Kori - did you read the latest from Minted in the current challenge? You no longer need Photoshop - the drop shadows will automatically be added to your file upon upload (or at voting time for the current challenge). The new instructions are in teh latest submission kit. So don't run out and buy Photoshop!!!

Oh, yes, that's probably the problem. I think the psd files would also open in Photoshop Elements, which would be a less expensive option than the full Photoshop.

Kori, there is the illustrator template for designing to the right specs but then there is also a photoshop "submission image" template. Are you using that one, too?

Hi, Kori! Maybe the fact that your background is showing up as black is obscuring the drop shadow? Make sure you put a solid white rectangle behind your design in Illustrator (or InDesign) before placing it in the Photoshop template file (.psd). Also, make sure you are placing your file in the layer called "Your Design Here." Good luck! [Also, I noticed you have me picked as a favorite designer - you may be the first to ever do that! I'm flattered. :)]
