In order to be able to use the shadow effect your animation must have transparent parts - it must be something on a transparent background. To add shadow, you simply select the area you want to add shadow and use the transparency tool.

To try this out:
1) Create a new frame
2) Select whole frame, press Delete, this should Delete everything and you should now see a transparent background (squared area)
3) Paint a circle or a small square or anything
4) Select whole frame and then click Selection -> Shadow

You should see the effect.

For saturation, you have to simply select an area and click Selection -> Adjust Hue/Saturation

Hi Karlis:

We just purchased and activated Easy Gif Animator 5.1 Personal version.
I followed the instructions that you posted in May 02, 2010 to generate a shadow effect.
In the pop-up window that appears when you select "Shadow.." , the shadow appears,
but there are no buttons in this pop-up window to apply the effect to the main frame.
The pop-window is cut off directly below the blur and intensity sliders. Expanding this window does not reveal the buttons "Reset" "OK" "Cancel" as shown on http://www.blumentals.net/egifan/whatsnew.php#sparkle .

The execute buttons are also missing from the pop-up window for "Adjust Hue/Saturation " option.

Do I need the Professional version or is there something I am missing.

Thanks

Ula.
