Tag help: Pattern/image as shadow?

Posted under General

In addition to a tag describing the shadow's color being replaced by a pattern or image, would a drop_shadow tag also be worthwhile for images like those in the examples with the shadow that gives the impression that the character is risen above the background and casting a shadow on it?

I'd support the creation of a drop shadow tag; it's easy to catch visually, and it's at least as descriptive as the various background color tags. I would pass the creation of that tag to another though, since I've already got two pending tagging jobs in my queue right now.

I'm hesitant to go with "pattern" in the tag name because of the second example in the top post. I think I'm most in favor of shadow layer currently, but I'm not wed to it.
