Add Curved Drop Shadow plugin for Acorn

This is a variation on the Curved Drop Shadow without Border plugin for Acorn I posted a few days ago (which is itself a derivative of the original Create New Image with Curved Drop Shadow plugin). It adds the drop shadow to the current image instead of spawning a new document. The drop shadow is added to the active layer.

Download AddCurvedDropShadow.py (2.3 KB) and install it in ~/Application Support/Acorn/Plug-Ins.

Curved Drop Shadow without Border (A Modified Plug-in for Acorn)

This is a very slightly modified version of the “New Image with Curved Drop Shadow” plug-in that ships with Acorn. The original plug-in adds a narrow white border with a gray frame to the image in addition to the curved drop shadow. I removed the code that adds the border, so all this version does is add the subtle shadow (illustrated in the screenshot below).

Download New Image with Curved Drop Shadow without Border.jstalk (1.5 KB; unzip and install in ~/Library/Application Support/Acorn/Plug-Ins; restart Acorn). I’m not sure what license terms apply to this plug-in, but the JSTalk plug-in and the original Python filter were written by Gus, inspired by the screenshots in an article by Sebastiaan.
