I need your help to try and resolve a problem I am having with some png images. I am using the images as backgrounds for the horizontal menu on my website http://sleepamazing.com/
. What I am trying to do is emulate the drop down menu effects from target.com. As you can see by comparing the drop down menus from the two sites, my site has a sort of white tone to the shadow (you can see it as you hover your mouse over "Products" or "Information" at the top) which shows up really well when the drop down menu passes over the red stripe. Target's does not. I know I can select out the shadow and work with that, but I was wondering if there was a way to apply perhaps a gradient mask to the drop shadow to make it go from grey to transparent, without the white tone.
Or perhaps one of you experts that are really skilled at photoshop knows of an even better way to match Target's effect. To be honest, I'm pretty new to Photoshop.
Any help I can get would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a million in advance.
