This may not be a news to the ‘gurus’ in the industry but could be a handful for the ‘beginners’. When you apply Drop Shadow to a text or an object in Adobe Photoshop, you can separate the effect (Drop Shadow) from the object or text applied.
I want you to note that it concerns not only Drop Shadow but the other Layer Style Effect such as Contour, Stroke and the rest.
All you need to do is to first apply the Layer Style Effect as shown on the box below:
After applying it, right-click on the effect as shown below and click Create Layer.
The Shadow will thereby be separated from the object.
