What is This tool?

It is a simple free way to create an infinite number of text-shadow effects in CSS.

The CSS text-shadow property is easily one of the most popular ways of enhancing the look of a website if used in an appropriate way. The function became popular after its re-release in the huge update to CSS - version 3.

text-shadow: -1px -1px 1px #333

The text-shadow syntax looks like the above. There are four properties, starting from left to right:

  • X-axis for shadow distance - horizontal position
  • Y-axis for shadow distance - vertical position
  • Blur - the blur radius of the shadow
  • Colour - this can be an rbg, rbga or hex value

As you can see the syntax is rather simple once you get used to it. Regardless, I decided to make this text-shadow generator as a quick way to generate the code from a visual perspective for those of us on a mission to meet a deadline.
