What is the history of drop shadow?

While the use of shadows in various forms surely dates back to some ancient period in painting, its hard to not think of Kai Krause when you ask this.

Right before the web took off, at the beginning of the nineties, the first versions of Photoshop started to attract graphic artists. The limited selection of tools, such as filters and the lack of layers for image composition forced people to come up with all kinds of creative solutions for combining images.
A legendary set of tutorials, ‘Kai’s Power Tips and Tricks for Adobe Photoshop’, emerged with ‘chops’, or ‘channel operations’.
Along with the tutorials, came an aesthetic explosion of all gloss, shadow, and reflection that was to become his trademark. Krause’s later work with software interface at MetaTools and MetaCreations took this style even further and has later been echoed in countless 3D rendering exercises and web buttons, for better or worse.

How do I make smooth drop shadows in Photoshop?

What your picture shows isn’t a drop shadow. It’s an extruded outline.

Illustrator is much better for this but there is a way to do it in Photoshop using the 3D extrusion tool. To be honest I hate Photoshop’s 3D tool. I spend a lot of time in different 3D applications and Photoshop’s implementation is extremely counter-intuitive. But here are the steps


Start with your letterforms on a separate layer than your background.

Give them fill and stroke using the layer style palette.

Convert that layer a smart object. Then go to the 3D menu and select “New 3D extrusion from selected layer” (go ahead and switch to the 3D workspace when prompted). In the 3D palette select “Current View” and then in the properties palette change from Perspective to Orthographic.

Select your 3D layer in the 3D palette, then in the properties palette uncheck Catch Shadows and Cast Shadows. Then select the Coordinates tool from the top of the menu (fourth icon). In the center, the XYZ column enters 2° for x, and -2° for y. If the extrusion isn’t deep enough, click on the Mesh icon (the first icon on the top row) and adjust the extrusion.

Return to your layers palette. Turn off your background layer. From the 3D menu select “Render Document to File”. Select your destination filename and folder. Select Photoshop for the format. For Alpha Channel select Straight-Unmatted. For 3D Quality select Ray Traced Final. Click Render. After a short eternity, your file will be rendered.
Open your file. You may need to do some slight retouching where the outline and extrusion meet. I always get a few noticeable artifacts where they don’t meet perfectly, but it’s really a simple clean-up.
