Yes- but not in BV. You can do it in MS Paint, paint.net and many other photo editing programs.

What are you trying to do- I can do it for you if you explain exactly what you need and the approx size.

Take a look at www.netisopen.com (http://www.netisopen.com) and get an idea of what can be done ( I made the banner).

Hi, if its just for headings or logo’s. You could use the BV logo maker without a background.

Hi Andy, assuming I have this right with the shadowing part. The Collectors-info.com logo on my site is made with the BV logo maker. Admittedly I took a screen shot of the original to get the original 60kb down to down to 7kb (may of pushed it a bit to much, lol) But the original was made with the BV logo maker.

Cool! Good to know as I had resolved myself to using paint.net (which by the way is an awesome program).

Hi, Just select the logo shape as text only to get rid of the background & play with the text shadow offset.
The Paint program is really good. Beth posted it ages ago & I have since placed it on some of my posts. One thing it is very good & quick at doing is remove unwanted items of an image you might have (lets say) borrowed. lol

Good luck.

here ya go! This is used inline. there is also a method to use in a style sheet that you insert into the head of your page.
I found this googling with: html+text+drop shadow

Here is the url where I found the info:

I inserted the following code into Notepad and saved it using the .html extension, then previewed it. works fine, but it uses the browser's default font, so it may look weird without specifying a font in the code.

<title>CSS- Text Drop Shadows</title>
<div style="margin:auto auto auto auto; width:450px;filter:shadow;color:#0099CC; font-size:32px; line-height:200%; position: relative; left: 40px; top: 20px; font-family: 'Century Gothic'; font-style: normal; text-align: center; font-weight: bold;">My Drop-Shadowed Text</div>
