    Drop shadow in placed PS file

    Steve Fairbairn Level 5

      I think I already know the answer to this one but can anyone confirm?


      I placed a Photoshop layer into Illy. It's got a % black multiplying drop shadow layer effect.

      When placed into Illy the multiplying doesn't work. I'm using a red backgound colour and it's obvious that something's wrong.

      The shadow looks light brownish on the bright red ground no matter whether I have Overprint Preview turned on or not.


      Do I either have to (1) do the whole thing in Photoshop or (2) take the effect off the Photoshop layer and re-create in in Illy?


      Any remarks welcome.
