Everyone loves a bit of drop shadow!
But I don't love the fact that when I use it on small areas it is really pixelated. Is there any way around this pixelation?
By setting the Document Raster Effects higher. Effect > Document Raster Effects Settings...
Increasing this will mean you will also have to increase the drop shadow effect size to maintain the distance of shadow.
Cheers for this. Been wondering about that for a long time
I like this advice and think you should mark Paul's answer as the answer it will definitely help many others understand this setting.
It really would be helpful so please mark Paul's post.
