The plugin allows you to create beautiful shadows by simply dragging a “light source,” which casts a shadow from selected elements. The shadow effect is achieved by layering and easing multiple drop-shadows to create a skeuomorphic shadow umbra and penumbra.
“When more than one fill, stroke, or effect is applied to an element you’ll now see a draggable icon on hover, making it easier to reorder things.” A small but mighty update — it was really painful to drag properties before!
After Smooth Shadow generator made rounds in the design community, its author built a matching Figma plugin. It’s the easiest way to build a nice smooth shadow, and as it’s based on a box-shadow CSS property it’s easy to export and reuse in code later.
