CSS play - drop shadow (not box-shadow) two ways
27th March 2014
IE7+, Firefox, Safari, Chrome and Opera.
1. The basic gif animation with no shadow:
2. Using box-shadow
The 'box' containing the animation has a shadow applied, not much use.
3. CSS filter drop-shadow for Chrome, Safari, Opera and IE7/8/9
This uses the CSS filter to apply the drop shadow and applies this to the images within the animation.
4. Using SVG drop-shadow for Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and IE10+
This uses an inline SVG filter which applies the drop shadow to the images within the animation.
The inline method is necessary for IE10+.

This demonstrations show two methods of implementing a 'drop shadow', not to be confused with a 'box-shadow', on a transparent gif animation.
The first method is to use just CSS, and this works in IE7/8/9 (although the drop shadow is not very good), Chrome (using filter), Safari (using filter), Opera (using filter) and Firefox (using filter with SVG).
The second method uses inline SVG, filter and image which works in Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and IE10+.
CSS 'filter' is such a useful style it is a pity that it is only supported in Chrome, Safari and Opera.
You may use this method on your personal 'non-profit' web site without seeking my permission. A link back to CSSplay is always appreciated.
Commercial usage is also permitted without seeking approval, but I would ask that a donation is considered to support my work on CSSPlay.
If you are having problems integrating any of my demonstrations into your website then I now offer a service to fault find and correct any errors that you may have introduced. Please email me for more information.
