You can apply effects to objects using opacity and blends. Overlap objects, add transparency to objects, or knock out shapes behind objects. You can make the items transparent in a variety of ways. When you decrease opacity, the underlying artwork becomes visible through the surface of the object, stroke, fill, or text.

You use the Effects panel to specify the opacity an object, its stroke, its fill, or its text, You can decide how the object itself, its stroke, fill, or text blend with objects beneath. Where objects are concerned, you can choose to isolate blending to specific objects so that only some objects in a group blend with objects below them, or you can have objects knock out rather than blend with objects in a group. Areas of underlying objects appear through transparent object.

Add and edit transparency effects in the Effects panel A. FX button Blending Mode Specifies how colors in transparent objects interact with the objects behind them. See Specify how colors blend. Opacity Determines the opacity of an object, stroke, fill, or text. See Set the opacity of an object. Level Tells you the Object, Stroke, Fill, and Text opacity settings of the object, as well as whether transparency effects have been applied.

Click the triangle to the left of the word Object or Group or Graphic to hide or display these level settings.

The FX icon appears on a level after you apply transparency settings there, and you can double-click the FX icon to edit the settings. Isolate Blending Applies a blending mode to a selected group of objects. See Isolate blending modes. Knockout Group Makes the opacity and blending attributes of every object in a group knock out, or block out, underlying objects in the group. See Knock out objects within a group. FX button Displays a list of transparency effects. See Apply transparency effects.

Apply transparency effects Select an object. To apply effects to a graphic, select the graphic with the Direct Selection tool. Select a level to designate which parts or part of the object you want to change: Object Affects the entire object—its stroke, fill, and text.

Graphic Affects only the graphic selected with the Direct Selection tool. Effects you apply to the graphic remain with it when you paste the graphic in a different frame. Group Affects all objects and text in the group.

Use the Direct Selection tool to apply effects to objects within a group. Text Affects only text inside the object, not the text frame. Do any of the following to open the Effects dialog box: In the Effects panel or Control panel, click the FX button and choose an effect from the menu. From the Effects panel menu, choose Effects and then an effect name.

Transparency effects InDesign offers nine transparency effects. Many of the settings and options for creating these effects are similar.

Effects A. Gradient Feather Drop Shadow Adds a shadow that falls behind the object, stroke, fill, or text. Inner Shadow Adds a shadow that falls just inside the edges of the object, stroke, fill, or text, giving it a recessed appearance.

Outer Glow and Inner Glow Add glows that emanate from the outside or inside edges of the object, stroke, fill, or text. Bevel and Emboss Adds various combinations of highlights and shadows to give text and images a three-dimensional appearance. Satin Adds interior shading that makes a satiny finish.

Note: In addition to the descriptions covered here, see Common transparency settings and options. Common transparency settings and options Many transparency effect settings and options are the same across different effects. Common transparency settings and options include the following: Angle and Altitude Determine the lighting angle at which a lighting effect is applied.

A setting of 0 is equivalent to ground level; 90 is directly above the object. Click the angle radius or enter a degree measurement. Select Use Global Light if you want a uniform lighting angle for all objects. Blending Mode Specifies how colors in transparent objects interact with the objects behind them. Choke Along with the Size setting, determines how much of the shadow or glow is opaque and how much is transparent; large settings increase opacity and small settings increase transparency.

Noise Specifies the amount of random elements in the opacity of a glow or shadow as you enter a value or drag the slider. Opacity Determines the opacity of an effect; drag the slider or enter a percentage measurement. Size Specifies the amount of shadow or glow.

Spread Determines the transparency of the blur within the shadow or glow effect as established by the Size setting. A higher percentage makes the blur more opaque. Used by the Drop Shadow and Outer Glow. Technique These settings determine how the edge of a transparency effect interacts with background colors. Precise Preserves the edge of the effect, including its corners and other sharp details.

Preserves features better than the Softer technique. Use Global Light Applies the global light setting to the shadow. X Offset and Y Offset Offsets the shadow on the x- or y-axis by the amount you specify. Used by the Drop Shadow and Inner Shadow effects. Drop Shadow The Drop Shadow effect creates a three-dimensional shadow. You can offset the drop shadow along the x or y axis, as well as vary the blending mode, color, opacity, distance, angle, and size of the drop shadow. Use these options to determine how the drop shadow interacts with objects and transparency effects: Object Knocks Out Shadow The object appears in front of the drop shadow that it casts.

Shadow Honors Other Effects The drop shadow factors in other transparency effects. Click the Drop Shadow button on the Control panel to quickly apply a drop shadow to or remove a drop shadow from an object, a stroke, a fill, or text. Note: To select a color for a drop shadow, click the Set Shadow Color button next to the Blending Mode menu and choose a color. Inner Shadow The Inner Shadow effect places the shadow inside the object, giving the impression that the object is recessed.

You can offset the inner shadow along different axes and vary the blending mode, opacity, distance, angle, size, noise, and choke of the shadow. Outer Glow The Outer Glow effect makes the glow emanate from under the object. You can set the blending mode, opacity, technique, noise, size, and spread. Inner Glow The Inner Glow effect causes an object to glow from the inside out.

Choose the blending mode, opacity, technique, size, noise and choke settings, as well as the Source setting: Source Specifies the source for the glow. Bevel and Emboss Use the Bevel and Emboss effect to give objects a realistic, three-dimensional look. Size Determines the size of the bevel or emboss effect. Soften In addition to the Technique setting, blurs the effect to reduce unwanted artifacts and rough edges. Direction Choose Up or Down to make the effect appear pushed up or down. Depth Specifies the depth of the bevel or emboss effect.

The Shading settings determine how light interacts with the object: Angle and Altitude Sets the height of the light source. Use Global Light Applies the global light source as specified for all transparency effects. Choosing this option overrides any Angle and Altitude settings. Highlight and Shadow Specifies the blending mode for the bevel or emboss highlight and shadow.

Flattening divides transparent artwork into vector-based areas and rasterized areas. As artwork becomes more complex mixing images, vectors, type, spot colors, overprinting, and so on , so does the flattening and its results. You can specify flattening settings and then save and apply them as transparency flattener presets. Transparent objects are flattened according to the settings in the selected flattener preset.
