Add a shadow to picture

Please take notice that if you are going to use an JPG file for shadow effect,

let change -background none to -background white!

Because -background none make a transparent effect while JPG doesn't support transparent! And when viewing, you will get a bacl box!

So we will use an white background under! We can use other color as well!

Alternatives

There are 2 alternatives - vote for the best!

Terminal - Alternatives

It works on my machine! And i surely it must work on others if you had ImageMagick6.4.3!(I'm using this version)! This is the image is made with this command!

I'm mostly sure that you can not do this with only 14 character! Let me know if you can do that!
