Add a shadow to picture

convert {$file_in} \( +clone -background black -shadow 60x5+10+10 \) +swap -background none -layers merge +repage {$file_out}
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!

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! http://axcoto.info/v/g.png! I'm mostly sure that you can not do this with only 14 character! Let me know if you can do that!
