Sorry about the noise.  Right after I sent this message out, I found a way
to do it, though not pretty.  I kept selecting the regions I wanted the drop
shadow to appear on, then inverted the selection.  I finally got the look I
wanted, but I also ended up with a bunch of transparent squares with drop
shadows onto transparent backgrounds...

Subject:        Transparency Selection

I realize this is probably a newbie question ...

Is there any way to select the transparent section of an image?

What I am trying to create is an image that will look decent on any color
background (hence the transparency).  I want the image to have a *cut out*
appearance so I was going to select the transparent portion and use the drop
shadow script.

Or, is there a better way to do this?
