With NHLinearShadow you can add a shadow like this:

using a simple way!

You can add a near "Linear Shadow Color" choosing a color like [UIColor redColor] or you can use "Linear Shadow" based on a photo, this will find the average color and add a shadow

How to use?

Installation with CocoaPods

I recommend you to take a look at CocoaPods and use it for dependency management in your iOS projects.

To add NHLinearShadow to your project it is necessary that the following lines are in your Podfile:

platform :ios, '7.0'
pod "NHLinearShadow", "~> 1.0.1"

Installation without CocoaPods

  1. Add the NHLinearShadow into your project
  2. Import NHLinearShadow, #import "UIImageView+NHLinearShadow.h"

    if you want use a Linear Shadow Color use this:
    [UIImageView addShadowWithColor:"anUIColor"] inImageView:"anUIImageView"];
    else if you want to use a Linear Shadow based on a photo use this:
    [UIImageView addShadowWithAverageColorInImage:"anUIImage" inImageView:"anUIImageView"];
