I need someone who can create shadows on the floor in photoshop. I made this family portrait and I need help creating shadows on the floor so that it doesnt look like everyone is just floating.

If you can help me with that let me know please.

In addition, if you can help me get good colors for the floor and redo the wall that would also be greatly appreciated. I don't like the floor color and I've been told the wall doesnt go good with the tones and that the pixels show. Any Help would be greatly appreciated. Here is the link.

Also, blur out a little of the sparkle in evryone's eyes, its a little too weird looking.

dude, just create a blank layer between the floor and your subjects. Airbursh, soft brush, black, paint in some rough ovals under them, then gauzzian blur.

Or lasso select your subjects, new layer, fill with black (so you have black sillouhettes of your subjects on new layes). Move this layer behind your subject, transform the layer, shrinking it down by their feet, smooshing it into almost nothing. Add some blur.

it's easy.
