16-may-2022 update: added an application made by @eddiel to generate the code for a shadow (check out explanations below)
Here is version 2.0 for one of my first Power Apps components which will allow you to add nice good-looking shadow effects in your applications:
This component, called the ShadowBox, allows you to render a rectangle shadow. The shadow is fully customizable and the corners of the inner box can be rounded (to the point that it renders a full-circle shadow).
For this new version of the component, properties have been regrouped:
All details about the component and its properties, along with important notes, can be found here: https://github.com/e-gallis/PowerApps/tree/master/Components/ShadowBox
To download the component: https://github.com/e-gallis/PowerApps/blob/master/Components/ShadowBox/ShadowBox.msapp
I hope you'll like this component and that it will help you create nice applications...
EDIT - 16-may-2022 - @eddiel has made a little application with a nice UI to allow you to generate the code for a shadow and just copy/paste it to your image control:
The application is attached to this post and can be downloaded below. Thanks for this @eddiel... 😉

Hi @R3dKap . Thank you very much for this great tool.
I have just a small question?
I have been trying to add the component inside a form and for some reason I can't copy/paste or insert\component.
Any idea what could be the issue?
Again, thank you very much!
I'm not sure you can use components in a form (known limitation).
The work around would be to download the app I created, which includes a code generate to create an image for the drop box, rather than use a component.
See original post - and download the app - see below for link screenshot. Let me know if that works. Its not too complicated. Just use the app and follow the instructions in the app.
