Faking soft dropshadows

With the new import/export snapshot abilities in Rev 2.7, it just got
much easier to do certain kinds of image manipulation, and I finally
got around to making a stack that will add relatively convincing
dropshadows to a copy any image, transparent or not.
Basically, it copies flat colour into the image, makes multiple
copies of it with different opacities and positions, then groups
everything together so that it can be exported or imported as a new
image with full transparency.

You can also change the colour of the dropshadow...
