Html 5 Canvas Text App Part IILast time we made the Canvas text app.This time we will add shadows and download functionality to it. Lets get started.

If you haven't seen the first part of this series , I recommend you to do so here...,

context.shadowColor
For the color of the shadow.Color is given in the format  “#RRGGBB”.
