I got this drop shadow action, but don't know how to make selection required by action.
Basically I need to drop shadow to the pictures I have to publish them to my pbase page.

1. Use Image > Canvas Size to make room for the drop shadow.
2. Click on the new background with the magic wand
3. Choose Select > Inverse.
4. Apply the action.

Magic wand not always selecting around picture, some lighter shots getting selected inside too. Do you know how to fix this?

Just set the Tolerance of the magic wand tool to a very small value, e.g. 1 or zero.
