I use tombo N89 (light tan) or 970 (light grey) and no streaking. I lightly go around the edge (no backtracking so no streaks). The shadow line is only about 1/8" thick.

I rarely halo, I like the effect, I just don't do it that often. When I shadow I consider where the light source would be as if I was standing in the sun and shadow the side where my own shadow would fall. The shadow line is only about 1/8" thick. If you shadow one image you probably should shadow all the images so you have a universal look.

Tip: If you use MS Word, there is a feature where you can add shadows to boxes, etc. It's on the Draw menu. It's a good way to see where a shadow could be placed.
