Export photo with shadow issue

How do I export a photo with a shadow so that the shadow isn’t exported as an extra area? When designing a website, the developer tries to export the photo, but it is exported with an additional drop shadow box that does not give the exact dimension of the photo.

Wrap this photo in the container frame, add the shadow to it and remove it from the photo. The developer will be able to download the photo from inside of the frame and drop shadow will not affect it.
