Reflection Tut

Recommended Posts

This is just a simple toturial in how to make an image reflect. This is for you to practice until you feel more confident in your reflection skills.

[b]Step 1: Start with a dark BG and type something in white. For this tutorial I typed "reflection."

Step 2:From there duplicate the "reflection" layer.

Step 3:Now highlight the duplicated "reflection" layer, right click and select rasterize.

Step 4: Then go to Edit and select Free transport (or Ctrl+T)

Step 5: A box should appear around the "reflection" word. Now grab (by holding down your left button on your mouse) the top center box and flip it down.

Step 6: Use the arrows buttons on your keyboard to move the highlighted layer, so that both layer are touching. Double click the box to remove it. (you can't anything else if you leave the Box on) and it should look something like this:

Step 7:From there you can either lower the opacity on your copy layer, or use your eraser brush.

it should look like this...[/b]

Very cool, Nem. I have PSP 9 (all I could get my hands on), and I thought I'd show you that your tutorials work great (I think at least). Here's what I came up with (I used a "Metallica Font" for the letters, in case you can't tell... :D )
