Reflections add a sense of elegance and uniformity to your design and it is pretty useful to know how to create your very own reflection of a piece of text or image. To do so, go ahead and open up Photoshop and your design or piece of text. First of all you want to go ahead and rasterize your image. After that go ahead and duplicate it by right clicking it and then hitting “duplicate layer”. Once you have duplicated the image, go to “Edit” on the top menu and go down to “Transform” and from the list choose “Flip vertical”. Then nudge the image to a position right under your original layer. Now take the rectangular marquee tool and create a rectangle about one-fourth the way down from the top of your copied image that it is now flipped vertically all the way to the bottom. Then go ahead and right click on your selection and hit “Feather”. In the pop up menu enter in the number of pixels you want feathered (I usually enter 30). Now hit delete and you should have a slightly fading image. Finally adjust the opacity of this image in the layer menu to make it look subtle and natural. I set my opacity to 35%. Your end product should look similar to the image below. If you need any help or assistance email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
