reflecting text tutorial

What you'll need:
  • One of the Photoshop Programs

  • What you'll be making:

    This is an example on a sign

    The Steps
    1. Once you're done designing your text, make sure the text is all merged into one layer. Heres my text.

    2. Duplicate the text. On the original layer (bottom layer) click "Edit >> Transform >> Flip Vertical" and drag the text directly under the original text.
    I'm an idiot and finished this tutorial and then realized this picture is cropped oops, but your entire text will be showing flipped underneath.

    Since I accidentally cropped the picture above, here's the example I had on my old tutorial.

    3. Change the reflecting layers opacity to 70% or whatever looks best depending on your colors and sign <-- very important

    4. Click on the 'Eraser Tool'. Click on the circle brush that looks kinda fuzzy

    Erase a little over half of the reflecting text.

    Keep in mind the text above is just on a basic background. It'll look much different/better in a sign! (this is also why I said to adjust the opacity to what looks best on your sign)
