Photoshop Shorts: Create A Reflection That Can Be Adjusted

In this “Photoshop Shorts” episode, I show how to create a reflection in Photoshop. Not just that but one that can be done quickly and can then be tuned so that it looks like a mirror-reflection all the way through to a semi-matt surface. I use a picture of a dog to demonstrate the technique, but it’s equally applicable (and just as quick) to use on product or portrait photography too.

The video uses layers, masks, the Blur filter, Smart Objects and layer modes. So just a few things to get your head around! But I go through step-by-step, so hopefully, it is easy to follow!
