This is just a sample on how to make a reflection. There are many other ways in which you can do this. In most images the light does not come directly from above so will have to change the perspective of your reflection.

I would like to add somthing I think that you should use the Shear the layer or slection tool to make it look like it is on the ground if the light is comming from either the left or right side of the image, or if it is supposed to be up against a wall.

Another option is to use the perspective tool to make the shadow expand out as they often do for movie titles etc....

I find adding a gradient fill fading from white to a very light grey helps it look a bit more realistic.

nice tutorial indeed, but I want to do the same with a custom background (no single color like black or white). If I do a gradient from BGD to transparent, then I see an ugly black or white gradient on the reflection... Any idea out there?

Thanx!

Nice tutorial ...i've been looking for this for a while, but I can't seem to accomplish what im trying to do. I'm trying to get an icon I made, to look more like the original icon set i'm trying to add to. Possibly because the background is tranparent.. I don't know. Any ideas on how I can get this look?

Original Icon

thats looking good actually.. you need to round the edges off the envelope a little, and add a few shine highlights.. Also, fade out the bottom of your reflection so it blends nicely. Other than that, its quite a good job :w:
