[Tutorial] Giving Text That Mirror Effect

[SIZE="5"][COLOR="red"]Mirror Text Photoshop Tutorial[/COLOR][/SIZE]

First: Start with any size canvas, I use 350x150 for signatures.

Second: Add a Text, any size will do, as long as you leave at least half the size of your text under it. I also recommend using a more basic font, as those more "Classy" font's don't have near the final appearance turnout as the basic ones. (For the best effect, use lighter colored letters.)


Third: Duplicate the font you've added. Then go to Edit > Transform > Flip Vertical. Then slide the duplicated layer up to meet up with the bottom of your first layer.


Fourth: With the Second layer selected go to the Rectangular Marquee Tool and select the bottom half of the second layer. Then right click and click Feather, any number will do for the feathering, but for the best font effect I use 15. Then take a soft eraser , I'm going to use 35 px with 0% Hardness.

You can also change the Opacity of the mirror for a better effect.


Enjoy, hopefully you followed it right and everything turned out right.
