Create realistic chrome reflections in Photoshop: Pixel Playground

Creating realistic chrome in Photoshop

Explore Pixel Playground at lynda.com.

Picking up where we left off, Bert shows us how to create realistic chrome reflections in the trim of a headlight. He begins by sharing a classic technique using the Adobe Photoshop Spherize filter that still works today. His is a more modern process involving the Warp tool to bend images into the reflections around the light. He finishes by adding a few additional layers with reflections from other areas of the scene.
