Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Reflecting and skewing objects, part of Illustrator CS6 Essential Training.
The final stop on our tour of the transformations inside of Illustrator brings…us to skewing and reflecting.…Skewing allows you to transform an object into almost like a slanted-like…appearance, while reflecting actually creates exactly what you think;…a reflection of that object, almost like you've mirrored it in a way.…Let's first start off by taking a look at the reflecting.…I'm going to select this object that I have on my artboard here and I'll make it…a little bit larger so you can see it.…I'll just resize it like so.…If I wanted to reflect this apple, I'll go over to the Tools panel, click and…hold on the Rotate tool and find the Reflect tool.…
Once I've got the Reflect tool, I can simply come to the edge of this apple and…click and drag to reflect it.…As you see, it's flipped it right over.…If I want to undo that, Ctrl+Z to undo.…I can also move this reference point as well.…So if I move the reference point and then click, the reference point creates the…point of reflection just like this.…
