Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding the door's reflection, part of Creating Perspective with Photoshop.
That door now has a shadow, but look at the floor beneath it. …It's made of polished wood. We need to add a reflection to that wood, …if we're really to make the door look like it's part of the scene. …So let's Zoom in. I want to select the bottom part of this …door, since we'll only see the very bottom of it as the reflection. …We'll switch to the door layer and I can make a Marquee selection that includes that. …Let's make a new layer and call it Door reflect.…
We'll flip it vertically using Edit > Transform, and Flip Vertical. …And I'll drag it down, so that the left hand corner meets the left-hand corner of …the door. We could now use Free Transform to grab …the opposite corner and again, when I drag this I'm sheering. …So if I hold the Shift key down, it's going to constrain that to purely …vertical movement. And I can drag this right down like so.…
Let's apply that and nudge it up a little bit so it meets the door. …We need the edge as well, so let's go to our door edge layer, select it. …
