Join Steve Caplin for an in-depth discussion in this video Combining parts of the reflection into a group, part of Photoshop Artist in Action: Steve Caplin's Day for Night.
Now that the front and side of the building have been copied and made into a …reflection, we can combine the two layers into a group. …This will allow us to control the overall opacity of the entire group, and will …also allow us to add extra elements. And we can see the problem, we have the …reflection of the face of the building in two parts, and we've lowered the opacity …to 50%. When we add the reflection behind, well …we could lower that to 50% as well, but the trouble is the two 50% capacity's are …conflicting with each other. And we're seeing through them, and we …don't want that to happen. When we add the gates reflection, well …we're getting a similar problem here as well.…
So what we'll do, is set all of these opacities to zero, so we get a full …strength of reflection of each one. Select all of them, and combine all these …layers into a new group. And we can do this, using, the popup …menu, on the Layers panel, and we can choose New Group from Layers. …It'll prompt us for a name for the group, so we'll call it Reflection. …
