Join Chris Orwig for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating reflections, part of Photoshop for Photographers: Compositing.
Next we're going to make a few final adjustments by adding in some reflections…and also by finishing off the overall color and tone.…Well let's go and click in to the Tree layer, then here I also want to decrease…the Opacity of this, so that it looks a little bit more faint, so that it looks…like it's actually inside of the light bulb.…Here we can just lower this maybe about 10% or so in order to create that effect.…Next, what I want to do is I want to create a few more versions of the treetop…so that we can create some reflections.…In order to do that, I need to merge my color adjustment layer down.…
So click into this color adjustment layer then press Command+E on a Mac or…Ctrl+E on Windows which will merge that down or commit that adjustment to this layer.…So now we can't change it we can't undo this, but that's good, that's…exactly what I want here.…Next we'll go ahead and copy this layer by pressing Command+J on a Mac or Ctrl+J on Windows.…And we'll copy that and then use the Move tool and click in move this to new spot.…
