Professional Text Reflection

Create a quality, professional text header for your website with this technique.

 

PART 1

Get your background and create a new text layer on top of it.

 

PART 2

Duplicate this text layer (Layer >> Duplicate Layer)

Flip the new text layer vertically (Edit >> Transform >> Flip Vertically)

Place it right under the existing text layer and lower its opacity (42% is what I have)

Right click on the new layer and select “Rasterize Type” so that it is editable.

 

PART 3

Now take your eraser (brush setting, 17 pixel diameter, 52% opacity worked for me) and erase through the bottom of your text a few times.

Tip: Hold shift and drag to make a straight eraser line.

 

PART 4

Create a new layer and with your airbrush (soft, 13 pixel diameter ,100% opacity) draw a line right under your main text.

 

PART 5

Lower the opacity of this layer (12% opacity was used here).
