Hereâ€™s a very simple tutorial to add a reflection to text. Its very simple but very important. Step 1: Create/Open your document and type in something. White background and Ethnocentric Font, Black. Once you have gotten the basic concept, you can do this with other types of backgrounds. Step 2: Duplicate the Text Layer (Ctrl+J). Step 3: Rasterize the type by Right-clicking on the text in layer in the layers palette or go to Layer > Rasterize > Layer Step 4: Go to Edit > Free Transform or press Ctrl+T to transform your text. Step 5: Drag the top anchor downwards to have the text peel off downwards into a reflection. Drag it to about 80% of the size of the original text. Step 6: Tap the down arrow key 1 or 2 times to separate the bases of the two text layers. Step 7: Reduce the Opacity of the reflection layer to about 40% Step 8: Ctrl+Click the reflection layer to select the text. Then, using your gradient tool, add a Black to White gradient. Drag from the top to bottom of the text in the reflection layer. I know I really made a simple process complicated, but what the hell.
