Water Shadow Text

Posted in photoshop with tags , , , on January 24, 2008 by keronii


Make new canvas with your text in it.

Duplicate the layer.

Choose the first layer (original layer below the copy layer) then rasterize this layer with Layer>Rasterize>Type.

Flip the text in above layer with Edit>Transform>Flip Vertical.

Then arrange the position of that text shadow below the original text.

Now we give this text reflection with some touches:

  • We give gradation effect. Layer>Layer Style>Gradient Overlay. In Blend Mode choose Normal, Opacity: 100, Style: Linear, Scale: 100, Gradation: Black to White, Angle: -90.

  • Then choose Filter>Distort>Ripple with Amount: 150 and Size: Medium.
