    Hello there

    I'd like to create a ground mirror effect like the car was on a "white pure
    reflecting ground".

    It's like many site that sell goods with a white reflecting ground.

    The object is a DVD player, so it's in perspective.

    Please help, I'm quite newbie with PS.

    Thanks.

    Bob

    Maker the canvas size larger first , double the height dimension leave the
    width
    make a duplicate layer
    select it and horizontal flip, move it into place (shift, arrow down or
    drag)
    it should look like a butterfly sideways
    use transform perspective a and/or some filters to create the mirror effect

    or use filter liquefy there is a mirror tool in there.

    Thanks for your reply KatWoman
    Not sure I can achieve this. The final result I'd like is something like
    this:

    look at this picture:

    you can guess a reflection on the ground. I'd like the same, even for
    complex shapes (non geometrical objects), but more reflection on the object.

    It'is possible ?

    now I am confused by example one
    are you just trying to make the object look like it has a reflection on the
    surface??
    or like in examples 2-3 it shows a 'ghosty" shinier image as a reflection??
    in examples 2-3 those elements are in the orig photos, in one case as I said
    photograph the object on white plexiglass and example 3 is a part of a desk?

    Hi KatWoman,

    Yes. Looking at object 2-3, you see the object and also the reflection of
    the object on the surface where it's laying.
    Now, I've some objects and don't have the possibility to get the original
    photograph (I can't buy the object for the picture), so I'm looking for a
    way to add reflection of the object on the ground.
