TOPIC: Remove Reflection Split

Remove Reflection Split 30 May 2017 10:18 #8172

Hi, Ok I am not an avent Photoshop user, Lightroom is my weapon of choice but as L/R does not support layers I have P/S CS6.
I downloaded the REFLECTIONS action and very good it is, but can anyone explain please how or if you can remove the black split bar (for want of a better word) between the image and reflection?
It can be seen in a post from a while back under Topic started 07 Feb 2012 00:53 by frizzylee they put up an image near the bottom of page one www.panosfx.com/forum/8-panosfx-tutorial...reflections-question that has the split bar where as I would like to show an image that is laying on Perspex or Glass and reflection is underneath it on the same media it lays on.
Many Thanks.
Russ

Hello Russ.

I assume that you are talking about the space between the image and its reflection (correct me if I am wrong), which looks like a black bar because of the dark background layer:


Make sure the "Reflection" layer is selected. Then press the up arrow key as many times as needed, to nudge the reflection upwards:


The upper edge of the reflection looks slightly pushed to the background, in relation to the photo (the reflection it looks darker at the very top). This is due to a special gradient fill I applied to the layer mask. To change it, do the following.
Press D to reset the swatches.
Click the "Reflection" layer mask and press Alt-backspace (Mac: option-backspace) to remove my gradient fill.
Press G to select the gradient tool and select the black-to-white gradient.
Apply a gradient fill that starts from the lower third of the photo to the upper third of the reflection.

You should end up with a reflection that looks like this:


Let me know if I have answered your question.
