In the past I have received requests to make a reflection of a text or an image that has a layer style(s) on them (e.g. stroke, outer/inner glow, etc). The problem with this is, when I go in and make a reflection (I use the layer mask method), the styles are not reflected as they are supposed to (Show to the right). Has anyone else encountered this problem? What should I do?
Best and easiest fix is to just create a layer group with the type layer in the layer group folder with no mask. Then just apply the mask to the layer group instead.
Ok the first thing: in the typo, the letters like y - a part under the baseline, not lucky to mirror cause the whole feeling of uncertainty. Like a swing, but i think the "styles" just a example.
I think you working with layer styles:
1. group the all layer which you will mirroring,
2. douplicate the group,
3. merge group to one layer,
4. ctr+t+right click Flip vertical and positioning,
5. Customise mirroring: making Reflection blur, and if you working with very high detail image Refraction Blur, use this:
feather, blur or defocus, transparent setting, clearing area, and everything that is good for the image
