Object Reflection
Hey,

I am trying to use gimp to reflect an irregular object, imagine something like a cereal box. I am very familiar with inkscape but the program cannot do what I need. Adobe can do it but I was wondering if it is possible with gimp?

http://designshack.net/articles/graphics...tions-101/

Could any of the pros on the forum advise me how to go about doing it using gimp/if possible?

Thanks,
Jester

Thanks a million! I was hoping it would be possible to do with gimp as I am not looking forward to purchasing photoshop!

RE: Object Reflection
For the fade out effect, right click on the reflected layer in the layers window, click "add layer mask"
- Then use the Blend gradient blend tool:
shape"linear" Offset: 0.0

In the layers window, adjust the layer "mode:" to better blend with background image
(whether solid color or an image)

a quick google search: "reflection in gimp" finds a nice tutorial "Reflection with GIMP - We..."
- Even has the "add layer mask" step Smile
