This tutorial is going to teach you how to add a reflection of your text.
Open up a new document and type out your sitename/desired text.
Right click your text layer and hit duplicate layer. Hit Ok when the prompt comes up. Then go to Edit > Transform > Flip Vertical.
In the layers palette, drag this duplicated text layer BELOW your original layer.
Your document will look a little silly.
We’re going to fix that right now. Move the top layer up slightly, and the bottom layer down slightly, so it creates a mirror of what the text normally looks like.
Change the opacity of the reflected text layer from 100% to something you feel is subtle enough to not look overwhelming on the sign/header you’re working on.
I changed mine to 50%.
I added a drop shadow as well to the top text layer and moved it down to a more natural spot in the document.
And that’s it!
