Photoshop Tutorial: Mirror Text

I used this process in making my new theme. I hope this can also help you in modifying yor sites.

Here are the steps:
  1. Type any text (any word, any color, any font) on a plain black background.

  2. Rasterize the text and duplicate it.
  3. Ctrl+T the duplicate layer, transform it vertically and move it until their bases touch. Allow about 2px distance between the texts.

  4. Use the Rectangular or Elliptical Marquee Tool and adjust the Feather setting to 25px. Then keep pressing Delete to fade out your duplicate text. Also adjust the opacity of the duplicate layer if you want the duplicate to appear more faded.

  5. Now you have your mirror text. You can also do this to an image.
