In this tutorial you will learn how to create a reflection: your subject can be either a writing or an object.

Begin by creating a new document in Gimp. I’m using a 1600×500  sized document with black background. Then create a new transparent layer over the first one, and name it “writing”. Write what you prefer:

1

Duplicate the “writing” layer.

2

Select the move tool and position the duplicated writing under the original one.

21

Use the reflection tool to mirror the second writing.

22

Rotate the image of  180° with the rotation tool.

23

Match the two writings with the move tool, as you can see in the image below:

24

This step consists of softening the lowest writing in order to make it seems a reflection. On the second writing layer, right – click—>Add a layer mask and select “BWhite full opacity” in the window that appears.

4

Check to have black and white as primary and secondary color, then trace a line from the half of the first writing to the half of the second  one with gradient tool, as in the image  below:

5

This will be the final effect:

riflesso
