"reflected in a puddle (water)" effect

Post by Snagg » Fri, 17 Feb 2006 02:47:10


I have a normal landscape photo and I'd like an effect to make it look
like as reflected in a water puddle.

Any idea?

(hope I made me understood..)

Flip it upside down, make it a bit darker and use Filter - Distort -
Ocean Ripple' or 'Wave' or 'ZigZag'.

that's good

and for a broken glass effect? I mean like a texture, like if the
picture was made by peaces of a broken glass.

Do i need a photo and then try with the texture?

'Flood' isn't free. There is a free demo, but the full version is
commercial.

Yes, it is cool.


Perhaps you could describe it a little more. Do you just want a facetted
look - in which case check out the Stained Glass filter that comes with
Photoshop, or do you want the pieces to be shifted slightly, similar to a
broken mirror or cubist look?

the second one. Exactely as a broken mirror!

Is there any plugin? I'm trying mo make a cover for a cd we've just
recorded. Nothing special, just 3 songs...
If you have any funny idea.... We have our name (Reversibile) and a
logo that I'm still drawing..

I was looking for some strange effect... thought the broken glass was
good...

thak you all!

bye

[how to create a broken glass effect]

Here's a procedure that creates a broken mirror effect using Displace and
Stained Glass. These are filters that come with Photoshop.

1) Create an image of roughly the same dimensions as your original
2) add noise
3) Use the stained glass filter to create a pattern whose pieces are the
size of the broken glass you want
4) Save the stained glass pattern as a psd file
5) Click on the image you want to break into pieces
6) Select Filter>Distort>Displace...
7) Set the Horizontal and Vertical scale to 100 - this controls how far the
pieces of glass move
8) Click OK, and see if you like the look - if not, do an undo, and repeat
with a different scale setting

If you prefer not to have the edges of the pieces show so clearly, use
Filter>Other>Maximum to remove the outlines of the stained glass sections
created in step 3.
