Reflection in Water Tutorial

This is my first tutorial, so I hope it really helps some people. A neat effect, written in a REALLY user-friendly way. I wrote out every direction and where each button and option is, so even the most new-to-Photoshop person could use it, so if the more advanced Photoshop users could bear with me!

Update: Wow, this tutorial's had over 1200 views! Thanks so much to everyone for taking a look! Please post any art made using this tutorial, so I can link it!

hi, im usnig cs5 currently and i couldn't work out how you got the channel pallet t come up? so left it out, then i got stuck on the displace part, since when i type that in, and enter it it brings me to an open window so i can "open a displace map" so im kinda confused by that...

Wonderful tutorial. However, I have a problem. I use photoshop 7 and when I get to the step where I have to change the perspective of the water my 'transform' button becomes 'unclickable.' Even if I did exactely what you told me to in the tutorial. Have you ever had this problem?
Lady-Tima's avatar
No, unfortunately, but then again when I made this tutorial I was using Photoshop CS2, and have since moved up to CS5. Sorry.
Mohegan567's avatar
That's okay, I messed around a little bit and got it to look alright. Thanks anyway
