Dominico made a tutorial some minutes ago, i though i should point some better way of making reflection:

first chose a picture you want to apply a reflection, i chose the tbogt logo...

user posted image

now you should double the canvas since the picture must be flipped
duplicate layer and flip it vertical, it should look like this

user posted image

now take the second layer and set Layer mask> reveal all

user posted image

in the layer panel it should look like this

user posted image

select the gradient tool and select the black-white one

user posted image

now draw a line from bottom to top (top to bottom if the gradient is white-black)

user posted image

it should look like this

user posted image

looks okay on transparent background, but on color the transparency is not so good

you should create a new layer and make it black or other dark colors ,to modify it just select the rectangle (i made it red in the pic below)

user posted image

as you can see it looks like a simple flip, adjust it using the same methods until will look something like this

user posted image

remove background and it should look like this

user posted image

this tutorial is not all about reflection, you can do this on a basic layer and blend images together.

Nice tutorial man. Maybe you can post one on how to make a 3d folder look like because I saw one in your early creations.

Tried that and it works, just like in Corel lol, where you drag the glass icon over the selection to make it transparent lol

Narcis, you know what I'm talking about. I usually used other ways of making layer transparent. Nice hint btw.

Thanks for the info, Narcis, I still learn new things about Photoshop. As I said, anyone uses their method, if you give same pic to 3 users the final result may be the same but they used 3 different ways to make it look like that. It's just like cooking, everyone makes the same recipe but it tastes different.

Nice tutorial, but I just have something to add. To make the reflection look more realistic. You should try making it a tad bit smaller (not width wise). I read that in a tutorial I read somewhere on the internet sometime ago.

there are more things to add other than that, i wanted to keep it to basic, you can also add glass effect, blur, ocean ripple and many other effects (depending on the surface you're making the ref)

Everything is the same for CS5, maybe you're missing a step.
