    Hi all,

    I have been wanting to create a moving water reflection in photoshop and have been getting more and more frustrated as I can't get it exactly how I want.

    I've looked at so many tutorials and videos.

    I know how to create a water reflection.

    But I dont know how to make the water reflection MOVE in the image the way I want it to, in otherwords an animation or .gif.

    I have had some success but still not satisfied.

    THIS IS WHAT I HAVE ACHIEVED:

    THIS IS WHAT I WANT IT TO BE LIKE:

    nb: I have been using a photoshop plug in and a program called image ready.
    I just want the water to be calmer and the waves to be larger like in the 2nd example

    Thanks in advance!!!

    Might help? :dontknow: In spite of the name 'Photography and Digital Imaging', most of the people that come here regularly are on the photography side and probably haven't tried animated reflections in Photoshop, so I don't know how much help we can actually provide (beyond linking things like the above.)

    I don't know an awful lot about photoshop since I don't use it, but there's a very simple application called Squirlz Water Reflections that you might want to look up. Easy water reflection animation, rain/snow and so on. Might be of use to you.

    Thanks, I have seen the above link before, it helped me to get the picture that I have already but I am striving to get the one in the example I have provided!

    I have also heard of Squirlz Water Reflections so I may try it.

    Is there any forums that could serve me better for this question? xx

    Have a go at following the tutorial using Squirlz - that's what the author seems to use.

    You may find more help at the Adobe forums.
