Turn your reflection into a painting in three simple steps
01 Turn the world upside down
First, rotate your image. Go to Image >Image Rotation >Flip Canvas Vertical. Crop it so that only the reflection remains. You may need to adjust the rotation as you crop – move your mouse to the corners of the box to see the rotation icon, then drag to rotate the box.
02 Add some texture
Hit Cmd/Ctrl+J to duplicate your image. With the copied layer selected, go to Filter >Filter Gallery >Textures >Texturizer. Choose how much grain in the paper you’d like (we used 109%), leaving the relief at 4. Hit OK. You can reduce opacity in the layers panel if needed.
03 Boost the colours
To boost the colours, hit the half moon at the bottom of the layers panel to add a Vibrance Adjustment layer. We increased Vibrance by 79 points. Next, add a Curves Adjustment layer and create a gentle S-curve to deepen the shadows and boost the highlights.
