First im­pres­sions

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.
