    How do I create a reflection or a silhouette of an object using Adobe Photoshop?

    Duplicate the layer with the object. Transform the object so it looks like a reflection and move it to the right position. (For a silhouette, select the object and then fill the selected space with black/color of your choice). For reflection, change the opacity so it looks faded. This step isn't necessary but it makes it seem more realistic. You can also use Gaussian Blur or other blur tools to make your reflection look more realistic.
    Thanks!
