This image, I want to perspective-DISTORT the mirror so that the reflection looks more natural (this is for my SOTM entry) but I can't figure out how to do it.

I have Photoshop Elements 6, lunapic.com, and photobucket's editors at my disposal.

EDIT: I AM ASKING HOW TO DO THIS, NOT FOR SOMEONE TO DO IT FOR ME. (I would never ask someone to do it for me for a contest!)

I'm sorry, but I dont think its kinda appropriate to delegate your work to someone else so you could compete in the contest.. My best advice for you is to ask in the SotM submission thread for a collaboration and restart over.

I don't know; SOTM is a showcase of all the skills you have, not skills you can obtain while participating.

I mean, every technique needs to be practiced over time, perfected. If this would be your first time doing a distortion effect, won't it be better to rather not use it for a competition just yet? Dunno, but then again, that's just my opinion.

Anyway, most artists use either GIMP or Photoshop here, so there is a slight chance you won't get the answer you seek in time.

Yeah, sorry to maybe burst your hopes for trying to find said tool, but Larthak is right. I myself use Gimp, and there is such a tool on my program. However, it is when it's manipulating a single layer, not the image as a whole. I was thinking that since Gimp had it, Photoshop, a more advanced program, would have had it also (it probably does, possibly under a different name)... I apologize if my suggestion to use said tool lead to an effort to find it, and thus result in a waste of time. I recommend re-opening the file and play around with the layer the mirror is on. If the original image has already been flattened, then there's nothing more I can say that try to start from scratch...

@ Sworn to Believe I would suggest you insted of Distorting the reflection, to blur ir. In Photoshop Element 7 ( I know you got PE6 but it's probably at the same place), it's on the ''Layer'' selection.

I don't understand the question. You mean like this?



Ctrl+T > Mesh

Or by perspective distort do you mean vanishing point?

dunno. I'm a little new to this.
someone said something about distorting the mirror itself to make it look more realistic or true or whatever?

I'm trying to work with it.

You'd be very hard pressed to get a decent vector without the pen tool. You could try using the 'magic wand' tool, although I'm not sure if that version of Photoshop it. If it does; then I can't see it being advanced enough for it to produce a decent render/vector.

I just remembered this thread!
Not sure if it belongs here as it's more of a guide than tutorial...but anyways...
Here's a guide to the basics of signature making(helps if you use GIMP instead of PS):

Layer Mask? Zooming in usually produces lots of artifacts when you zoom back out. I suggest using shift+clicks as much as possible to avoid creating rough edges. You can also press / to toggle quick mask view to get rid of those invisible bits here and there.

Question is, I do not know if PSE includes Layer Mask .. if it is, then yes, layer mask is much better

I'll take a look at GIMP and perhaps use it alongside PSE.
PSE does indeed have a layer mask tool (I'm pretty sure), so I'll try that.

In response to Star-Wing's question as to how I got this...



This small little walk through will be attempt to explain how I was able to make the effects around it. For anyone else curious, feel free to take a look as well. Please note that I used Gimp for this project, however I will do my best to try and also explain and pointing out other tools that perform similar functions as mine... Also note that this is my first time doing a tutorial, so I'm sorry if I'm a bit confusing or hard to understand...

Spoiler for What I did...:


Hope I was able to answer your question, Star-Wing. And to anyone else, I hope this was at least remotely useful in attempting to try out a new styling effect.
