Some are well crafted and worthy. Others give you a feature or two from a vastly more expensive Mac app. Like those reflections you see at the bottom of images and photos. Like those? There’s a Mac app for that.
299 Reflections, 1-cent Each
Those attractive and often overused reflections show up on icons, products, photos, and other images. They’re everywhere and now they’re easier to create.
I’m not so sure we should make easier than which is already a commodity item and overused, but, nevertheless, there’s an app called– wait for it; here it comes– Reflection.
You’re not going to spend as much as you would at Starbucks for Reflection. If it works for you, you’l only need 299 reflections on your images to get the per-reflection cost down to a penny each.
How it works is easy. Drag an image or photo onto the Drag Image Here space in Reflection. Presto. Change, oh? There’s a reflection.
The tools on the left sidebar make it easy to modify the image and reflection (click on the images for a larger, pop up view).
You can adjust how much reflection you want, and add a perspective to the image.
The slider tools make it easy, but you can add numbers to be even more precise.
Sorry, no preset saving for you. That would be a great enhancement for future versions.
Regardless, other options make for some attractive reflections. Lift the image above the reflection. Skew the image this way or that way for effect.
Change the opacity of the image. Even change the background color to match the image. Once you’ve created your reflective masterpiece, save the image with an export (image can be used in other Mac graphic apps).
Reflection is mostly self explanatory, and despite a few bugs here and there, useful– but it’s really doing only what it says it will do. Add a reflection to an image.
299 images later and those reflections are only a penny each.
