Here is how I do it, but I'm sure there is other ways to do it.
First, choose your picture and add a border or a frame to it if you want.
1) Then you want to change it's perspective by clicking on effects, geometrics effects, perspective horizontal.
2) Here are the setting I used but I'm sure you can play around with it.
3) Then you want to duplicate that layer:
4) Flip that layer:
5) You then wnat to rotate that layer using raster deform tool so that the two pictures line up as in the picture below. Then, you want to change the mode of the raster deform tool to free (you might want to try perspective also, but I prefer free).
6) Save your work first so you can go back to it. Then, play around with the little handles until you get the result you like. It's a tricky at first but just keep playing at it. It should look like this:
7) Lower the opacity of the reflected layer. Then, using your favorite tool (I like the lasso for this), change the feather to 30 and select the bottom part of the picture. Hit delete.
8) Now we are going to add a drop shadow. You can use your own settings or mine. Make sure you click in the box next to 'shadow on new layer'.
9) Now you will have your duplicated layer with the reflection and it's shadown on a different layer. Those two layers are locked together. Unlock them by clicking on the little links beside your layers until it says 0.
10) Select your shadow layer. Select your raster deform tool and make sure the mode is still at free. Now play around with the little handles like we did before for the reflection until you get a result similar to this:
You can also apply a gaugassian blur to the shadow layer if you want.
Voilŕ! Feel free to share yours!
Let me know if the instructions aren't clear or complete.
Basically followed the original tutorial for PSP, but with a few variations. Used the Edit > Transform > Perspective command on the photo layer, then the Edit > Transform > Distort command on the reflection layer.
The problems I came across where that if you add a stroke to the reflection layer, when you do the feathered selection and delete it, it comes out weirdly dark. So, I had to select the reflected photo, expand the selection to the same number of pixels as the stroke on the photo, then do a colour fill on a separate layer. Then perform the same actions to that (delete selection and reduce opacity) as I did to the actual reflection layer.
For the shadow layer, I added the drop shadow to the photo then right clicked on the little f on the layer palette and selected 'create layers', then performed the Edit > Transform > Distort command.
