    THANK YOU for watching!

  2. Hi there! First, thank you for creating a very easy to follow YouTube tutorial for this! I am running into an issue. I am at the point where I am applying the displacement map and keep getting "Could not continue. Displacement maps must be 8 bits/pixel." I don't know what I am doing wrong. Any help is truly appreciated.

  3. Hi thanks for your tutorials they are great but in this one Ps won't let me save the distornion file because it says it's too big a file. I am following excatly each step you do.

  4. Thank very much. Because of your videos I understand Photoshop better and better and therefor I try out more and more things.😎

  5. Good ideas for the composition. But I think it would be more natural if the reflection is darker than the original. Physically it is not possible that the reflected picture is brighter than the original object.

  6. Great video. I managed to list step by step instructions for myself to use. A question: does the angle of the sun make a difference in the length of the water reflection or are they both always the same length?

  7. I kept waiting for you to darken the reflection as it would be in reality. Regardless, it's a well presented tutorial and I thank you. Stay safe, healthy and inside.
