Photo Reflect

Add Reflections to Photos

 

 

The free iOS app Photo Reflect is available in the App Store.

 

 

System Requirements:

iOS 8 or greater.

 

Its Mac companion, PhotoReflector, is available on the Mac App Store.

 

 

 

 

The gallery is a collection of annotated screenshots, illustrating the app in use.


Photo Reflect functions primarily in one view. Open images into the view using the camera roll button at the top.

 

Once your photo is loaded, it is reflected, and then you use the parameter tab bar at the bottom of the view to configure the attributes of the reflection. There are seven attributes:

 

Width: stretches the reflection's top.
Height: stretches the depth of the reflection.
Offset: displaces the reflection from the base of the photo.
Start: displaces the point from which the reflection begins.
Rate: speed at which the reflection fades out from the start.
Alpha: the overall transparency of the reflection.
Warp: alters the dimensions to simulate viewing sideways.

 

Use the "tips" at the bottom of the view to help you get started.


How it works

 

1) Tap camera roll button top center to load photos. This opens the photo browser. Select you photo and then, using the current settings, the chosen photo is displayed with a reflection adjoined to its bottom.

 

 

2) Tap tab bar items at view bottom to specify current attribute you want to set. Note that the slider's label and value range changes to match the current attribute:

 

 

3) After a selction is made use the slider to alter its value. Values are saved. You can restore values to factory defaults using the reset button in the top left of the view.

 


4) The main view is just a preview of the actual reflection, it is scaled down to just fit the view. This makes the display more responsive as you change the values of the current attribute.

 

To vew the reflection full size, double tap the image in the view. A new view will open that enables you to zoom in on the actual reflected image.

 

Note: due to the limitations of mobile devices the result will often not preserve the actual size of the input image. To achieve that level of performace try the Mac app version, PhotoReflector.

 


5) To save the relected image use the export button in the top right corner of the view.

 

As with viewing, due to the limitations of mobile devices the result will often not preserve the actual size of the input image. To achieve that level of performace try the Mac app version, PhotoReflector.

 


Enjoy!
