    Reflections are becoming very popular in web page graphics and TLC has a built in function (mirror) to produce this effect with text. You can also use this effect with graphics quite easily.

    Select the graphic element you wish to mirror
    Press <Ctrl>D to duplicate the element
    Do a vertical flip on the object
    Adjust Opacity to the desired level
    Apply a little blur

    Thats all there is to it, for an example of the effect click on the thumbnail below for a larger image. The text is mirrored using the built in TLC function and the globe reflection has been made as described above.
