    Does anyone know if there is a Photoshop technique or plugin to create a curved reflection? Imagine a soda can on a reflective surface. If I duplicate the layer and flip it vertically to create a reflection, the curved top and bottom are curving the wrong way. The reflections curve will be curving in the same direction of the actual object.

    The image should have the 'L' on the same side if it's supposed to be a reflection Image > Image Rotation > Flip horizontal.

    Oops. Forgot to add, play with the free transform option under the Edit tab.

    You can curve the top and bottom edges with the warp tool. Getting the reflected label
    to match takes a bit more. You have to copy and paste parts, flip them vertically, align
    them on the bottom, and then blend them in with a mask. This is quick and dirty
    (the picture on the reflected label is still distorted). Getting all the parts right would take
    awhile, but it could be done.
