Easy Reflections, a script for images reflections

By: OSH Editorial    In: Images PHP

Karma - Responsive bootstrapped webapp

Easy Reflections is a PHP script that takes an image and then creates a reflection of it. A ‘reflection’ being in the Apple OSX style as seen in iTunes. This is also known as a ‘wet floor’.

Hello you, if you are new here, you might want to subscribe to our RSS feed for updates on this article and our site.


There are two versions of Easy Reflections and both are maintained independantly of each other. Version 3 contains advanced features only suitable for modern browsers.

Both versions support creating reflections from GIF, JPG or PNG source files. Both versions support image caching, variable heights and control over the fade levels used. The choice really is down to end-user compatibility.

Easy Reflections was written and tested with PHP 4.4.5 and PHP 5.2.3. It is fully compatible with E_ALL and Register Globals Off. It requires that PHP has GD extension 2.0.1+ loaded.

What I’d really like to see is a script like this that can do this with text, so we’ll have dynamically generated menu buttons with reflections.

Here’s some open source suggestions:
Greenshot – very useful tool for taking screenshots, allows you to automatically save to a file, and display a selection box when pressing the screenshot button so you can select which area to capture.

PHP Directory listing script – Does exactly as it’s name suggests, along with a build in flash player, mp3 player, icon generator and some other very cool stuff.

TiddlyWiki – This is kind of like a fully dynamic local wiki, you just double click any text to go into edit mode, and it works from a usb stick or web page. Everything on the page is editable, from the menu to the top gradient.
