in photoshop, there is a plastic wrap effect (it's kinda lame but for beginners it works)

Also there are effects suites/addons that you can get for photoshop that do stuff like that.

EyeCandy
Kai Power Tools
Etc...

Hi - I'm not real sure what effect you're after, but I think you may be talking about something like raytracing ... that's one of those things that you play around with several times and you'll get the look you want ... there's a decent tutorial for it here:

HTH :)

Well, Oracle - I am back in town *again* ... and what I have discovered is there is no substitute when it comes to PhotoShop ... I have FW 3 & 4 and never really used them much simply because I was familiar with Adobe ~ looks like it will continue on that way ... sorry i coudln't be more help :(

In Fireworks, you can use gradient fills of some sort, place them in a layer above the one you want the effect on and reduce alpha value... I think you could get some kind of that effect that way... experiment a little, Fireworks is a great program!

Maybe I'm just a 'tard, hun - but I'm not exactly sure which "shining papers" you're talkin' about ... I've hit that link 50 times and I'm still not sure ... perhaps if you can be a little more specific for me (or post an image) I can be of more help :D

Just get Photoshop 6 and use the filters for that it is very very easy.  You can use different actions to create miirors in Photoshop 6.  Use photoshop it is the best :cool:
