Hi , I'm new here!

I'm looking for a way to a reflective glass effect as seen in the attached pictures of the new 1 World Trade Center(Freedom Tower).

Is there an effect I can do to a picture of the sky to make it look like it's reflected in windows, kind of a 'chrome' look but not quite chrome.

I have a design of this building that I'm hoping I can layer an image of the reflective glass sky over.

Thanks in advance! :)

I'm pretty new to this myself, but I think you could achieve something like that with a clipping mask.
I believe the idea is you would select an area of the building you want the reflection on and overlay an image of the sky to give that reflective look.

Hello Crowe and welcome.

Chrome is only a reflection of it's surrounding environment. Please post the image that your working with so we can better help you with the effect.

In the mean time, take a look at these tutorials.

Read this thread. I made a video on how to use clipping masks to place reflections on mirrors.

Here's another on making mirrors an a mirroring effect.
