    Step 3: Go to Layer > New > Layer Via Copy, or simply hit Ctrl+J

    Step 4: With the new layer created, use the move tool (V key) and nudge the new layer down with the arrow keys to ensure a perfect vertical drop.

    Window Tinting:

    Step 3: With the Bucket tool (G) and the following settings, fill the selected reigion traced by the lasso tool with black.

    Step 4: Go to the layers Window, which looks simular to the layers window shown in the picture and lower the Opacity level as you desire. The lower the setting, the lighter the tint.

    which lines at the top? the background shouldnt be distorted after u nudge. if theres distortion, make a copy of the top portion, about 10 pixels, and nudge into position.

    After tinting the windows, the shiny reflection dissapears. but otherwise it looks good.


    You should make a tutorial on lowering cars that arn't perfectly sideways and flat on the ground, like from a high front right point of view, where all the tires arnt at the same position.
