Wallpaper reflection effect?

Postby p10 » Fri Oct 23, 2009 6:37 pm

Does anyone know if there is a way to make the wallpaper picture look like this? Either by using compiz or something...


What I am looking for is the illusion that the picture is placed slightly behind the desktop surface, creating a reflection in a surface that appears to disappear into the screen...
The image is from a mandriva screensaver that creates this effect on the images it displays.

You could probably go look for some GIMP tutorials or something, unless some knowledgeable artist type comes by and knows off the top of their head.
