This effect can be used to add a body of water to an image.
Before you adjust the parameters for this effect, use the Move tool to set the height of the expected horizon.
Below the horizon will be water, and above it, the remainder of the image. The horizon can be moved vertically up or down to any level.
Adjust the parameters for the Water effect. The parameters for this effect are divided in two tabs: Waves and Glare.
Waves Tab. Under this tab are parameters which define the basic characteristics of water.
Glare Tab. If the original photo has a light source, then when you add water light should be reflected in it, creating a glare. The parameters under this tab define the characteristics of the solar glare.
Note: If the value of the parameter is 0, there is no glare.
These parameters affect the location of the glare on the water:
Note: These parameters only have an effect if Brightness for a glare is not set to zero.
If you wish to add a glare, pay attention to the lighting as well as the time of day in the photograph. As we know, the sun is lower in the sky during the morning and evening than during the day.
Therefore, for photographs taken during the day, the glare should be closer to the camera (a lower value for Vertical Shift), and for one shot in the morning or evening, closer to the horizon (a higher value for Vertical Shift).
Similarly, the value for Horizontal Shift can be changed, depending on the position of the light source in the original photograph.
