    Hey all, do you guys know where I could get some backgrounds that Apple use in their marketing? Or any sort of site that mimmic the stuff they do that you can download.

    Like this pic here, I wanted a background similar to this:

    Thanks all.

    True enough.

    Okay, next question - how do you create that reflection of the MBP in photoshop CS3?

    To reflect an object,
    1. Copy the layer
    2. edit>transform>flip vertical
    3. drag to be under the original object
    4. create a mask, use a gradient to make the object smoothly transition from full opacity to transparent.

    Don't forget, chaosdude78's tutorial works best when you're looking at an object from the front. In the case of the Apple laptop above, which is seen at an angle, flipping it vertically to create a reflection will not look realistic. I see poorly-done reflections on BestBuy's Sunday paper all the time.
