I gave this a go and I think my results look alright.
What do you guys think of my results.
Cool, Wallace ! :geek:
(i was hoping you would give it a try ! ;) )

Did you add some bevel highlights and shadows ?

Yes, I added both beveled text layers,(Lowering their opacity) to the original displacement outcome.
I also added a 1 pixel border line of cyan around the text, blurred it slightly and lowered it's opacity to 60%.
I guess adding a cyan outer glow would have also worked.
Of course, as is plain to see, textured glass was added to the background image using G'MIC.
The Textured Glass could have been done before the displacement, but adding this was an afterthought for me.
Which still worked out surprisingly well.

I think i would like this with the text desaturated for more contrast, so that it looks like a glassdoor with the company's name on it.

I think it might depend on the background image used,
but that idea may certainly work well in most cases.

@Ella
i see, interesting approach !
maybe that solves my contrast problem


i always use a black layer set to 'Saturation' Mode for the black/white effect (with a layermask where i dont want it)
that minimizes the filesize (opposed to duplicating the image and desaturating it)
I duplicated the layer and did a desaturation on it, didn't use a black layer. Because I couldn't get a good result.
Probably I did something wrong. So I searched for an alternative...

Hopefully you can solve the contrast issue.

@Wallace I also like your outcome very much, the glass texture gives it a special look.

Don’t be afraid to start over. It’s a new chance to rebuild what you want.

Another try on this nice effect.
Esper, I don't understand what you said to me about I could place the final glass text on other point, even on other different picture. How? I mean that the glass reflect will belong to the original picture. Thanks a lot.

The main idea is not to glassify an image. The idea is to distort an image like a chromereflection does.
What matters in the end is the texture you get. In some cases people wont even recognize what the original image was.

Here is an example of a chrome effect:

Doesnt look like the inside of a bus, right ? But it looks like chrome !
