You can download Reflection Generator from the website of PhotoFiltre software. The download is a portable application of very small size. You can extract the contents of the downloaded ZIP file and run Reflet.exe from there. The next thing you have to do is open an image file in this application. Reflection Generator supports all sorts of image files including very popular formats as well as some less used image formats.
In the Reflection Generator window, you can choose the number of images to be included in the animation. By default the number of images is 5.

The reflection type can be selected from perspective or regular types. When you are done, press the Enter key to view the animation. Pressing Enter again would halt the animation.
You can export the animation in various formats – AVI video file, GIF animation, BMP image frames or JPG image frames. Different options appear for different types of target files.
