How To Flip Photos

When working with design, flipping an image is sometimes required. Flipping an image can strengthen the compositional structure, improve flow, or improve design creativity in general and add artistic polish. Whether you're flipping an entire picture or just a small element of it, PaintShop Pro makes the process a breeze. Keep reading the guide below to learn how to flip a photo and improve your creative with PaintShop Pro.

You can flip or mirror an image so that the left side becomes the right side or the top becomes the bottom. When you choose Flip, layers or selections are flipped in position. When you choose Mirror, layers or selections are flipped along their horizontal (left to right) or vertical (top to bottom) axis.

2. Apply Flip from Image menu
