• Reflection: How to create a mirror image in Photoshop and PSE

    January 2010 is coming to a close. It has been a month for both reflection on the past year and looking ahead to the coming months.

    Reflecting in Photoshop and Elements is easy to do. You can create a mirror image with just a few clicks.

    When you want to create a mirror image of a photo in PSE, select the photo layer and choose Image > Rotate > Flip Layer (Horizontal or Vertical).

    To flip an open photo in PS, choose Image > Rotate Canvas > Flip Canvas (Horizontal or Vertical.) If the photo is a layer on your digital project, select the photo layer and choose the command Edit > Transform > Flip (Horizontal or Vertical) instead.

    This comes in handy when you need your subject to face the opposite direction or you’d like to flip a scrapbooking element to make it fit on your page.
