2.6.3 Flipping

The active layer can be flipped around its vertical or horizontal axes with the Flip  tool from the Toolbox. A flip is performed by clicking on the Flip tool icon, represented by a two-way arrow in the Toolbox, and then by clicking in the image window. When in the image window, the mouse cursor appears as a two-way arrow that is oriented horizontally for horizontal flips and vertically for vertical flips.

As an example of using the Flip tool, Figure  2.22(a)

  
Figure 2.22: Using the Flip tool
Figure 2.22

shows an image of a pelican and Figure  2.22(b) shows the result after flipping the image horizontally. Note that the Horizontal radio button is selected in the Tool Options dialog, as shown in Figure  2.22(c). Selecting the Vertical radio button, as shown in Figure  2.22(e), produces the result in Figure  2.22(d).

Note that if the Horizontal radio button is selected in the Tool Options dialog the flip option can be momentarily toggled to Vertical by Control-clicking in the image window. Similarly, if the Vertical radio button is selected in the dialog, the option can be toggled to Horizontal option by Control-clicking in the image window.
