I had a photo that I wanted to flip horizontally but didn’t have any fancy software on my computer to do so. I did have Windows Live Photo Gallery installed on my Windows Seven Laptop so I thought I would see if I could mirror a picture in windows live photo gallery. Sadly I was disappointed as Windows Live Photo Gallery would only rotate a picture and not create a mirror image.
Here is the photo I started with:
So I opened the photo in Windows Live Photo Gallery and looked through the options. I could not find an option to flip horizontally or create a mirror image.
The only option I could see was to rotate the image left or right. See what happens to the photo when I rotate it. That is definitely not what I wanted to see.
Then I opened the photo in the Microsoft paint program. By the way I am using Windows Seven, earlier versions of paint might not have this option.
Simply go to the rotate option and press the drop down arrow to see more menu items. Choose to Flip horizontal. Now my photo has been mirrored to face the other way.
Therefore there is no such tutorial showing how to mirror image a picture in windows live photo gallery. I am happy I had Ms Paint to solve my problem. Of course I still use Windows Live Photo Gallery for other amazing features such as photo fuse.
