10.4: About Preview and rotated/mirrored images
Authored by: caesurae on Dec 07, '05 11:44:24AM
I haven't upgraded to Tiger yet, but I'm all too familiar with the Preview bug. Although...the same thing happens to me when using the Crop function. Many apps will display the "cropped" version in it's original, unedited state.

For a gui alternative to the command-line solutions mentioned above, try Goldberg X 2.5 [home page - more info], a free image viewer/editor with support for QuickTime's many built in functions/filter effects.

Mirroring an image using PhotoShop CS2
Authored by: rotaiv on Dec 07, '05 12:52:00PM

To mirror an image using Photoshop CS2, perform the following:

Press CMD+T or select "Edit -> Free Transform"

Change the for "W:" (Width) to -100% to flip vertically or change "H:" (Height) to -100% to flip horizontally.

You can also use the image "handles" to click and drag from right to left (or vice versa) until the "W:" is -100%.

Why not use Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal or Image > Rotate Canvas > Flip Canvas Horizontal?
