This tutorial is a personal creation of Sweety and it is prohibited to copy or distribute it on the net (forums, groupes.. etc), or to use it on commercials sites.
This tutorial was created and translated with Corel12, but can also be made using other versions of PSP.
Since version PSP X4, Image>Mirror was replaced with Image>Flip Horizontal,
and Image>Flip with Image>Flip Vertical, there are some variables.
In versions X5 and X6, the functions have been improved by making available the Objects menu.
In the latest version X7 command Image>Mirror and Image>Flip returned, but with new differences.
