Thanks Estela for your invitation to translate your tutorials into english
This tutorial was created with PSP2022 and translated with Psp17, but it 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.
See my schedule here
This tutorial is an update of the 2018 tutorial, translated into french
