No 'Mirror image' checkbox in Advance tab for c4680

Hi! I've just bought a new hp Photosmart c4680 printer  for iron-on Transfers as my previous printer  packed up. After some deliberating and research I settled on this one as it catered for the transfers and it was a make I haven't used before. I know what to do and how to do it, but, I can't cos what it tells me to do is not available ; cl 'Advance' tab, in the 'Features' area select the' Mirror Image' checkbox. There are 2 boxes, 1- 'Enable maximum DPI setting'. 2- 'Enable HP Real Life Technologies'. No MIRROR IMAGE ! Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks. Ako.

Re: No 'Mirror image' checkbox in Advance tab for c4680

Sorry I been wrapped up in myself lately. WindowsXP. I've been to and froing emails with HP sevices and their final answer is below.

"Thank you for writing to HP Customer Care.

I would like to inform you that the printer supports iron on transfer however the driver does not have the feature of mirroring the image hence we suggested you to use third party software called Microsoft Office Picture Manager to mirror the image." Being an OAP that is not an option for me.


I've since had them ring me today from( India?)wherever and suggested I use Microsoft Word. I had previously rang Braintree HP Customer Care and spoke to a technician who, after deliberating with another Tech: told me " the Mirror Image is no longer necessary, just select Iron-onTransfer paper and print normally". Does'nt work.  PICASA forum suggests :- highlight pic click >Ctrl-Shift-H to flip horizontal, and Ctrl-shift-V for vertical flip. Worked for some but not for me.

I've got over mine by visiting '' chose 'free downloads' 'mirror image' search and chose 'Easyimage' sorted.

Thanks for taking time out for me, hope this might help someone like me who's getting fed up with the problem. ako
