Mirror image printing



HP Printers - Printing Photos (Windows) > Scroll down > FAQ Section:

How do I create a mirror or reverse version of a photo?


Edits - Corrected the presentation order of the first set of examples.



If you are running a recent version of Windows, you can use Paint


  • Open the Image.jpg file in Paint
  • Click Image > Rotate > Flip Horizontal
  • Save the flipped image under a new name
  • Print the new image






and / or


Irfanview provides a free program that can be used for a variety of scan and print tasks, including the “Mirror” or horizontal flip function.


  • Create a Restore Point (optional, recommended)
  • Download the appropriate version (32bit or 64bit) of the program from the Website and install the program
  • Additional information at the website, including: FAQ


Once installed, open the software > tab Help


Example help entry:

Vertical/Horizontal Flip

  • Click on the Image Menu, then Vertical Flip. The image will turn upside-down. The left/right orientation will stay the same.
  • Click on the Image Menu, then Horizontal Flip. The image will turn side-to-side, as in a mirror.


Note: The effect can be used on a smaller portion (rectangle selection) of an image, as well as the entire image.
