Preparations:

In PSP 14 & 15 there is no option for Image - Mirror & Image -  Flip  There is a new option but this does not give the same result except when the tube/image covers the whole image from side to side  There is a easy way to add the old Mirror and Flip options to the Image Menu  I have written a tutorial you can find it HERE
