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

Used Colors

     
#000000 #ffffff #e816ee #35d7fe #2938d4      

Note: When working with your own colors, play with the Blend Mode and/or Opacity at your own discretion
