From PSP 14 and higher 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 From PSP 17 the option is back

  • Set your Foregroundcolor to #e7e5f3

  • Set your Backgroundcolor to #52276f
