From PSP 14, 15 AND 16 there is no option for Image - Mirror - Mirror Horizontal ( Image - Mirror in previous PSP Versions)     & 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
