printing mirror images on half the print - rchaakenson - Aug 18, 2014

I have a friend who is very gifted in abstract paintings. He asks if I could digitalize and print his images making some arbitrary line across the image for the mirror image to start. Experimenting with an actual mirror on a print, the effect is amazing. Does anyone know of a computer program that can do this?

Any graphics program such as Photo Shop, Paint Shop Pro or Gimp (which is free)
can do this.
It needs to be copied, flipped or mirror imaged and layered

Hi. No problem here and no expensive software needed. Your already have what is required on your computer. Word.
Just copy and paste two copies of the print on one page of word.
Click on one copy to show the guideline dots on the side of the print.
Click onto the dot and drag across until it is the same size as the original.
Then just slide the two together.
Hey presto - your mirror image.
Simples.
