Thread: Mirroring/Flipping horizontally or vert reference images and layers - Is it possible?

  1. Exclamation Mirroring/Flipping horizontally or vert reference images and layers - Is it possible?

    Is it possible to flip/mirror a reference image or a drawing selection horizontally or vertically? This is easily accomplished in Corel Painter or Photoshop, but I'd like to be able to do this in ArRage 4. I haven't found such an option. I thought the transform tool should be able to do this but doesn't. I want to be able to manipulate my references. Thanks for any suggestions.

    You currently cannot flip a reference image.

    You can flip a selected part of the drawing.

    Press H for flipping horizontally and V for flipping vertically

    You can also do this with unselected paintings, to get a temporary preview/check the mirror image.

    I guess it is pretty hidden! It has been around since ArtRage 2, so I guess we forgot it's not obvious.

    You can browse through (and change) all the keyboard shortcuts by going to Edit > Set Keyboard Shortcuts . There are some interesting ones in there, so it's worth doing.

    There is also the right click method. If you make a selection and then click on it with the Transform tool (or use Edit > Transform Layer Contents), you can then right click over the Transformation rig, which will open a menu with a number of options to select from (See screen shot below). This method can also be used in flipping the stencils and non-flattened stickers. The manual for ArtRage 4 mentions the right click menu, but seems to neglect mentioning the features of the menu specifically. At least for normal transformations. It does bring up the flipping option when it comes to the same procedure with the stencils.

    Click image for larger version.

    Nothing is easy to the unwilling.
