Not certain if you are doing a frozen buttercream transfer or if you are doing a printed edible image. If it's the FBT, then the instructions posted before are ok.

If it's the edible image, you print it, pop it in the refrigerator for a bit and it tends to release from the paper. You do not need to print it in reverse.

Hope this helps.

THANKS EVERYONE FOR ALL YOUR HELP. YES ITS AN EDIBLE IMAGE. BEFORE I READ THE POST, I TOOK THE IMAGE AND WENT TO SAMS STORE - TO THE BAKERY - THEY SHOWED ME HOW TO DO IT - YES THEY POP IT IN THE FREEZER FOR A FEWW SECONDS AND IT RELEASES FROM THE PAPER - FANTASTIC! I TOOK IT HOME - I POPPED IT IN MY FREEZER AND GUESS WHAT? ITS BEEN THERE FOR ALMOST 1/2 AND HOUR AND I JUST CAN'T RELEASE IT FROM THE DAMN PAPER- I DONT HAVE A SAMS CLUB FREEZER!

GUESS I WILL HAVE TO GLUE THE PAPER COPY I DID ONTO THE CAKE.

ANYWAY THANKS FOR ALL YOUR HELP
