Hi all,

I was wondering what is the easiest way to get a mirror image for a FBCT? Does a copier do the trick or does anyone know if the Microsoft Word has a way to do it. I can scan the image into the computer.

Thanks for any info.

Vicki, paste the picture into a Word document and go to file and press print. Then once at the printing screen, go to the properties button. Under properties, look for an advanced setting button or something of that sort for your printer. Under the advanced settings mine has a mirror image button that I can click to "on". I usually don't use Word. I have a Print Shop program on my computer and it is easier to use with pictures. I can click print and then click on print in transfer design mode. Much easier for me.

Hi Vicki,

You can do it in Paint. Open the image in paint and then go to Image, Flip/Rotate..., You can flip it on the horizontal or vertical axis.

I tried the paint and it made it huge. I could not find out how to make it normal size. Not sure why it blew it up so big when i scanned it.

Thanks for the help, though.

You can change the size of the image by clicking on "Image" and then "resize/skew" in the Paint screen. If you enter 50 horizontal and 50 vertical it will reduce the image size by 50%.
