Flip an image in Lightroom

Updated: Feb 21

A little known detail in Lightroom is that it is possible and easy to flip an image both horizontal and vertical or left to right-and it only takes a couple of clicks,

And here is how we do it

Step one, while in the crop tool, right click within the image and scroll down to the transform box-click to open up the transform options

Step two chose options and click again, in this example I have clicked flip horizontal

The reasons for doing this are purely aesthetic, but the directions that leading lines follow-the water in this case, can help draw viewers eyes into the picture
