How to Get the Mirror Image of a Photo Using Microsoft Word

A mirror image is simply how a picture will look like when faced with the mirror; just like the reverse image of you while standing in front of the mirror (Reflection).

This tip is essential if you want to print a photo in a flipped perspective.

Luckily, this can be achieved with the use of Microsoft Word for Windows, With just a few clicks and you’ll get a mirror image of a selected picture.

There are three ways to flip an image on Microsoft Word depending on the version of Microsoft Word(Web or App) you're on, you can try any of the means that suit your preference.

First Method
