This tutorial shows the steps required to flip a layer in Photoshop both horizontally and vertically.
We will be using the Lighthouse Royalty Free Stock Photo from Pexels for demonstration purpose. Open the downloaded image in Photoshop as shown in Fig 1.
The right side shows the Layers panel having Image layer in locked position. Double click the layer to unlock it. A confirmation dialog will be displayed as shown in Fig 2. Provide a name to the layer and press Ok Button to unlock the layer.
Click on the Edit Option Button on the Top Menu Bar, hover on Transform and click on Flip Horizontal Option as shown in Fig 3.
The flip horizontal option flips the image horizontally as shown in Fig 4.
Similar to horizontal flip, click on the Edit Option Button on the Top Menu Bar, hover on Transform and click on Flip Vertical Option. The vertically flipped image is shown in Fig 5.
This is how we can flip an layer both horizontally and vertically.
