Sadly Meta passed away November 2013. We miss her lovely personality and her beautiful tutorials!
I will still be translating her tutorials as a tribute to her, she told me she would love that and gave me permission to save them.Unfortunately the originals are no longer online

From PSP 14, 15 AND 16 there is no option for Image - Mirror & Image -  Flip There is a new option but this does not give the same result except when the tube/image covers the whole image from side to side There is a easy way to add the old Mirror and Flip options to the Image Menu I have written a tutorial you can find it HERE. From PSP 17 the option is back
