Selfies have been all the rage this decade.

But did you know that there are iconic mirror selfies going back more than half a century ?

Mirror selfies can make for edgy, artistic shots, but should be done with some caution: if you want any letters or symbols to appear as they should in a mirror-taken self portrait, you'll need to flip the image before you publish it.

Fortunately, Photoshop CC 2020 makes it easy to create a mirror image of your mirror pics, so that your selfies get their message across accurately.

Here are three simple steps to do that:

How to flip an image in Photoshop

1. Open Photoshop CC 2020 and select "Open" and then select the file you want to flip.

3. Now, you'll want to save your flipped image. Go back to "File," then "Save As" and choose the same name to overwrite the non-flipped version if you don't need it anymore, or choose a new name to have a version of both your flipped and non-flipped photos.
