Task 4 How to Flip and Rotate an Image

You might want to reverse the orientation of an image for compositional or aesthetic reasons. This is relatively simple to do in Photoshop (provided that there is no text that would be reversed). In addition to reversing an image, you can rotate the entire image canvas, reorienting it to a new position. This is a common requirement for optimizing scans that were set up in the wrong direction. This process is similar to the Free Transform command discussed in Part 10, Task 6, “How to Transform Layers.” The main difference is that Free Transform operates on individual layers rather than the entire image (so that your text, on a separate layer, isn't affected).
