The Corel Corporation introduced Corel Draw as a photo editing program to help fix flaws in your images. The program allows you to reverse images, enhance images and create projects. It may be necessary to reverse an image to fit it into your project. In Corel, this is referred to as "mirroring" the image.
Things You'll Need
- Corel Draw
- Image to reverse
Double-click the Corel Draw icon on your desktop to open the program or select the Corel Draw program from your Start menu.
Create a new document by selecting "File" and then choosing "New" from the drop-down menu. The keyboard shortcut is "Control" plus the "N" key. You may also open an existing file by selecting "File" and then "Open." The keyboard shortcut is "Control" plus the "O" key.
Import the image that you would like to flip. Select "File" and choose "Import" from the drop-down menu. The keyboard shortcut is "Control" plus the "I" key. This will open a pop-up window for the contents on your computer. Locate the file you wish to mirror. Click on the image and click the "Import" button at the bottom of the pop-up window.
Click-and-drag the image to the Corel page or press "Enter" to center the object to the page. Select the image by clicking on it once you have it placed.
Reverse the image by selecting the "Mirror Horizontally" button on the bottom center of the toolbar. If you hold your cursor over the toolbar, it will tell the functions of the buttons. You can then save the reversed image by selecting "File" and then "Save As" from the drop-down menu. A new window will pop up allowing you to choose where to save the file. Type in the file name and select "Save."
