    You can't flip images in iPhoto. You can use an external editor for the job:

    You can set Image Well (or any image editor) as an external editor in iPhoto. (Preferences -> General -> Edit Photo: Choose from the Drop Down Menu.) This way, when you double click a pic to edit in iPhoto it will open automatically in Image Well or your Image Editor, and when you save it it's sent back to iPhoto automatically. This is the only way that edits made in another application will be displayed in iPhoto.

    Some external editors that can do that for you are: Xee (free), Paintbrush 2.0.1 (free) and GraphicConverter. Each of these can be set to be used from within iPhoto.

    Using 2 Image Editors in iPhoto
    If you want to use both iPhoto's editing mode and a 3rd party editor without having to go back and forth to the Preference pane, once you've selected the 3rd party editor as your editor of choice, reset the Preferences back to "Open in main window". Then when you Control-click on an image, you can select "Edit in external editor" in the Contextual menu to edit in your selected editor.
