Am I just completely missing something or can this not be done unless you make a card or something?? I can see how to rotate and adjust how the picture looks but can't suss out how to simply create a flipped or mirror image of a photo...
Anyone got any quick tips to share?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.2)

    Export it and use preview ( or some other photo editor) - iPhoto does not offer this feature

    You can suggest to Apple - iPhoto menu ==> provide iPhoto feedback

    You can't do this in iPhoto.

    In order of price here are some suggestions:

    Preview, already on your Mac.

    Seashore (free)
    _[The Gimp|http://www.gimp.org/macintosh>_ also free
    Graphic Coverter ($45 approx)
    Acorn ($50 approx)
    [Pixelmator|http://www.pixelmator.com> ($60 approx.)
    Photoshop Elements ($75 approx)

    There are many, many other options. Search on MacUpdate.

    You can set Photoshop (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 Photoshop 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.
