Do you need to flip/mirror an image in and place it in Google docs but you are not very handy with advanced image-editing tools like Photoshop?
Well, worry not because Google Docs has features that can easily flip and reverse the sides of the images in the document.
You can flip an image vertically or horizontally depending on whether you want to show the right side on the left or the bottom of the image on the top.
Flipping images in Google Docs is an easy process, just follow the steps in the blog post to learn how you can achieve it.
Let’s dive in.
The quickest way to flip an image in Google Docs is by using the drawing tool, which is a built-in feature that can be found in the Insert menu.
This way you won’t need to switch between apps and waste time on different editing tools.
The flipping can be done within the document and here is how:
Your image is now flipped and what was on the right is now on the left side.
In case you want to rotate an image in Google Docs, that can be done as well following almost the same steps that we mentioned for flipping images.
Your image is now rotated and what was on top is now on at the bottom.
Additionally, users can also flip text using this method. However, once saved, the text will take an image format.
Meaning that you can’t retype what you wrote anymore.
