Hello, is it possible to flip images in DxO? Horizontal and/or vertical? Thanks

Do you mean Image>Rotation? Or, Ctrl/R, Ctrl/L using keyboard (Windows)?

Kind regards,

Do you mean as in a mirror image - this is not a circular rotation but flipping the image - horizontally so that left and right is reversed as though looking at a film negative from the opposite side.  Vertical flips the image so that top and bottom are reversed.

Someone throwing a ball right-handed would appear to be throwing left-handed in a flipped image.

I have never needed or looked for the function.  I cannot find it in Help or searching around the menus....

Yes, I'm talking about mirroring. Rotation is no problem. Thanks HGF

Like wyliec2, I have never even looked for this functionality in OP but I don't believe mirroring is available. Perhaps someone from the DxO Team will comment here.

Kind regards,

It seems there is no demand for this function. I'm using this very often if I'm getting the feeling to optimize an image by mirroring. Mostly I'm using vertical mirroring. Because is seems this is not implemented in DxO always I have to switch to a different tool. Would a great workflow improvement if I could do that in DxO as well.

kind regards

I am really surprised that it is necessary to explain what "flip" means. I'm also missing this funktion and I know that a lot of professional photographers use it to give an image another message. It is surprising that DxO does not have this function, because almost every free image viewer has built it in.

I have the same requirement. A very common handling at the time of the argentic.

I have done several times demanded. DxO answers that there is no users demand.

Guys, why don't you just use Irfan-View to flip either vertically or horizontally?

Because some people have the crazy idea, that a RAW image editor and developer can do that during it's workflow.

Easy in Lightroom or Photoshop.  It should be in DXO.  The routine would be easy to write, surely, just an arithmetic reversal of pixel position.  It could be in the crop or geometry palettes.

I agree that flipping would be a useful addition.

I agree, though the only images I would like to flip are 'selfies' made with the iPhone or with the camera of my iMac.

Yes, as Pieloe and Fotoguido mentioned, this is a function available in several other apps. Even it is easy to apply after the JPG processing.
In my practice, there are several tasks ( e.g. watermark, geo data adding, red eye removal - left not perfectly corrected in DoP, reduce the # of colors, text adding to the image, removing/adding some disturbing parts section, etc.), which are not available in DoP, but simple to do with another application. I used to add 1 star to such images and make the final corrections subsequently. The Irfanview is perfect addition in this respect.
