How to flip an image or graphic in Canva


Today, I would like to acknowledge the Yuggera people as the Traditional Owners of the beautiful land I am standing on today. From the mountains to the river, I open my heart and my eyes as I walk this land, listening, learning and caring for Country. I want to extend this respect to Elders; past, present and emerging and to all First Nations peoples reading this post today. We are all remembered here.

As you know, each blog post is based on my own experiences, opinions, and what I have been taught, and does not represent all First Nations peoples or Communities. Please remember that, connecting with your local First Nations Community is always the most respectful way for you to embed First Nations content specific to your area.

Once you can see that your image or graphic is selected (with a purple box around it), then you want to go up to the 'Flip' button at the top left of the page. You're going to click that button and then a small menu is going to drop down underneath the 'Flip' button.

After this, you have two choices, you can either:

- Select flip horizontal

- Select flip vertical

Choose whichever one you need dependent upon what you need your picture to look like on your design.

If you're not too sure about which one to use, don't worry too much, just select one and if you don't like the way your image your graphic looks, then just click that button again and it will return your image or graphic back to the way it was. You can then try the other button giving you the opportunity to see how the other flip button looks.
