Flip images in a few simple clicks

Spent hours trying to nail the perfect shot but not quite happy with how it turned out? Simply flip the image to make it more interesting. Flip vertically to create an upside-down image that will spice up your design. Or flip the image horizontally to achieve a mirror effect. Upload your photo on Canva, and give it a go.

Edits as minor as a mirror flip on an image don’t have to be a complicated affair—and we make sure it stays that way.

Tell a story with flip imaging

Flipping images online isn’t just about making quick edits. It’s also a way to add graphic pizzaz to your presentations, newsletters, and marketing campaigns. After all, a simple flip can better express a photo’s intended story. Flip an image horizontally to place the photo elements left to right. This creates a natural flow to direct the viewer’s eyes. Looking for something more dramatic and surreal? Flip an image vertically to draw in viewers and leave them searching for clues.
