With photoshop you can do as 2 methods belows :

1. Flipping the Entire Canvas

Open a the image you need to flip. This process will flip the entire image. Your canvas is simply everything you see inside the dark-gray border surrounding the image in Photoshop.

Flip an Image 1
Flip an image horizontally through the “Image” menu. This flips the image across an imaginary line running from the top of the canvas to the bottom. Go to Image → Image Rotation → Flip Canvas Horizontal.
Flip an Image 2
Flip an image vertically through the “Image” menu. This flips the image across an imaginary line running from the left of the canvas to the right. Go to Image → Image Rotation → Flip Canvas Vertical.

Note that the wording may be slightly different for different versions of Photoshop. For example, older versions have “Rotate,” not “Image Rotation.” Still, the text is close enough that it shouldn’t cause major confusion.If you’re stuck, click “Help” from the top bar and type in “Flip.” It should bring you right towards the option you need.

2. Flipping Individual Elements

Select the layer you want to flip. You can either flip the entire canvas or individual layers, so isolate whatever you wanted to flip into its own layer. If it already is, simply select the layer in the layers panel.

Enter “Free-Transform Mode” to manipulate the image. This puts a box around the element that allows you to rotate, stretch, shrink, and twist the image. To get to free transform, you can:

  • Select “Edit” from the top bar, then “Free Transform.”
  • With the right layer selected, press Ctrl+T for PCs or Cmd+T

  • Horizontal flips switch the right and left side of the image.
  • Vertical flips switch the top and bottom of the image.
Hit “Enter” to make the free transformation stay. Once you’re happy with the transformation, you can hit enter to set the image how you’ve edited it. You can also double-click inside the transformation box to end it.
