Reversing Images

I'm just going through all my comments for the last while...

I do read them as I get them however I like to keep them in my inbox so I can give all of you a return visit.

Sue asked me (and I know someone else has as well) how did I reverse the chart I used in Chrisanne's RR? Well it wasn't really that hard, I used my scanner to scan the chart onto my computer. That automatically opened the HP software (HP Phtosmart Essential) and I just told it I wanted a mirror image... and whoila! I had a reverse of the chart... and I printed it out.

So if you have a scanner take a good look at the software that came with it you may be able to do the same!

The irises are so pretty. Sorry but your guess is close but not 100% correct...and it isn't for you. Maybe the next mystery project. Again, thanks for the laugh-here's a tissue for your sniffles! :)

Thanks for the help on the reversing. I do have a scanner/printer, and I have HP something or other on it that I use when I work with my pictures from my digital camera. I'll check and see if I can find the mirror option.

btw, before I had a scanner, I took patterns to the local copy center. they will reverse your image - like kinko or staples.
