💡Feature Idea: Flip and mirror images

edited September 2021 in Feature Ideas

I would like to be able to flip and mirror images, e.g. if I have an image of a bus and that's driving from left to right, but I needed the same image to move into the other direction, I would like to be able to flip/mirror its direction. Just that :-)

    @manuel ,

    Thank you for the feature idea! Could you explain in a bit more detail how you would expect this to work?

    You're welcome, @drewan!

  • I really like this option when you get a chance - it is often an issue with the arrow icons/stock images that Mural currently offers - the curved arrows cannot be rotated to point the right way because the curves then curve the wrong way, but there is no way to flip to make the arrows point the right way. Another alternative would be to add mirrored versions of curved arrows to the icons list.

  • I missed this feature, too. My use case was when I was gathering reference images of tattoos for an artist; since the tattoo was to appear on a left elbow, and some images had it on a right elbow, it would have been convenient to quickly mirror these images instead of loading them in an image editor to do the transformation.

    Conversely, if we ever decided that the tattoo should appear on the right, we could just flip all the images directly in Mural.

  • Yes, we need to be able to mirror. I'm surprised this function doesn't exist.

  • Please add this.

  • Hello, this will be extremely useful (to be able to mirror BOTH icons and images). Adding this will certainly make MURAL a better tool.

  • Please add vertical and horizontal flipping to icons.

  • I second this! Right-click options for horz/vert flipping for both images and icons would be great. After about a month of daily use, this is the only missing feature I would've assumed a visual tool like Mural to have. (Love the app!)
