    I have a PDF file that I need to somehow mirror (I need the mirror image because I am printing this as an iron-on transfer). So far, the only thing I've heard is that Adobe Acrobat (the full version) has a mirror feature. I don't have that software, so I"m looking for another, easy option.

    I'll welcome any suggestions.

    Hi tomfromwisconsin, and welcome to TSG.

    You might want to see if the printer has any preferences option to do mirrored printing or has iron-on transfer as a paper type.

    Have you tried copying and pasting into a image editing program and doing a mirror there?

    If this PDF is "protected" then you should not be trying to use the image.

    I'm losing so much resolution on the copy and paste that it just isn't working.

    Can you post the PDF file so we can have a look at it?

    It is because the graphic is way to small. The PDF file is viewing it at 237%

    It's actually great on 8.5 by 11 paper. It's just facing the wrong way. Can anyone here flip this for me?

    Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Photoshop Elements that's cheaper they will also open .pdf files and you can flip or mirror and save them as .pdf and image.
