    "Not reported."

    Just a request made to have it merged with Cooljc's other thread on the same subject.

    First try resizing the image to say 256 x 192 pixels
    To do this, open the image in irfanview, go to the toolbar menu, click Image>resize/resample>set new size.

    Save the new image somewhere handy then go back to the Image toolbar and have a play with the vertical & horizontal flip tools which you can use to make mirror images of your original image.

    When you have made a mirror image look in the image toolbar for the "create panorama image" tool which you can use to stitch the images back together.

    It might take you a little while to get used to how things work but just have a play with above mentioned tools and you will soon get the idea.

    Feel free to come back if you need more help

    Probably best to flip rather than rotate to make it appear seamless.

    When you get a bit of time have a bit of play with Irfanview as it is a lot more functional than paint. You might also like to download PSP7 from here: http://www.com-puterworks.com/Free_Downloads.htm for some more advanced work. It has quite a learning curve but is worth it and you can pick up a bit at a time.
