    How do I flip a single Layer?

    Hi,

    I was trying out one of the tutorials on the tutorial page. It was the "Creating Classy Glass Buttons" one. One of the steps says to flip the layer vertically. I can't quite figure out how to do that. It always wants to flip the whole thing. I'm using PS7.

    Thanks
    Nick

    Hi, I haven't looked at the tutorial you mentioned, but if all you want to do is flip a layer vertically you do this. Make sure you have the layer you want to flip selected then: Go to Edit>Transform>Flip Vertical.
    Is that what you were looking for?

    You most likely did Image/Rotate Canvas/Flip Canvas Vertical.

    It's important to understand that 'canvas' deals with the complete image and not a single layer.

    Thanks for the help guys. I used the tutorial to make a simple desktop wallpaper for my little iBook.
