Affinity Photo: Flip Horizontal Function for the Clone Stamp Tool


Recommended Posts

Is there a symmetry mode for the Clone Stamp tool?

I want to use the Clone Stamp to mirror one side of my image to the other side.

For example, in the image that I have attached, I wanted to copy the eye from one side of the portrait and paint it on the other side. If I use the clone stamp normally, both eyes will be facing in the same direction, which doesn't look right. I need the clone stamp to be flipped horizontally, so that it will mirror the eye.

Thank you for your help!

In the context toolbar, for the clone tool, there is an option called Flip on the right-hand side.

If you have a small screen it may not display, so use the arrows there to see the other options

Thank you for pointing this out to me! :)

My laptop screen is pretty big, but I still had to make the Affinity Photo window full-screen in order to be able to see this option.

Did you try clicking on the >> icon at the end of the Context toolbar to see the items that won't fit? That should work even if the window is too narrow to show all the items on it.

That is a useful tip. It looks like it's possible to also access the Flip function that way.
