I need to be able to flip an image / active layer either vertically or horizontally.
Does work but that obviously flips the entire document vertically where as I want to do it on just the active layer
I can see in the
invert() method it does mention:
inverts the selection (deselects the selection and selects the rest of
the layer or document). Tip. To flip the selection shape, see rotate
And that says the following:
rotate (angle [, anchor]) –
Rotates the selection by the specified amount around the specified anchor
I’m already using the rotate method like so elsewhere and cannot see how I can flip the image through this?
obj.rotate( rotation, AnchorPosition.TOPLEFT );
There’s no flip method for ArtLayer, you can use
Resizes the layer to the specified
dimensions (as a percentage of
its current size) and places it in
the specified position.
activeDocument.activeLayer.resize(-100,undefined); //will flip layer horizontally activeDocument.activeLayer.resize(undefined,-100); //will flip layer vertically
(there’s also a third argument for an anchor point)
