Hi,

 

Able to carry out data driven image generation using the tutorial below.

I'm trying to extend what I've built by flipping the image when it's loaded into the layer. Does anyone know how to do this?

 

Thanks

I did not watch the tutorial. Does it work to choose Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal?

When using variables, the pixel replacement will come in "as is", so the source image would need to be flipped before it is merged via variables... Or you run a second batch to flip the layer of the merged PSD files after they are created. You can't use smart objects to retain transforms with variables, which pre-date smart objects.

There isn't any option to instruct "flip" after replacing pixels using data sets as already stated. You must run action or script to batch process (flip) images after exporting data sets.

@Bojan Živković and @Stephen_A_Marsh thanks for your help. The action or script makes perfect sense. Thanks for your help.

Ran a test and the action approach was successful. For those that need it the approach for batch horizontal flipping is below.
