Flipping multiple layers, but individually, at once.

Is there a way in Photoshop to flip multiple layers at once, but indivually.

 

So I created this, let's say, long timeline, but instead of reading it from left to right, it needs to be from right to left. Instead of flipping everything one by one, rearranging etc, I thought about flipping the entire thing at once, then indivually flip everything back. But as this is a long timeline, I don't want to have to flip every indiviual layer one by one, about 100 times. Is there a way, to select all of these layers, and somehow filter it on just flipping them within their own space.

That would need Scripting. 

How experienced are you with JavaScript?

I see, well thats a shame. I don't have any experience with JavaScript, and wouldn't know how to apply it to PS.

You just need to change the two variables horScale and verScale to -100 and 100. 

And maybe change the last »true« in the line 

        layerDuplicateOffsetScaleRotate (theLayers[x][1], 0, 0, horScale, verScale, 0, true)   

to »false« if you don’t want duplicated Layers.

Were you able to adapt the Script?

No, unfortunataly, I have no idea how to apply it to PS so whats the point of changing a script which I have no idea how to use haha. I suppose I could find a tutorial on how to, change the script, try to run it, if it still doesn't work I do feel like I'd rather have spend all that time flipping the layers invidually. 

Thanks for the suggestion anyways! But I guess there is no quick/easy way to just flip them indivually if youre not a codemaster 😄 I'll definitely look into it someday though.

If you should pursue this save the code as a txt-file, change the extension to .jsx and copy it into Photoshop’s Presets/Scripts-Folder; after restarting Photoshop it should be available under File > Scripts (and can be assigned a Shortcut or used in an Action).

Check out this thread: 

 
Edit: The variables horScale and verScale would need to be changed to -100 and 100 respecitvely.
