I created some art. Everything was going fine and then once I finished I saved and when I went back to it the document was saved (and showing up in the thumnail) flipped horizontally! Every time I flip it back and save it just reverts back to being backwards!!! I have no idea what is happening or why. Please help!

If you are flipping your image in the View menu, that is a View setting and it will flip back when reopened. If you want to actually flip it, use Edit > Transform > Flip Horizontal instead.

What kind of files are you saving? PSD, JPEG, PNG etc…

 

You could trying doing a Save As to create a new file and see if that file is stable.

Hi Niki. Did you try the suggestion I made to the original post and save a copy of the file?

Forgive me Michael, but you didn't suggest anything other than to save as... unless there was more that is no longer posted here?

 

I did find that the answer is in the view menu as Jane suggested below.

 

I both cases, it reopens flipped whether saved as or simply reopened. I needed to go into the view settings to rectify.

Thank you Michael and Jane for your help!

Much appreciated 🙂

All the best to you,

Niki

Great to hear you solved the problem. I was wondering if your Photoshop file and the preview image for the Photoshop file were mirror images of each other. My "Save As" suggestion was to force a refresh of a possibly corrupted preview image.
