How to Mirror an Image in Adobe PDF

Adobe Acrobat is a comprehensive program used to create and edit Portable Document Format (PDF) files. Acrobat provides various editing tools allowing you to make changes to text and images embedded in the document. Any effects you want to apply to an image in a PDF should be done in an image editor, such as Photoshop, as Acrobat’s image editing capabilities are limited. Acrobat can, however, do a simple mirror effect by flipping an image.
