You can customize mirrored images in a document.

Microsoft Word enables you to insert images from other applications into the program and customize them on your page. Mirroring displays a duplicate image as a reflection in Microsoft Word. You can use Word's picture effects to create the effect you want, whether you want to mirror an image at an angle or directly over the image. You can also display a full or half reflection and allow the reflection to touch or not touch the original image.


Step 1

Open a new or existing Word document. Place the insertion point where you want the image to go.
