From PSP 14, 15 AND 16 there is no option for Image - Mirror & Image -  Flip. There is a new option but this does not give the same result except when the tube/image covers the whole image from side to side There is a easy way to add the old Mirror and Flip options to the Image Menu.
I have written a tutorial you can find it HERE .
From PSP 17 the option is back

NOTE : If you use your own images or tubes, make them the same size!!!
