I’d like to create a reflection of an image below the image. I had planned to bind a second image to the first image and then use the blur property to blur. However, I can only figure out how to rotate the image, but cannot figure out a way to horizontally or vertically “flip” the image. Any ideas or suggestions?
You might need to use something like imagemagick to achieve such desired effect
Hmm. Ok. Not a way to do it within Intuiface then? I guess I can create a duplicate “flipped” photo for each of the primary photo asset. I’m not familiar with imagemagick, but after a quick glance I’m thinking the easiest way to do that is with a batch action in photoshop given that I need to do it for ~2000 photos.
Welcome to the Community!
There is a way to do that with a trick I’ll tag as “ugly trick”
You can try this and maybe use it to apply a mirror effect when displaying a single image, but I don’t recommend using it in a collection as the trick itself uses a collection too, and having a lot of nested collection may degrade performances.
Long story short, the trick is to use a Carousel Collection. On a this type of collection, as shown below, you can decide to display the back of items.
The twisted way to go for this trick will be:
- add you image to the scene, standard way, using an Image Asset
- add a Carousel
- put 2 items in a Carousel: one will be your image, the other will be a transparent element, like a rectangle shape with a 0 Opacity
- set the Carousel index on displaying the transparent element, so you see the back of your image, which looks like a mirrored version, uncheck “allow scroll” so it can’t be moved
- give the Carousel a 180° rotation and set its height and width so it’s similar to the original above
And here is the final effect!
I let you download the sample experience below if you want to dig in.

That’s mostly for educational/demo purpose, don’t forget the disclaimer above
Thanks, @Alex. That’s a cool “ugly” trick.
I ended up making this work through the photoshop method above before seeing your response.
I may go back and try the Carousel way later as if I add more images, I wouldn’t have as many steps to get them into the Collection.
