FlippyWindow is a simple Windows application that non-destructively flips any part of your screen horizontally, in real-time and using minimal resources.

Flipping images (or viewing things with a mirror) is a technique used to help view things with “fresh eyes” which can aid with spotting visual issues.

Frequently asked questions

Can’t I just use any image editor to do what FlippyWindow does?

As far as I’m aware, Clip Paint Studio, Krita, and PaintTool SAI have features that allow you to non-destructively change how you view an image. I built FlippyWindow because I use Adobe’s Creative Cloud suite which lacks such features.

FlippyWindow can also help you spot visual issues in work outside of image editors, including animations, application user interfaces, and website designs.

What is itch.io?

itch.io describes itself as “an open marketplace for independent digital creators”. It allows me to offer FlippyWindow with pay-what-you-want pricing.

If you want to support future development of FlippyWindow–I have a few things planned–and anything else I make, please consider naming your price before downloading. This is completely optional; you can download FlippyWindow without paying or signing up to anything.

Will earlier versions of Windows, Linux and macOS be supported?

FlippyWindow uses APIs (specifically the second release of the Magnification API) that were introduced in Windows 8. At the moment there are no plans to rewrite FlippyWindow to support earlier versions of Windows and other operating systems.
