I'm trying to flip an image in PPx7, I have just the image I want to flip, but it flips the background image also. But when I Ctrl X (cut) the background the image will flip. Is the way it works? I have tried masked, unmasked, locked the object(background) , all with the same results.
Well, we must understand the logic of the program (same as Photoshop or other similar software). As you surely noticed, there're two different "flip" situation, one under Image menu for the entire image and other under Object menu, for selected object only.
So, you should select the are you want (using mask tools) then go to Object / create / copy from mask in order to create a new object
