Re: reverse printing

Have you found a solution for this problem??   I have the same problem; happens sporadically but once it happens there's no fix.  With the particular page I am printing I can't get it to correct itself. I thought at first it was associated with Classic apps but that wasn't consistent.  I just printed from Safari on a wireless iBook and this page is also reversed.  Extremely frustrating!!!!!

How to select mirror image or reverse image on printer to print t-shirt transfer

When you go to print, select your Lexmark 5200 Series printer, then click (Printing) Properties to open the Lexmark control panel.

Click the third tab on the left, marked Print Layout, then choose the Mirror radio button (see picture).

Click OK to apply the setting.

Note: if your printing program has a setting for t-shirt transfers, it may automatically reverse the image. Use only the setting in the program or in the printer- if you use both, the settings will cancel each other out.

How to print a reverse image on a BX300F

Reverse Printing if i get it like this it seem to be like this


Printers print what's sent to them, so you need to reverse the image before sending it. If your graphics program doesn't allow for mirroring an image, you can find instructions for producing a transparency, which is often in reverse.. however, the best way is to flip it in the software.

Some printer drivers have a check box in the driver dialog box that will allow you to flip the whole page, or shrink it to fit to the page, or allow multiple prints. If so, these printing functions will be found by opening the printer folder and selecting the printer properties.

The HP C4400 prints pages in reverse order, how can I change this setting.

Click on Start-->control panel-->printer and faxes or printers-->right click on C4400 series--> choose printer preferences-->Click on the top TAB Advance--> there is a check box for mirror image--> un-check it. Hit apply button at the bottom and click ok.

Incase you have an old version of software for this printer. Try to find under print preferences the same option for mirror image as the print outs are coming in reverse order due to mirror image ON on the printer properties.

Now it will work.

Print is coming out reversed

Somewhere in printing preferences, in control panel, and printer properties, there's a selection for mirror image printing for t-shirt stencils and the like. You just need to turn off mirror image printing and it goes back to normal.

How do I select mirror image (reverse image) from HP Photsmart

When you select Print and the Print window opens, select Preferences.

Click on the Advanced tab. Look for the "Mirror Image" option. It should be "Off". If you click on "Off" the drop down menu should appear to change it to "On". Click "OK" at the bottom. Then click "Print" on the Print window.

Don't forget to change it back when you are done. :-)

(Note: If the Mirror Image option is not on the Advanced tab, look on the Effects tab.)

When you select "Print" and get the print window to "Preferences". On the Advanced or Effects tab, look for the "Mirror Image" menu item. Turn it Off. If you cannot find it, comment back.

(BTW, the Mirror Image option is normally used to print t-shirt transfers.)

Mirror image printing

The simplest way to do it if the feature is not supported in your printers driver (most do not feature the option) is to nmirror the image in a graphics package such as Photoshop.

It's easy enough to do and once mirrored simply print it as normal and the image will still be reversed on the print out.
