Urgent question about typing backwards?

Recommended Posts

Sorry, this topic can be deleted after my question is answered, but I urgently need to know how to type backwards!

 

It's for art, so that when I print a sheet of large writing out, if i rub a wet sponge on the back, it'll come out faded on a sketchbook page, but the right way round.

 

So does anyone know how I can write letters that are reversed?!

 

Thanks!

 

N.B, I'm on a Mac, if that makes any difference..?

Erm, I'm sure there's a technique, but what I would do is write on acetate in marker pen whatever you wanted to write, then flip it over and trace with a normal sheet! If it needs to be printed then surely an art package (even a basic one) could do that easy!!

Do you have; Indesign; Illustrator; Photoshop?

 

In that case => flip (canvas) horizontally

 

I just saw you can also do this in preview (so with images/pdffiles)

=> tools => flip horizontally

Type it out, screencap it (using grab, spotlight search) open in preview and flip it.

D'oh! Of course.

 

I have GIMP, and yeah, I just flipped it round in that. Thanks!

I had to spell 'Dandelion' backwards whilst playing Cranium last night, was a bit challenging under pressure but I got it. [/a bit related]
