Is there a way to see the mirror image of a photo in Preview on OS X? Is there a way to have Photo Booth Photos not come out in a mirror image?

Command + L twice, or Command + r twice – jessh Mar 22 '12 at 20:59
No, that's turning it by 180 degrees. The OP wants to flip it so that it's mirrored. @jessh. – slhck Mar 22 '12 at 21:02

Sure. In Photo Booth, press ⇧⌘F, or go to Edit » Auto Flip New Photos to automatically flip them.

In Preview, just go to Tools » Flip Horizontal.
