How to make a mirror image...

I was wondering if there was a way to make a mirror image of a picture. Kind of new at the photoshop thing didnt see anything in the Photoshop Help
Select the "move" tool (tap letter "V")
Choose Image > Flip Horizontal
this makes a mirror version of the image.
If you wanted to make a side-by-side mirror, first
Choose Image > Canvas Size, and double the width of the canvas. Be sure to click the "area" button (designated by arrows which point to the side you wish to hold the existing image to,) so the existing image will move out of the center when the new width is added.
Now, select the image or portion of the image you want mirrored, tap "V" (the Move Tool) and hit Cntrl/J (Mac Cmd/J) to "float" a copy of the image in an active selection.
Choose Image > Flip Horizontal and move the image into position.
That's all there is to it!
