Of course, Flipping an image is to flip the image upside down. When we see ourselves in the mirror, we see a flipped image or a reflection of ours.
When we refer to a flipped image, it is meant that when we hold our left hand, the reflection of the image in the mirror appears to be raising its right hand.
Similarly, when an image is flipped in Google docs, the left part of the image becomes its right part and vice versa. In short, a flipped image is a reversed image. The image can be rotated either horizontally or vertically.
