You can flip tiles according to the Horizontal or/and Vertical axis by checking the corresponding option(s).

You can also decide which tiles will be flipped:

All tiles

All tiles will be flipped.

Alternate tiles

Only odd tiles will be flipped.

Explicit tile

You can define a particular tile using both Row and Column input boxes. This tile will be marked with a box in Preview. Press Apply to mark this explicit tile. Repeat this procedure to mark more than one tile.


With this slider and its input box, you can set the opacity of the resulting image. This option is valid only if your image has an Alpha channel.

Number of Segments

means the image into n to the power of two tiles, where n is the number you set with the slider or its input box. n = 3 will make nine tiles in the image.
