    This video is taken from a full video series on Lynda.com. The instructor Deke McClelland is the best Illustrator/Photoshop/InDesign teacher there is. I have spent dozens of hours learning from his courses, and they are all top-notch. To the commenters below who want him to get straight to the point in 30 seconds, understand that the nature of his course is one that moves a bit more slowly so the viewer can work alongside him and come away with a mastery of the software. If he were to show each effect in 30 seconds' time, it would be impossible to follow along and retain everything.

    Way too much talk which is pointless and meaningless. The point is about 20 or 30 seconds of the whole content

    what if the mirror axes is not on the object, let's say you are making a face and you want to mirror the ears?

    To all those who I guess don't know, and keep commenting about his non-stop talking, this is a Lynda.com tutorial. He's a professional instructor, it'd be like saying to your college professor that they are talking too much.

    Despite all these crazy comments, the lesson helped a great deal. Thank you, because this classwork with AI takes a great deal of understanding

    With a closed shape hold Alt+Click at the point in the center where you want to flip, select. From the dialog box click "Copy" and chose "Vertical" axis. Lord Jesus Christ.
