    Default Vertical mirror help

    I'm new to Java and I really need some help! I need to write a method to mirror the left half of a picture to the right half of the picture motorcycle.jpg (see attachment for example). I have a method, but it flips the image and copies it to a new picture. I need the method to take half of the image and mirror it over the other half of the image. Please help!

    public Picture flip() {
        Pixel currPixel = null;
        Pixel targetPixel = null;
        Picture target = 
          new Picture(FileChooser.pickAFile());
        for (int srcX = 0, trgX = getWidth()-1; 
             srcX < getWidth();
             srcX++, trgX--) {
          for (int srcY = 0, trgY = 0; 
               srcY < getHeight();
               srcY++, trgY++) {
            // get the current pixel
            currPixel = this.getPixel(srcX,srcY);
            targetPixel = target.getPixel(trgX,trgY);
            // copy the color of currPixel into target
        return target;

    Default Re: Vertical mirror help

    What steps or algorithm mus the code do to "mirror" an image?
    Can you describe the steps the code must do to move the pixels to get the desired output?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
