What do you do when you’ve taken a killer Boomerang selfie on Instagram, only to realise that you need to flip it? Normally, having a flipped video wouldn’t really matter. But any writing will be in reverse, making it hard to read for your Instagram fans. And sometimes we just seem to look better on the flipside ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

For example: 

It’s hard to believe we live in a world with no flip function for Instagram Boomerang video (*sigh* first world problems) but nevertheless, there is a way to flip Instagram Boomerang videos without having to redo the whole thing using the front camera.

4. Click Flip

You’ll want to select Horizontal in order to flip Instagram Boomerang videos.
