How do I flip a pic horizontally in Photo booth?

I used to do this all the time - but for some reason I can't find the right button today. Can anyone help? It seems crazy that they would eliminate this - I don't want to read the title backwards! It's not in iPhoto either.

Apparently horizontal flip is the only thing you can do. It's in the Edit menu:
Edit a photo
Flip a photo: Select a photo, then choose Edit > Flip Photo.

Automatically flip new photos and videos: Choose Edit > Auto Flip New Items.

Save a photo without effects: Select the photo, then choose File > Export Original.
I've never used PhotoBooth, and it seems strange not to have the standard rotate and flip controls. I guess you're expected to export the photo and use something like iPhoto.

Thanks - can't believe that I couldn't find it.
