Photoshop idea: when extending the canvas size, Mirror image being an option. This is useful for printing images on canvas and having a mirror border.

Hmm, I have actions that mirror the image edges after expanding it - but it certainly might be more straightforward and discoverable to have it as an option when changing the canvas size.

Other sorts of users might want to replicate the current image (think 3x3 tile), or toroidal copy (mirror on each edge and corner).

Right now you'd have to use an action or script to do it - but that's still pretty easy to setup. (canvas size, duplicate, transform and offset, flatten)

What I'm thinking about is what sort of options do we need if we implement this in the canvas size dialog. It is far easier to justify the work if it applies to more than one customer segment.
