I used Gimp back when it first came out and I use to know my way around it
pretty well. Not anymore! I just got Gimp 2.6.8 and OMG...it has like 100x the
feature set of the original! I'm lost and can't make it work. :(

So, I thought that if I explain what I need to do maybe some of you could
point me in the right direction. 

I'm trying to create an icon for my guild in an MMO. The icon must be exactly
20x20 pixels and no more than 57k bytes total. Easy enough. I want to use the
head of an digital image I found, cut it out, create a mirror of it, then
rotate it 45 degrees (so that I can get the largest image of the head as
possible), and then paste it onto a 200x200 pink (255 R/0 G/ 255B) canvas. I
will then reduce the image down to 20x20 and import it into the game. The pink
layer will be transparent in the final in-game product.

I think I can figure out how to rotate the 2nd, head, layer without
disturbing the pink layer...But I'm having problems with creating the mirror
image. Where is the mirror function in the menus? Is there a mirror function
in Gimp?

I hope you can help me...Thanks a bunch, guys!
