    Now this is a strange one. When taking a selfie and using the playground mode, the image is reversed. I spent over an hour with technical support, they could not fix it, and they're sending me a replacement phone. Has anyone seen this problem before? I know that the image is reversed, because the writing on my shirt is reversed.

    That's normal as far as I know but I hope they change it. Actually some devices take their selfies like that and some devices allow you to chose normal camera view.

    I don't know the logic behind the regular selfie having a normal view. It seems to be flip it after taking the shot.

    There are apps that allow you to flip the image.

    However, this reverse (mirror) image only occurs while using Playground. Otherwise, I am able take a normal picture.

    Understood....I mention that in my response. Mine behaves exactly like yours. I'm sure we'll be getting others chiming in. Hopefully they can change it.

    Honestly I wouldn't use Google support as an indicator for whether or not something is wrong.

    Can you take a selfie in playground mode and tell us if it's normal or mirror imaged?

    I do not disagree. I have had some most unusual conversations with them. However, the selfie feature is acting quirkily. Thus, in an an abundance of caution, I suppose, they are sending a replacement.

    Regular selfies come out normal but selfies taken in playground mode seems to come out mirror image on the OPs phone....so do mine.

    The issue for the OP is that selfies in Playground mode are mirror image. It appears to be normal behaviour for the Pixel.

    In my opinion no. Mirror is the way most selfie cams used to take photos. I think it's the way the image is captured. Some devices give you the option to reverse it back to normal. I think the trend is to normalize the photo in most current devices. I think it flips the image during processing. Why it's not set up that way in Playground mode I don't know. There's a lot of processing already going on in Playground mode but it shouldn't be that difficult to reverse the image. It can be done with a third party app.

    Selfies that display mirrored in the final image are a huge pet peeve of mine. Not that I take many but I cringe every time I see it. I can understand the preview being mirrored so you can easily compose the shot, but that's the only reason for it. If you have a lot that need to be flipped due to this bug/feature, I recommend this app. It has a batch mode so you can mirror (found in the "Effect II" set of controls) a bunch of images at once.

    Yeah but it should be built in the editing tool to revert it , don't like to add a 3rd party app to do this .

    I got ya! I haven't used the Playground feature yet. Unfamiliar with the nuances of it.
