Here is yet another solution to your problem which may (or may not) be
better suited for your specific situation.  Instead of flipping the
image when issuing the TV command, you can flip the 3-D (or any-D) array
using IDL's
REVERSE function.

For example, assuming Image is a 3-D array interleaved by bit (i.e.
Image[RGB,Rows,Columns]) then the following statement will flip the

Image = Reverse(Image,2)

The second argument (i.e. 2 in the above example) tells Reverse which
index to reverse.  The others remain unchanged.
