The cheese-list (see http://mail.gnome.org/archives/cheese-list/2011-December/thread.html) provides info on this issue: cheese 3.* uses effects from the gnome-video-effects package which does not contain the Horizontal Flip (a simple mirror) and Vertical Flip effects.

But, there are two simple files (attached) a user can put in ~/.local/share/gnome-video-effects to add the effects.

If you copy them to /usr/share/gnome-video-effects/ they will be available to all users.

This has been fixed for Ubuntu 12.04 (loop for the "flip" effect, the "mirror" effect had already been taken). Thanks for reporting this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

gnome-video-effects (0.4.0-1) unstable; urgency=low

  * New upstream release
  * debian/gnome-video-effects.install: Install new flip effect
  * debian/control.in: Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.3 (no further changes)
  * debian/watch: Track .xz tarball
