Jigsaw Puzzle in NeoBook

Take a digital picture/photo 500x375... larger 30 pc puzzle.
315x235... 9 pc puzzle.


Conversation with Troy in the Chat Room on the NeoBoard

Troy uses PhotoShop... during a chat... this is how he told me he creates puzzle pieces.

[Troy] You open the mask...
[Rainie] ok
[Troy] Add a layer (of the photo you are using)
[Troy] get the magic wand... select the area you
want in the puzzle (the piece)
[Troy] while that selection is still highlighted
[Troy] select the photo
[Troy] copy it, paste into (which creates a new layer
with just that puzzle piece
[Troy] and when you are done, crop each piece with
one click and save each piece..
[Troy] I'm thinking that you could even use a MACRO
to record the majority of the steps and not much
to do :)
[Rainie] k... sounds easy enough
[Troy] clean and crisp pieces... oh and have the
backgorund set (initially to transparent..)

Thank You for letting me post this Troy! :o)

Using Troy's suggestion... shown here using Paint Shop Pro
This is the process I use now.
