Yes it works for me but I only used 6 pieces for my first effort, how anyone could have the patience to do a 100 piece puzzle I do not know!!

Stick around on here! I am sure like me you will learn a great deal on this friendly forum. I got about 3/4 way through a multipiece puzzle, if I remeber right about 76 pieces but the PC just crawled after about fifty pieces. I've now upgraded to a Core2Duo, maybe I should try again
A hearty thank you for your puzzle tutorial. I had to give my head a shake or two to get the cobwebs out but then everything fell into place and my simple 6 pc puzzle worked fine. A great big thanks. This will improve my PSPro presentations immensely.
I am new to this I have saved all the files but when I start to put it together I go wrong
I.e. I put the 1st piece in move it ok
but when i put a blank slide in and set the backgroung to a puzzle slide it is not transparent it is black

Tried to find the show but the page can't be found!

is no longer valid. I don't know what he did with the example he had there.
mikey (PSP6, Photoshop CS6, Vegas Pro 14, Acid 7, BluffTitler, Nikon D300s, D810)
Lots of PIC and Arduino microprocessor stuff too !!
PS I downloaded the trial version of Photoshop CS3 extended and it has an option where you can delete the canvas/background - it appears under the layers tab - just click on the eye next to the canvas icon.
I know it's been a while since this topic was news but if it helps anyone i did a video to show my daughter this technique. Well actually i did two first showing how to create the jigsaw and then one showing how to use it as layers in ProShow.
She saw a show i created of a model i use and liked the intro.
Anyway hope this helps anyone joining the group as i just have. This forum has been a real find.
Thanks for the tricks and tips
Choice Backgrounds has a couple of different puzzle "styles" for both PSP and PSG........
The Montage effect is particularly "unique" and impressive.....

Various puzzle approaches have been done in the past (v3.2 and earlier) but with the inclusion of styles, puzzles have become much easier to implement and/or work with. With all associated support layers, slides with 50 or more layers has become common. It used to be that this many layers would make the program work at a crawl. More powerful computers and improvements to the program itself have addressed that issue. Puzzles can be made with pieces that resemble traditionally what you'd expect a puzzle piece to look like to sliding squares or rectangles that form a kind of puzzle effect, or a visual effect that accomplishes the same thing.
One of them generally has what we’re wishing for. On the topic of puzzles I found
that http://outsidethebox.name/styles3.html, is another source along with
choicebackgrounds and Fenimore’s which have already been mentioned. Each
of these vendors adds their personal interpretation to the concept of a puzzle style,
giving us an array of choices, thank you vendors.
