You are free to distribute the jigsaw puzzle software packages that you create with this jigsaw puzzle generator software however and to whoever you wish. You can even sell your jigsaw puzzle packages with the jigsaw puzzle client software included.
The software is designed with a clean and simple layout. The embedded 'Instructions' tab page along with help buttons (the small buttons with a question mark on them) that show contextual information for the software's controls make the software easy to learn and to use.
The 'Select Puzzle Project' tab page lets you easily create new projects, open existing saved ones, close the current project, rename the current project, and delete the current project once you're done with it. You can also change the window title text for the jigsaw puzzle software on this page. The state of the currently open project is automatically saved when you close the project, close the program, or open a new project - and is also periodically saved when you make changes to the project.
The 'Add Source Images' tab page provides you with three methods to get the images that you wish to turn into jigsaw puzzles into your puzzle project. You can copy and paste the files into the project by using the 'Paste Source Images From Clipboard' button. You can click the 'Add Source Images Using File Requester' button to open a file requester to select and add the files. Or you can drag and drop the files onto the grey box beneath the 'Drag and drop the puzzle source image files onto the box below.' text to add them. You can add additional images to a puzzle project at any time.
The 'Sort Puzzle Images' tab page lets you sort the puzzle images into any order you wish. Just click the image's thumbnail button to select the image you want to move and then click the tall grey sort button at the position you want to move it to. You can also use this tab page to select images that you wish to edit the descriptions for on the 'Create Image Descriptions' tab page
The 'Create Image Descriptions' tab page lets you optionally create and edit description files for the images you are using as jigsaw puzzles. These description files will be shown on the 'About This Puzzle Image' tab page in the puzzle program when the image they are providing information about is used for a puzzle. You can create a page title, sub-headings, and paragraphs that provide context for the puzzle image. You can also add links, images (which can be linked), bolded or italic text, and many other elements to the page. If you decide that the available options are too limited then you can also edit the HTML description files directly (note that SCRIPT and other potentially abusable tags will be stripped out by the jigsaw puzzle software before it displays the description page). The description file for an image can always be omitted if you decide you don't wish to add one. The puzzle program will simply show a blank page in its place.
The 'Create Jigsaw Puzzles' tab page is where you will create the jigsaw puzzle software package. Just click the 'Create Jigsaw Puzzle Package' button to create the puzzle package from the currently open project and then click the 'Open Output Folder To View Created Puzzle Packages' button to open the 'Output' folder that the puzzle package was created in. You can then select, copy, and paste the jigsaw puzzle package folder to wherever you wish, or run it directly in the 'Output' folder to test it. To run the software just open its folder and double-click the 'JigsawPuzzles.exe' file. You can also create a zip file version of the puzzle package by clicking the 'Create Zipped Puzzle Package' button.
