I wasn't quite sure where to put this article because it's just a hobby, but one reason I take the type of photos I do. I've always been keen to do jigsaws. Do others here do jigsaws? Most of my life I did actual jigsaws but not the usual variety. I preferred jigsaws of oddly shaped or intricate pictures & pieces. Then with the advent of my first proper computer a Dell with Win96 (my actual first was a Vic 20 followed by a Commodore 64!), I soon got my first digital jigsaw software. Every updated operating system has enabled me to have a more powerful jigsaw software. Currently I have 2:- Eureka Jigsaw Mania & Spin Top Game Jigsaw Platinum. Each has it's pros & cons. One reason I spend time doing jigsaws is that as we age we have to work harder to keep the brain agile. This is one way I do that. I take beautiful & intricate photos to make make very complex jigsaws. Here's the one I'm currently doing:- 4332 extra large pieces, if made into a real jigsaw it would be aprox 2m wide. I can only see a small part of it on my extra wide laptop pc screen at any one time. It is so big it has stretched the jigsaw software to full capacity. Probably what I need now is a monitor like a TV screen but that is waaaay down the need/wants list. Because of the size of this picture, all the pieces are stacked in a single row around the edge in some places 50 deep. I've been at it for around 12.5hrs over 10days so far. Here is a screen print of the area I am working on now. Below that is a photo of the subject. When it's such a complex jigsaw I always have the transparent preview image there otherwise it would be impossible to do these larger puzzles. Across the bottom of the screen print you will see some stats:- time taken so far; total number of pieces; % of pieces placed so far; & the really big one, Piece Rotation Disabled! My goodness, I don't mind a complex jigsaw, but to add in piece rotation on a jigsaw like this would just be a self defeating senile act!
