Puzzles are a treasured pastime among children and adults. They make incredible gifts and keepsakes, and are perfect for any occasion and skill level. You can even learn how to design your own puzzle from any special photo you want to commemorate!
Using the simple and intuitive puzzle maker tool here from MakeYourPuzzles will take the guesswork out of how to make your own jigsaw puzzle, resulting in a totally unique and creative puzzle you can enjoy for years to come. Our process is straightforward and is as fun as solving the puzzle itself!
We offer a variety of puzzle sizes and piece counts. You can turn your photo into a forty-eight piece puzzle, or even a 1,000-piece puzzle. Newbies and children might prefer a smaller puzzle with bigger pieces, while an expert puzzler will enjoy the challenge of larger puzzles. Your photo puzzle can be tailored to anyone!
Choosing Your Photo
You may already have a photo in mind that inspired you to create a custom jigsaw puzzle. Classic photo puzzles of one standout picture are perfect for anniversaries and birthdays.
You can also convert a gallery of photos into a collage puzzle! Our puzzle maker tool lets you upload up to sixty-four photos for one puzzle. This can be a great idea to commemorate multiple people or one person over a period of time. Gallery puzzles are wonderful family reunion keepsakes.
Make sure your selections stick to one theme, and choose photos that are the most clear and in focus. Avoiding blurry photos will help ensure your final puzzle will be crisp and more enjoyable to solve. The better quality your photo selections are, the better your puzzle will turn out.
High-resolution photos will have the best results. The larger your puzzle, the higher your resolution should be. For smaller puzzles, a minimum resolution of 1,600 pixels will have a great result. For our larger 500- and 1,000-piece puzzles, a minimum of 2,500 pixels is strongly recommended. If you aren’t sure about the resolution or quality of your photos, our dedicated customer service team can guide you.
Arranging Your Photos
Once you have made your selections, you can use our puzzle maker tool to arrange the photographs anyway you want. Simply drag and drop to rearrange to your desired format. You can even resize all of your photos and have different sizes for each photograph. Our tool ensures your pictures will fit perfectly into place.
Customizing Your Photo Puzzle
You can choose from a wide array of templates and themes to make your photo selections really stand out. No matter what the occasion or celebration, we have designs to fit your unique needs. You can use our text tool to add words to your photo, like names, dates, and well wishes. You can match the colors and fonts to your personal aesthetic.
When you feel satisfied with your puzzle, you can customize your puzzle box with any photo! The puzzle box is a lovely detail that not only tells the recipient what’s inside, but it also gives it that extra special touch.
MakeYourPuzzles promises high-quality photo puzzles printed on premium, eco-friendly puzzle boards–something you won’t get when making a puzzle from photos at Costco! We take pride in offering extensive customization features to bring your vision to the next level.
