Puzzle in Photoshop

Feb 11, 2014 5:13 PM

I am looking to create an image into the shape of a jigsaw puzzle piece- not the whole puzzle, just a single puzzle piece. Is this possible? I would like the photo to look like a giant puzzle piece. I would appreciate any advice or instructions!

    So you want the image of just one piece?  Of course the image will still have square sides.  Making a puzzle piece can be done by creating a shape with the pen tool.  An image can either be cliped to that shape, or the shape can be used as a vector mask.  Add a bevel and emboss to give the piece that rounded edge look.

    And you could then extrude it using Photoshop's 3D features for some additional fun.

    Giant, you say?  This bit fell right out of the sky.

    Also, there are some preset puzzle shapes under Objects for the custom shape tool.

    Good call RK.  It put me in mind of Flat Icon, but I can't make the plugin or the site work for me right now

     

    http://www.flaticon.com/

     

    The plugin goes nowhere, and the site comes back with a 'Bad gateway 502' error, in ME, FF and Chrome. :-(
