Now let's get your new Action into Photoshop.  How?

Make sure the Actions palette (Window - Actions) is visibleActions Palette

Obviously, your Actions palette will appear differently to the one shown but look for PUZZLE EFFECTS and click the 'drop down arrow' to expand the selection.

Apart from 'Licensing' the other three options let you create a jigsaw with either 20 or 6 pieces and then an option to adjust the bevel & emboss.

This is a remarkably simple tutorial and the Action talks you through every step of the process!

Let's get started

Find a suitable image - Google Images is a good place. Whichever image you choose should be landscape orientation. The one we used is here.

Right click the image and choose 'Copy' or 'Copy Image'.

Switch to Photoshop and go to FILE...New (or Ctrl + N) and a canvas will be automatically set to the size of the original image.  Click OK and a blank canvas appears in your workspace.

Go to EDIT...Paste (or Ctrl + V) and the image is pasted onto your canvas.  One final step and the hard work is done!  Let's resize the image. Go to IMAGE...Image Size and enter 750 in the 'Width' box. (Make sure the 'Constrain Proportions' box is checked).
