A: Most of the jigsaw puzzle images come from licensed royalty-free image collections.
Q: Can I submit my own images to be featured on the site?
A: No. We'd love to be able to feature your images, but it would be too difficult to research and confirm copyright on submitted images. If you want to turn your photo into a jigsaw puzzle, see the next two questions.
Q: Can I make a jigsaw puzzle from my own picture?
