Welcome and let's get started! Here's how to create your very own jigsaw puzzle:
First of all, you'll need a sexy image. You could either use an image from your computer, or one you found on the web.
Using an image file from your computer:
First, you'll have to upload the image file to an accepted image hosting service. Please go to shuttr or imgur and upload your image there.
Clicking any of the links above will open a new browser window or tab.
When you're done, you should copy the URL to the newly uploaded image into your clipboard. Here's how to do it:
As soon as you upload the image, it will appear in your browser. Right-clicl it with your mouse, and a popup menu will appear.
In the menu, you'll see an option like Copy image URL or Copy Image Location. Click it. Now the link to your image is in your clipboard.
Now you can come back to the Jeegies browser window/tab, and paste the URL into the Image URL input.
When using Imgur, rather than copying the image URL, you can use the Imgur Markdown, and Jeegies.com will automatically extract the URL for you.
Don't worry if you don't know what "imgur markdown" means. If you decide to use imgur, you'll see the markdown field as soon as you've uploaded your image. You can copy its contents by clicking on it and paste it here. It's very easy to use, really.
When using an uploaded image, you have to supply a title, and optionally, a short description. In order to make your life easier, we offer you a default title. You can either use it, or get creative and come up with another one.
As soon as you paste a valid image URL, a preview will appear in the preview box. A missing preview may be caused by one of the following issues:
- The image isn't hosted by an accepted service: For security reasons, we only accept images from trusted sites. Please stick with the services listed above. In case you'd like to suggest an additional service, you could do it here.
- The URL doesn't seem to point to an image file: Linking to anything but image files creates a major security risk which we cannot allow. Please only link to image files, such as .jpg and .png. These are just examples. We support quite a few more image formats.
- The image cannot be loaded: There might be a problem with your internet connection, maybe the image you're linking to doesn't exist, or the server hosting the image may be currently down. We may create a puzzle from your image link, but it won't work until the problem with your image is resolved. Please open your image in a new browser tab and check if it loads.
Previewing your puzzle
If we don't find an issue with your image, a preview link will appear underneath the inputs. Clicking it will open your new puzzle in a new tab or window. You can check if the puzzle works, and whether you are pleased with the result, or if you'd like to make changes.
As soon as you've clicked on the preview link, you gain acces to the generated codes beneath it:
- The link to your puzzle: This should be self-explanatory. You can copy and paste this link into your browser, and your puzzle will open there.
Please be sure to save your link, or it will be lost. Currently, we don't save your links for you.
- BBCode: You can use this to post a link to your puzzle on an internet forum.
- HTML code: Here you get a text link to your puzzle. You can use this if you have a website and want to paste a link to your puzzle from there.
Using an image file from the web:
Now that you know how to do things the hard way, let's check out an alternative:
Rather than uploading an image, you can use one from an already existing page.
Currently, the following sites are supported:
We'll be adding more sites. If you'd like to suggest a site to add, you can do it here.
One consideration when suggesting sites: Not all sites are convenient to use with Jeegies.com. In particular, we prefer sites that display just one main image on a page. This is true for both art 'deviations' and 'pins,' and any other kind of site we may add. Pages that display whole 'albums' of images are not convenient to use, and won't be a priority.
So how to make a puzzle from a supported web page? Very simple:
Just paste the link to the page into the Image URL input. If it is accepted, you will see the preview link appear, and can click it to open a preview of your puzzle.
It may take a few moments for the image preview to appear in the image preview box, because we have to analyze the page you're linking to.
You don't have to supply any title or description. We take this information from your link. If you do enter a title or description, they will override the ones from your link.
It's THAT easy.
So, have you created your first puzzle, yet?
