About

Welcome to Jigsaw Explorer!

Jigsaw Explorer was created with intent of providing jigsaw puzzle enthusiasts with a great selection of high quality, family friendly online jigsaw puzzles. We have over two thousand hand picked puzzles available and new puzzles being added everyday. Most of our jigsaw puzzle subjects are chosen from the photos of Flickr photographers who have graciously made their photos available through Creative Commons licensing. In return, we give credit and links to the photographers on both the puzzle pages and within the Jigsaw Explorer puzzle program (click Help > Credit). We hope you will use those links to visit the photographers’ pages and leave a comment on their photos if you are a Flickr member.

In addition to our regular jigsaw puzzles, we also present a special mystery puzzle each Friday for your enjoyment. We show only a portion of the mystery puzzle’s full puzzle subject in the preview picture. You must complete the puzzle to reveal the full photo! The Friday mystery puzzle is a fun, interesting challenge we hope you will enjoy. You can find the Friday mystery puzzle on our home page.

But there’s more to excellent online jigsaw puzzles than great photos. A first class jigsaw puzzle software program is needed as well. We believe this is where Jigsaw Explorer really shines. Our jigsaw puzzle program is based on Microsoft’s Silverlight technology and is packed with great features such as:

  • Full screen display
  • A wide choice when selecting the number of puzzle pieces for a puzzle
  • The ability to save a jigsaw puzzle in progress and return to it later
  • The ability to display only the edge pieces
  • The ability to easily move multiple pieces with the capture & release feature
  • Rotatable puzzle pieces
  • A hint feature when you need a little help

The attractive presentation of our jigsaw puzzles is the result of a puzzle program whose display has been carefully refined. We have also paid close attention to the small details necessary to ensure that using our puzzle program results in a truly pleasurable jigsaw puzzle experience. We continue to refine the program and we are interested to hear any comments and suggestions you may have.

Thank you for stopping by, and we hope you will return often to enjoy our online jigsaw puzzles!
