    Gary Browning has a book out on it (Scroll Saw Portraits), but there are several people on the site who make their own patterns. I know Canadian Scroller uses Serif a lot...perhaps he can help!

      I use Corel Photo Shop Plus. If you don't have any luck, e-mail me the photo and I'll see what I can do with it.

          Has anyone tried Coyote Stencil Shop, to make patterns from pictures?

            Some love it, some think it a waste of money. I'm in the latter group. Good news is that you can download a trial version with the only limitation that you can't save your work. Personally, I'm not impressed with it.

              What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
              The bags seem easier on the surface.
              But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

              As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

              I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

              I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

              To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
