  • Color lines???

    I've seen the term "color lines" used a number of times in the forum and really don't know for sure what it means.

    Here is one example from Carter's tutorial: "I deliberately select pictures that have color image lines within them that I can use as edges of pieces."

    I guess that you want to cut following the line at color change so one color on one piece and another color on adjacent piece. Is that what you are trying to achieve in a puzzle?

    I've cut a couple practice puzzles and just don't understand...for sure what to look for.

    Thanks,

    It's anywhere two or more colors meet. There are color lines at the edges of every image in a picture, except a picture that's all one color. In short, if there's a pig in the picture, I''ll cut along the lines of the body, head, legs, etc. of the pig. Trees have leaves and trunks. Buildings have walls and windows. That's color-line cutting and, as I've said, I deliberately choose pictures that have different colors in it so there are many color lines along which to cut. I don;t need a pattern.

    You essentially have it right. Give it a try.....

        All the puzzles I've ever posted are color-line cut. Here's an album with photos of the fronts and back of all of my recent puzzles for the past few years.

            Glad things worked out.

            I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

            Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

            So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
