  • 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.
