This is so elegant Francine, a truly striking piece. Thank you very much!

~ Pat, well done!! Thank you.
~ Anitam3, we're on same wavelength.

Piece sizes ~ I've just posted a 221 pieces puzzle twice. Images are different sizes. The larger image does indeed have larger pieces.

Loved it!!! Beautiful and challenging, which is the perfect combination! Thanks, Francine! :-)))

Hi whatnauts, hope you enjoy it. :)))

Wow, I've just come across this puzzle and I really, really like it. I'm off to bed shortly, but will get to it tomorrow or sometime..... :)))))

No, yours are a good size. And yes, I do solve Lela's even though sometimes the piece size could be slightly bigger. Sorry about confusion - should have explained myself better. Am off too - good night :))
[My 30-60 piece puzzles are 800x600 - my 80+ puzzles are 1,600x1,200. This one was 4,000x3,000.]

I should add that I'm falling asleep as I type, so I'm sorry if I make even less sense than usual...! I'll check back here in the morning--good night! :-)))

I know that Gail (Octomom) has had issues with that, too, and I've seen a number of puzzles (lelabugosi ones, often), where the pieces are really small. I don't know why that happens, and I don't remember seeing it happen on mine... I didn't know that that was what you were focusing on, although, given your comments about your test puzzles, I probably should have realized it. I do have to ask--have any of my puzzles had pieces that seemed much smaller than usual? Because, as I just said, I don't remember that happening, so I haven't has any reason to try to correct it......

Thanks for answering - and you've helped. There are puzzles in my comfort-solving range that I don't bother with once it becomes apparent the puzzle pieces are too small for me. Hence, my focus on image size.

Sorry if that's no help, but that's the way this Luddite works! LOL!

I really don't know, when it comes to the Paint puzzles, because the "canvas" I use, the same one I always start with, gives me anything from 400-540 pieces, depending on the design and how I crop it, and that's fine with me. (That's all I care about, that it should be in that range, 99% of the time, unless I am deliberately trying to make a monster!). So I just checked a few of them, to answer you here, and they were all somewhere in the high 2000 to mid 3000 range. But I only actually work with the numbers when I want to make a LunaPic larger, when people ask for it. Then I usually try at least 1200 as one of the dimensions. Tonight I enlarged one, to 1400 by 1250, and it jigged to 440. So clearly the 3000 of my Paint isn't necessary......

Thank you, Pat. I was wanting the opinion of someone who solved puzzles, especially large ones. Question - what image size do you use when posting a super large puzzle?
...yes, the other three private ones are going to be deleted.
...Am delighted you liked this. Am having fun with gradients/texture. Again, your input/help is appreciated. :))
...BTW, we've been getting a lot of snow. Also, wanted to mention I've been solving more of those aforementioned puzzles and am now attacking the harder ones, albeit still smaller grid.

I bookmarked this, plus your other 3 choices! I really don't see any difference in image quality, and if the piece size varies, I couldn't tell, because I automatically shrink them to fit the screen better! In other words, any one would be fine for me to solve, and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference. I'll solve this version, since the others are tests, and this one is public so I know it will stay put! LOL! Love it, Francine! :-))) (Hope you don't mind my barging in uninvited...!).
