I'm glad you are enjoying these! I'll try to post them more often.
If you have a picture you'd like made into a puzzle and don't know how to do it, you can send it to me and I will do it for you. I've seen some member photos of mountains and lakes that I think would be fun. Pictures must be horizontal and sized to 400 x 300 pixels. I can shrink them if they are larger but if they aren't proportional, they need to be cropped or they will have gray bands like the "SOC logo" puzzle from 3-12-10.
A couple hints that may shorten your times:
1. Are you clicking the piece then clicking where you want it to go or are you clicking and dragging (holding mouse button down until the piece is placed)? It's faster to "click and drag".
2. I also find it easier to start with the edge pieces and assemble the puzzle near the center of the screen.
3. Pieces from the center can be moved to the nearest side and an edge piece brought back to be placed.
4. Get a turbo mouse like MACK C-85
