    jigidi.com

    The reasons why I am posting that site as a resource:

    1) One can choose from six different background colors for the pieces while assembling them. I am amazed at how a background change can emphasize or drab the colors of the pieces.
    Background colors - black or dark charcoal
    muted eggplant or dark mauve
    blue gray
    medium gray
    sagey green
    ivory
    white

    2) That the color I "think" I am working with - isn't actually the color that it is.
    Example: I "think" I am putting together a picture of a white cat - and the actual color of the pieces might be tan or pink or gray.

    3) That the overall effect from lots of little pieces can be very surprising and not at all what one might expect. I have assembled several puzzles where the individual pieces look like ink scribbles - and when put together, it was a cat or a wolf.

    So - Color A can appear to change color or value - depending on what is surrounding it.
    The sum of the pieces can be unexpected and take on an image of its own.

    I like the Jigidi puzzle site and create puzzles there but didn't know the background could be changed. I will have to try this. TFS

    Background colors do affect how we see other colors. That's the main reason I painted my sewing rooms a cream color and use off white flannel on my design wall. The more neutral the background the less is interferes with how I see the colors.

    I also like the puzzles on this site, but I had no idea the background could be changed!

    After "saving progress" - the screen goes to the picture of the puzzle - at the bottom there are six squares of different colors - click on one of them to change the background - and then click on the "go back to solving" button

    Bear, you did it again! I never realized those little squares did that and of course, I failed to read through all the info pages, silly me. TFS

    I, too, have used jigidi a bit over a period of several years and never noticed we could change the background. We could literally upload quilt blocks and enjoy how they look against different backgrounds as we put the puzzles together. Thanks, Bearisgray. I've enjoyed visiting your various posts this evening!

    didn't know you could change the back ground, thanks Bear
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    When I found this, to this day I spend way to time on these.. I kinda find them relaxing & no brainers... only do the 60-120 size tho. Larger just have too many pieces...
