How To Do It

Almost any image -photo, fine art reproduction, digital art, cartoon, or drawing - can be used to make a MixAPix puzzle. If you don't already own MixAPix, download the MixAPix FREE Trial. Then go to the My MixAPix menu and click on Create Album to make your own personal logical jigsaw Albums from any jpg images already on your computer.

Want more puzzles? Use the links at left to help you in your quest for more images. When you find a picture that you like, download the largest size available. (Usually, clicking on the thumbnail will make the picture get bigger.) You will need a picture that is almost screen size (it's OK if it's bigger than that) to make a really beautiful puzzle.

Please respect the web site/artist copyright. It's generally OK to copy pictures for your own personal use, on your own computer, but commercial use is a no-no unless specifically stated otherwise.

 

MixAPix Music!

MixAPix uses MIDI music files for its background music. If you want to add to the music selections included with the game or change to a different style of music entirely, the following links are for you.

Here you will find a number of sites that have huge quantities of MIDI files, in a variety of musical styles, and you can download as many as you like for free. You should be able to find music that is perfect for your tastes.

Just copy the downloaded MIDI selections into the MixAPix MIDI folder located at C:\ Program Files \ KPixGames \ MixAPix \ MIDI. MixAPix will randomly play whatever MIDI files you put there.
