Post here to ask questions about creating and publishing your book as an app in the app store.

How do you create the jigsaw puzzels using the Kwik plugin that so many book apps have?

Hi Metta,

It's easy to make a jigsaw puzzle in Kwik. The most time consuming part is making the puzzle pieces. So I suggest not to have 1000 pieces smile

Find out more in this intro article.

Introduction to Jigsaw Puzzles with Kwik

Thanks,

Diane

Thanks! I tried the AV Bros plugin and it doesn't like my Mac/CS6. However, a bit of searching lead me to PanosFX Puzzles Pro and it works beautifully.

Well, it took me most of the day, but I have a working 20 piece puzzle ;-) Thanks for your article.....without it, I would still be clueless.

When creating artwork for the storybook apps, is it better to create it in Illustrator and then import it into Photoshop or do it all in Photoshop?

Hi Metta,

You can create your artwork in any software and import into Photoshop to use Kwik to build your app. Illustrator or Photoshop are both fine. So use the software that you like best.

However, your artwork will be converted to png format when you publish your app.

Even if you import or paste your Illustrator vector graphics into Photoshop as a path or smart object, Kwik will export your artwork as pngs or jpgs, when it build your book app.

Hope this helps,

diane

Thanks, Diane. I find both Illustrator and Photoshop have things that I like and things that drive me crazy. Yesterday I played with ArtRage.......so many tools, so little time ;-)

Inkscape seems to be very popular and free. But only for Windows.
