Making Puzzle Pieces with PPT?

Mar 16, 2016

Hi! I want to make puzzle pieces from a photo (I viewed Tom Kuhlman's tutorial found here:, but I can't get the puzzles to fill with the image - the area AROUND the piece fills with the image (see attachment).

What am I doing wrong?  Is it the puzzle piece image that's the problem?  Does anyone have the pieces Tom used in his demo now that MS Office clipart is gone?

Thanks - the actual tutorial is a different one (I've been searching through so many search results that I get them confused).  Tom did a tutorial of a slide background of the articulate logo in a picture and used the same puzzle pieces to demonstrate "fill with background image".  That's the one I'm trying to replicate with the screenshot I captured.  I don't understand why the outside area of my pieces are what are showing the background and not the pieces themselves.  I'm thinking it's the graphic of the piece that's the problem?
