Hi,

 

How can i take out the pieces to different files? 

The pieces are seperate by transparent so i have tried the magic wand but it didn't work, i have also tried to fill the transarent in different colors so the magic wand will maybe do it, but it didnt work.

Is this ^^ the full-sized image? If so - there are parts of the dividing lines which are not transparent. This is probably why the Magic Wand is failing (that and the clear border which can be easily cropped out).

Start over and run the plugin with a line width of 3.
Magic Wand the transparent region at the top.
Make a new layer and Paint Bucket fill the selection.
Deselect.


Make a new layer, Magic Wand the new layer, and run the Outline Selection plugin at default.

(Leave Preserve canvas edges unchecked.)
Merge layer down.


Magic Wand inside one of the transparent puzzle-piece shaped areas,

make the image layer active, copy and paste into a new layer.

 

You now have one puzzle piece on its own separate layer.
Copy/paste into a new file.


Repeat for the rest of the puzzle pieces.
