Create sliding puzzles for your web page. WP-jqPuzzle will automatically turn your images into a full-blown sliding puzzle.
To use it, just put [jqpuzzle img=http://www.mysite.com/mypicture.jpg] in a post, updating the path for the image, of course.
Other options are available. This WordPress plugin is based on the jqPuzzle script by Ralf Stoltze.
