One way is to search for puzzle templates remove the white background colour in Word or Photoshop and lay the template over top of your favourite photo.

http://www.google.ca/search?q=Puzzle+template&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=g06&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&prmd=imvns&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=TRp7T9TZHoapiQK8rY0a&ved=0CC0QsAQ&biw=981&bih=918#q=Puzzle+template&hl=en&client=firefox-a&hs=i06&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&tbm=isch&prmd=imvns&source=lnt&tbs=ic:gray&sa=X&ei=Txp7T9n6NuPMiQKbprEj&ved=0CBQQpwUoAg&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=7d516fb36c6656c1&biw=981&bih=918


Or you can search for puzzle generators.  Try this one:

I lay the template over the picture in powerpoint and then save as a png.  Afterwards, I cut each puzzle piece out and again save as png.  When I say cut, I actually erase everything around the puzzle piece and make the outside transparent.  It is time consuming but it can be done.
