Default Jigsaw puzzle effect in Photoshop

Client wants a jigsaw puzzle done, with a different photo on each puzzle piece (no continuity between pieces).

There's a puzzle filter in Photoshop (CS2), but it's just a texture -- I need to create individual puzzle pieces that are movable/removable.

I'm Googling the problem and have found a plug-in at:

http://www.avbros.com/english/products.html#plugins

And I'm sure there are more.

Has anyone got any experience with or knowledge of any such plug-in? Or if there's a better way to do this (Illustrator?)?

Many years ago, I did a jigsaw puzzle effect using a plug-in from the Photoshop 3 Wow! Book CD, but I don't think the pieces are movable -- I think I had to individually select any pieces I wanted to move to delete.

The pieces must be movable, I must be able to use a different separate photo in each puzzle piece, and the pieces need to look 3D (embossed/shadowed edge/etc.).

This client is famous for making changes, so I would rather spend money on a plug-in that does all this automatically than spend hours doing it manually and have the client decide to use different photos.

TIA,

mxh
