making a puzzle in indesign

Good Day,

Is there way to do this in InDesign:

Have a single background image (jpg or PDF) which you draw a puzzle pieces on top of using the Pen Tool (properly closing each of the pieces).

Then, embed that bottom image as positioned in _each_ of the puzzle pieces so that it can be 'broken up' as individual pieces, but retain the image, as positioned?

This would save LOT of work

Currently using CS3


RE: making a puzzle in indesign

If you double click the background image so that the image is selected (you'll see a brown frame when it's selected). Copy or Cut the image out of the frame.

Then remove the background image frame.

Now select each jigsaw piece individually and choose PASTE INTO from the edit menu.
