# How to Play Picture Puzzle

This is a puzzle that sees the figures in the horizontal rows and vertical rows and changes the cell's color.
Some pictures will appear when you finished solving the puzzle.
You can only change the cell's color by clicking on the cell.

In the beginning, the cells are all the same color. The numbers show the length of the colored cells.
For instance, number 2 has two units of length with no space.

Let's have a look at the horizontal row of "9".
This puzzle has 10 cells width. That means the row of number 9 should have only one cell blank. At the moment, we do not have enough hint of position of number 9. Then we can change the 8 cell's color at first.

On the vertical rows, there are three 2s that have one colored cell already.
This puzzle is 5 cells high.
That means these 2s cannot reach the top cell or the bottom cell.
If you double click (or press shift key and click) on the top and bottom cells you will see they are marked with an X for your convenience.
The cell marked with an X cannot be a colored cell.

The easiest way to solve this puzzle is to find bigger numbers first.

We have already found number 9, so we will solve the number 7 next.
This row should have three blanks. But we do not know on which side of No.7 they should be put. So we will change only the color of four cells at the moment.

If there are more than two numbers on the horizontal or vertical rows, we have to make at least one blank cell between the colored cells.

Please have a look at the picture on the left. There are two numbers "1" and "3". 1+3=4 and we need a blank between numbers.

So that we can color the cells like this. Do not forget put the X mark between "1" and "3". You do not have to put this mark always but it helps you to solve.

Next, we will find the rows which have more than two numbers.

This row has a X mark. On the left side of X mark, there are four blanks.
On the right side of X mark there are five blanks but five is not enough to place two numbers "4" and "1" because we have to put at least one blank between numbers.

Therefore we can decide the cells for number "4" are on left side of X mark. Look at the vertical row of number "4". There are already three colored cells. Let's decide which cell we can change the color, on the top or bottom? The lowest horizontal row, there are four "1"s.

We have to make blanks between numbers so the bottom cell of "4" should be marked with X.

Without doubt, the top cell should be the colored cell.

Now, we have two cells colored on the top row.

We can put X marks on left side of number "2" because there are no numbers to the left side.

We have not finish the big numbers in the vertical rows.
There is another number "4". On this row, there are only two blanks.

So we can change the color of these cells.

The picture is appearing little by little.

Next, we will finish the cells on the left side.
There are two "2"s in the vertical rows. One is already finished.
Another one has one colored cell.

Then we will change one more cell's color.

The number "9" is then also finished.

Let's finish the number "7" on the horizontal row.
On this row, there are already five colored cells. We can change two more cells and finish here.

On the right side, there is number "2".
There are only two blanks at the top.

We almost finished.

We can find the remaining blanks for number "3".

Now, we have solved this puzzle! Congratulations!
