Create your own Nonograms

Be creative!

If you don't see a button "Start Editor", Java is either disabled, not installed or outdated.

How to create a Nonogram

First, choose the desired Nonogram size and click on "Start Editor". You can create black-and-white Nonograms from 5×5 to 20×20 cells. By the way: The size can be changed later on.

Draw the solution picture. The left mouse button paints black, the right mouse button paints white. (Alternatively, instead of the right mouse button, you can use the left mouse button while holding the Shift key.)

Check for solvability. Before the Nonogram is playable, it has to be examined to make sure it has only one unique solution. Often, a drawn picture results in a Nonogram which has number hints that do not lead clearly to the solution picture. In this case, suited spots in the picture have to be changed. The program shows you all cells that cannot be solved in a unique way. In case your Nonogram is (almost) completely unsolvable, starting points are missing; try to place long black lines in suited places in the picture. As a general rule: The more connected (horizontally and vertically) the black squares are, the more probable it is that you get a solvable Nonogram.

Play the Nonogram yourself to test it. You will find out if the Nonogram is fun and if you should make changes in certain areas of the picture.

Publish your Nonogram. Enter a title for the Nonogram and enter your own name. Wait some seconds while the Nonogram is being transmitted.


Start with a 5x5 Nonogram to learn to create Nonograms. Then work your way up to larger Nonograms step by step.

Avoid – if possible – empty or completely black rows or columns. Those are trivial to solve.
