I stand corrected... I was misled by "load the image" and mistook it for
having to load an additional image.

So the sequence of operations is:

- convert the image frame to polygon
- select both the image frame (polygon) and the jigsaw shape
- Item > path Tools > Path Operations > Result is the area where the
  shapes do not intersect (subtract will probably also work)
- convert the resultant shape to image frame
- load the image

Great job! I'm really impressed!
