Have you ever wanted to cut an image on your Cricut that you couldn’t find in the Cricut Design Space? It’s hard to imagine as with the thousands of images in the design space you might not be able to find an image. This has mostly happened to me when it is a licensed image, like a super hero or princess. Today I’ll take you through the steps of uploading an image file in Cricut Design Space.
You can find a lot of SVG/Image files on Esty or other places that sell SVG files. You can design your own and upload those, however I haven’t experimented with that ( I’ll let you all know when I do). You can also use jpg, gif, jnp, bmp, dxf, or an svg file to upload an image.
Start by opening a new project. Then click on upload images.
This screen will open for you to choose and image or pattern. Click on upload image.
This will bring up the screen to browse your computer files.
This will open your computer files. Find the file you need. Often, when you buy an image from a Esty site it will as different types of cut files. I find svg files have the clearest lines and best cuts. But use what you prefer and upload the image the same way.
Fill in the empty fields. These are not required, but make it easier when you look for your image another time. Then make sure you click to save the image.
Click on the image you uploaded and want on the canvas in the design space. When the green check shows up click on insert image.
Then it will take you back to your canvas and you can change the size and customizing your image if you need too.
This goes really quickly in Design Space and after a few times will become second nature. Now you can use any image you can find! It opens the possibilities even more of the things you can make with your Cricut machine and the Design Space.
I’ll be answering several of the most commonly asked questions about Cricut Cutting machines and the Design Space over the next few months. I would love to hear any questions you have about using your Cricut machine any of the features or questions about the Design Space. You can leave those questions in the comments.
