Did you know what you can upload files into Cricut Design Space? Whether you did or did not, we want you to know that it is so easy and fun. Watch this video below to see exactly how to do it.
Uploading Within a Browser
On the left side of your window, you have a bar full of fun options. At the bottom of those options is a cloud with an arrow in it and it is labeled upload. This is the button you want to click to bring in your own designs and files.
Once you click on it you will see three things. First, you will see the option to upload an image in one of our supported file types (.jpg, .gif, .png, .bmp, .svg, and .dxf).
Second, is the option to upload a pattern fill, again with our supported file types (.jpg, .gif, .png, .bmp).
The third is the ability to see all the images you have uploaded previously and select them for a project if you would like.
Now if you choose to upload an image your next step will be determined by the type of file that your use. If you use an SVG, with the cut paths already defined, then all you do is save and you are good to go. Any other file type you will need to clean up (ie erase the background, crop, etc…) before you can save and use.
And there you go! It is that easy. Check out our blog post on uploading images on iOS for more information on using your own images in Design Space.
Show us projects with images you uploaded using #CricutMade.
