Uploading Image and SVG Files to the Cricut Design Space

To bring your art to life, you need to understand cutting machines and the associated software and take advantage of all they offer.

This tutorial will explain how to upload files, including your own images, into Cricut Design Space.

SVG – This stands for scalable vector graphics. SVG files give you the ability to layer by color with various materials like cardstock, vinyl, felt, etc.

Types Of Files To Use

DXF – Similar to SVG files, but I do not recommend them because they do not save with the same content data as SVG.

Types Of Files To Use

PNG or JPEG – A PNG is just like a clipart image. Clipart images are flattened designs – meaning the colors are blended and you cannot separate each layer by color.

Types Of Files To Use

Open Design Space and click New Project. The canvas workspace will open.

Step 1: Select New Project

The workspace will show a grid with a menu bar. Select the Upload button at the bottom of the Design Panel to your left to upload an image.

Step 2: Upload Image
