Once you’ve selected and downloaded the graphics to your computer, right click on the folder and select ‘Extract All’.
Then, in Design Space, click ‘upload image’.
Click ‘browse’ and search for the folder in your computer files. The download will often be in multiple formats (SVG, DXF, EPS, PNG or JPG), and I use PNG for Cricut print & cut as the background of the image is already removed.
Select the image and click ‘open’.
Now select the image type. This will entirely depend on the image you are uploading and how much detail is in the image.
You can play around with the options to see how much detail you want to leave or remove. For my image I don’t want any color variation removed, so I’m going to go with Complex.
If you have a PNG file, the background will already be removed and you won’t need to do anything here.
If you have a JPG file, you will need to remove the background. At this point you can also remove any other details you don’t like.
Add a name for your image and some tags so that you can search for it and find it later on. Save as a print then cut image.
2. Size Your Images
Repeat the above process with all your images…it takes a while!
Now I’ve got all my images. I clicked ‘select all’ and made them all 2 inches wide.
Next click ‘Make It’.
My images fit nicely on two pages, and you can check you aren’t going to waste a lot of printable vinyl. If it turns out you are, then you can go back and resize your images.
You won’t need to do anything else at this stage, so click ‘continue’.
