Learn how to upload images to Cricut Design Space with our simple, one-page and easy-to-follow Cricut Cribs!
Cricut World can be a daunting place for beginners. From machines to blades to materials – there’s a lot to learn!
And then there’s Cricut Design Space…a whole new frontier of fright!
But fear no more! Our Cricut Cribs are designed with the beginner in mind, and they’ll walk you through everything you need to know to become a Cricut pro.
All of our Cricut Cribs can be found on our Cricut Tutorials page. We will be adding new Cribs weekly, and over time, we’ll have complete tutorials for Design Space and every Cricut machine.
How to Upload Images to Cricut Design Space
Step 1 – Open a new project
Once you’ve signed into Design Space, click on the New Project button (there’s also another button in the upper right corner).
Step 2 – Click Upload
Click the Upload button located at the bottom of the left side-menu bar.
Step 3 – Click Upload Image
Cricut Design Space is compatible with JPG, PNG, BMP, SVG, GIF or DXF files. But since we work with JPG, PNG, BMP and SVGs, our Cricut Cribs will focus on how to upload these image types. To learn how to upload SVGs, please visit our How to Upload SVG to Cricut Design Space tutorial.
Click the Upload Image button in the upper left quadrant of your screen.
Step 4 – Find the image you want to upload
You can drag & drop your image (JPG, PNG or BMP file) into the indicated space, but I prefer to browse for the file and upload it from its folder. Click on the Browse button to open a search folder.
Step 5 – Select your image (JPG, PNG or BMP files)
Once you’ve navigated to the folder containing the image you want to upload to Design Space, click on that file and then click Open.
Step 6 – Select the image type
Choose the image type that best suits your uploaded image. When in doubt, select Complex. Click Continue.
Step 7 – Modify and clean up your image
Using the Select & Erase tools, modify and clean up your image, if needed or as desired. Then click Continue.
Step 8 – Save your image
Select Save as a Cut Image and then click Save.
Step 9 – Select uploaded image
Your uploaded image will now be displayed alongside other recently uploaded images (if any). To begin working on that image, simply select it by clicking on it, and then click Insert Images.
Your image (JPG, PNG or BMP file) is now on the Canvas, and you’re ready to go!
So what happens now?
Well, from here, you have a ton of possibilities, and they are the subject of our other Cricut Cribs!
Remember that all the Cricut Cribs can be found on our Cricut Tutorials page.
