I hope you’ve been following along with my Cricut® question series. You can see question 1 here & question 2 here and question 3 here. Annnnnd now we move on to question 4 (which ties in nicely with question 3) ~ How easy is it to upload my own images with the Cricut? Fairly easy! It took me a little while to figure it out, but once I did I wanted to share what I learned with you. So here we go!
As most of you know, I’ve had a Silhouette for years. Annnnd I have a very, very large Silhouette library to go along with that! But never fear you can use most of these images with your Cricut. Let me show you how! First, open up your cut file in Silhouette Studio.
Fill your image in with black.
Then I just did a screen shot & pasted the image into Paint.
Crop & then save your new image to your computer.
Then I used Picmonkey to open my image. I adjusted to exposure & highlights as far as they could go.
You want a crisp black & white image to work with. Play around with it until you get if just right.
For the next part I followed the directions in this YouTube video. Please go watch it!
She explains it so much better than me! Here’s a very, very simplified version:
Upload your image into Cricut Design Space.
Select & erase the background.
Save as a cut file.
You’ll know you saved it right when you see that little symbol after you open it. 🙂
Size it & then send it to your Cricut to cut out.
