Uploading images in Cricut Design Space 3 is quite easy! I am sharing this post as a part of the Cricut Ambassador Program, but all opinions and thoughts are my own. This post contains affiliate links, which do not cost you extra, but helps support this site and bring future Cricut tutorials.
One of my most popular tutorials on this site is How to Upload Images in Cricut Design Space. This post uses DS2, which has now been phased out due to flash errors. Design Space 3 is a great upgrade. I share a tour of the new site in this post. The basic steps to uploading images are still the same, but the screen does look differently. Today I’m sharing an updated tutorial with screenshots to showcase How to Upload Images in Cricut Design Space 3.
I found this FREE Have Faith File over at The Hungry Jpeg. After a long time of searching, I found The Hungry Jpeg to be an excellent site with an easy to understand commercial license. If you are interested in creating Cricut items to sell, be sure to check out The Hungry Jpeg for your font and image needs.
I downloaded the Have Faith file. It came with an SVG, but I’m uploading it as a PNG (image file) for the purposes of this tutorial. If you are using SVG files, check out my post How to Upload SVG Files in Cricut Design Space.
To begin, open Cricut Design Space and click “Upload.”
Cricut Design Space will give the option of uploading an image or using the image as a pattern fill. I talk about pattern fill in the post DIY Printable Magnets. Click “Upload Image.”
Drag and drop the file or click “Browse” to find the file.
The image will appear, and you can select the Image Type. Each image type has a description. Since this image is black, it will be a simple image.
You will also be given the option to remove parts of the image that you do not want.
Once you’ve selected the image type and cleaned it up, the image will now show in your uploaded images.
You may now insert the image into your design grid.
Cricut Design Space makes it easy and walks you through each step. It is much more user friendly to download images than other brands of similar software that I have used in the past.
