Uploading Graphics to Design Space

  1. Download the file to your computer. (Most likely it will get put in a folder called “Downloads.”)

  2. If you’ve received a “zip” file (the icon is of a folder with a zipper on it), the contents are compressed, and need to be uncompressed. Right-click on that file and select “Extract All.” The computer will ask where you want to put the extracted contents, but again, it usually defaults to your “Downloads” folder.

  3. Now that the files are ready to be used, start up Cricut Design Space. Once the program is open, click on “Upload” at the bottom of the left-side menu. (Its icon is a cloud with an arrow pointing upward inside it.)

  1. Click on the “Upload Image” button

  1. Drag and drop the file you wish to use, or click Browse:

  1. Locate the unzipped file, and choose the SVG you wish to use, and double click to open.

  2. Click Save:

  3. Single-click on an image, then click on “Insert Image” in the lower right. It will put that image into the Design Space canvas, and you’re ready to go!
