In this tutorial, I walk you through step by step in Making JPEG Files into Cut Files in Cricut Design Space. I hope you find this helpful when using your Cricut machine!
To start open Cricut Design Space and open a new project. Then click on “Upload Images.”
Then Click “Upload Image”
Next Click “Browse”
Choose the JPEG file you want to use for your cut image, from your computer or device.
When it’s uploaded to Cricut Design Space, click on “Simple Image” if it’s a simple image like the one I’ve uploaded here, and then Click “Continue”.
If it’s more complicated simply click on the appropriate complexity of the image you are working with.
Next choose the “Select and Erase” icon that looks like a wand.
Then drag your mouse into the white space of your image until the cursor turns into a cross beam, and simply click in the white space.
The background will turn a checkered blue and white indicating it’s now transparent.
Once your image is ready then click “Continue.
Next click on “Save as a Cut Image”, and then click “Save”.
Choose the saved cut image file and then click “Insert Images”.
The cut image is ready to be resized to fit whatever measurements desired.
Click “Make It” when ready to cut.
Cricut Design Space will continue giving directions until your cut project is complete.
