Step 1:

First, open the Cricut Design Space app on your computer. Now, go to the top right corner of your screen and click on the ‘New Project’ button. 

You can also click on the ‘My Projects’ button if you have used this app before. It’s important as you will upload a new file. 

Step 2:

After clicking the ‘New Project’ option, a new canvas page will be opened. Check, there’s a sidebar with some essential options on the left side of your screen. Locate the ‘Upload’ option and click on it to upload a file as per your preference. 

Step 3:

When you click on the ‘Upload’ option on the left sidebar, a new page will be opened. There, click on the ‘Upload Image’ button. Then, click on the ‘Browse’ option to browse files from your computer.

Step 4:

After uploading a file from your computer, you have three options to choose from; Simple, Moderately complex, and Complex. In this case, click on the ‘Simple’ option and check the edges are clean enough.

Step 5:

Now, you can edit the image as per your requirement. On the other hand, you can also add elements from the left sidebar. If the image is okay, click on the ‘Apply & Continue’ button at the bottom right corner of your screen. 

Step 6:

When you are done with editing, Cricut Design Space gives you a chance to compare the cut image with the print version. This step is very essential for taking your final decision. Make sure you check if everything’s okay.

From here, you can upload the image by selecting and giving the file a name. After doing this, select the ‘Upload’ button to start the process. 

Step 7:

If the previous trick didn’t work and the edges are still not clear on your image, you can go for another option. In most cases, the issue can’t be resolved with the Simple option, especially when you designed the image by yourself. First, upload the same file by following the same steps. Now, select the ‘Complex’ option.

Step 8:

Now, you can see the canvas. On the left side of the canvas, you can see the ‘reduce colors’ and ‘color tolerance’ options under the Manual section.
