In one of my earlier posts, I walked you through the steps for uploading and cleaning up a coloring book style image in Cricut Design Space.  If you have not already master this process, you can see that full tutorial HERE.  This is a great way to start to work with images you find online, but sometimes you cannot find a black and white coloring book style image for what you want to make. But what about uploading images with more than one color to Design Space? That is exactly what this tutorial is for!

Uploading Images and Creating Layers with Cricut

In 2024, Cricut changed the way we upload images. I have a new video on my YouTube channel that explains it all!

Start with Uploading Images that are High Quality

Finding an image with crisp lines and no shadows will always be easier to convert to a cutting file.  I recently had someone ask me to help them convert this image into a cutting file in Cricut Design Space.

Creating Layers with Cricut Design Space

She wanted to cut just the U without the green background, so we need to create three layers for this image . . . one white, one green and one orange.  To do this, you will need to upload the image three times, and focusing on cleaning up and removing everything you don’t want cut for each specific color.

Here is a video that shows how I achieved this, and then stacked the colored layers back together to create the final image.

I hope this helped you understand the process for uploading images with more than one color into Cricut Design Space. It you have any questions, please leave them in the comments so I can get back to you!
