Cricut has brought upload functionality to the Design Space app on iOS!
You can now import images directly through the app, although SVG upload is not yet supported. There are image manipulation functions available too helping you get the image uploaded quickly and easily.
Android users are still going to have to wait for this functionality.
Here’s a video walkthrough on how to use the new Upload functionality!
UPDATE YOUR APP NOW!
Since the introduction of Design Space 3 the upload functionality has been removed and the ‘backdoor’ solution for uploading images on iOS is no longer available. Use the Feedback option in the new Design Space menu to communicate to Cricut that the iPad needs this functionality in the iOS app OR via a webpage method. Your feedback affects Cricut’s priorities for new app functionality!!
Biggest drawback from the offline iOS app for Cricut Design Space had been the inability to upload images. A workaround has been found so you may upload SVG files to Cricut Design Space
To upload SVG images into Design Space on your iPad or iPhone do the following:
Save your SVG files to one of the many cloud storage providers for example Google Drive (used by many people in the Facebook groups!), OneDrive or Google Drive.
Go to this web address on your iDevice:
Follow the usual steps to upload an image the only difference is that you will be prompted to take a photo, view your pictures or find from other locations such as OneDrive.
You may have to press More… and configure alternate sources for OneDrive, Google Drive or Dropbox
Once you have selected your picture it should be displayed and then you can upload into Design Space.
You can then go back into the Design Space app on your iDevice, look in the files and see that your new SVG file has been uploaded and is ready to use.
There is a helpful video here too that shows the whole process for those that prefer the more visual approach! ScrappyDew Creations for this awesome video how-to!
