HI,


I'm looking to cut out a silhouette of an image I drew. Am I able to scan and and download my own image? I have a cricut mini.

Thanks

Hello! The Cricut machines are cartridge based and do not cut images from other software. I hope that this answers your question!

Just to be clear (I know this is an old thread- just want to clarify for anyone reading this in the future) - you cannot used a scanned image to cut with any Cricut.

Sure you can scan an image, that was not the question. You cannot use the scanned image in the Cricut software to cut with. You can only cut Cricut images (either from their cartridges, or their digital files)

Actually, you can use scanned images with your Cricut. Although you cannot Import images into CCR, Kay {CleverSomeDay} has a great tutorial on using a special program to "see" your image while in CCR and using basic shapes to create a cut file. She also has another tutorial that shows how to cut your printed image using your CCR file and Cricut.

It's a bit more than just importing an image into a software program and tracing it, but it works quit well! BigGrin

i suppose you can make it happen by using some image scanning application to scan your image and save image file in local folder.

How complex is the image you drew? Would you be able to build it using rectangles and circles? If you could, then you can use Cleversomday's method of tracing an image. One of her examples was a clock. If you have something complex, with lots of little cuts, you probably will not be able to do a trace and cut of the image unless you find an image an a Cricut cartridge that is similar and then do some adjustments to that image.

If you are interested in duplicating what you have drawn, then you might want to consider getting a different cutting machine that can use Make the Cut or Sure Cuts a Lot software.

The cricut image library is very dynamic, and after exploring it, many people choose to go with a cricut and purchase cartridges rather then design their own images.

I have the best of both worlds. I use my cricut with my cartridges and have another machine to cut things I have designed.

Some cricut users like scrapalette, can "flex" the cricut and do some amazing things. She's been using the cricut for many years, though and has lots of experience under her belt.

i believe this question is about how to scan in a fixed environment, not just any scanning application.
