chadwicktl: Thank you so much for this video. I just bought a new Silhouette Cameo a
couple of weeks ago and I am using You Tube videos to teach myself. Thank
you for your help! It is greatly appreciated.

Pink Diva: OMG, you saved my life.. I had an image and I was trying to import & cut
for my baby shower in Jan... almost had no hope.. thanks a million now my
new baby will have many special things and I can import and cut what ever I
like.. I cant thank you enough xoxoxoxo
Dilly Dally: thank you for a very simple and easy to understand video :-) but one thing,
I didn't have to remove the white space around the image
Sue M: Good tutorial. Learned a lot & I have been wondering how to do this. Thanks
Margaret Wilburn: The only thing the Designer Edition can import that the free version can't
is an SVG file. Regular JPG and PNG files can be imported into the free
Margaret Wilburn: Yes, you can do this in Illustrator but my thought was so few people have
access to Illustrator I didn't think it was something to talk about. I
actually do a lot of my file prep and file creation in Illustrator.
LaceyTracy76: AWESOME THANK YOU SOOO MUCH! TRACY!
MsPAttynet: Does importante works online with the design edition?
Deb Crowley: I followed this tutorial exactly, but when i did "crop", the entire image
Margaret Wilburn: No you can't separate the colors. This is just a graphic. If you are
looking for one to cut from different colors you should look for an SVG
papersoulsxo: Let me just say,THANK YOU! I have learned SO much about my Silhouette in
the past 24 hrs by watching your videos than I have in the 3 years i've
owned it (granted, studio's all over RoboMaster!) My daughter just turned 3
so i'm trying to *finally* learn everything, and your videos are perfect. I
know i'll be looking at these quite often! One question. Have you ever used
the sketch pens? I'd love to watch a tutorial on them! (My printer is out
of ink and no $. Love to figure out an alternative!)
Mary Dewitt: go to google or somewhere...nah where all gonna bing it
Mei Ho: does this importing feature of free graphics work only on silhouette studio
"designer edition" or does it work on the free version as well?
Margaret Wilburn: Yes, you can import JPG and PNG files with the original or Designer. The
only thing the Designer imports that the original free version doesn't is
canbe842: Hi Margaret, Wonderful tutorial - much appreciated! I've gone through all
the steps you provided and everything works great. Except . . . I'm trying
to eliminate the white space from around the image AND inside the image
(between fan blades - see image at: the graphics fairy dot com
/vintage-clip-art-electric-fans-steampunk/ ) Is there a way to ALSO
eliminate the inner white space? I've not been very successful at trying to
figure this out. Thank you SO much. Sobai
Johanny Merejo: I just got the silhouette machine and my main reason to buy was that i was
able to cut things I already had print out- is that possible?? I I print an
color image and I want the machine to cut it for me is that possible?? if i
save it as a SVG file?? I usually print from another printed not at home
and my concerned is that if it is possible to do..pls help!! thanks
Margaret Wilburn: I am using a Mac and Silhouette Studio Designer Edition software.
mommybean68: Thank you so much for this easy tutorial! I just got my Cameo and I was
frustrated until you made it easy for me to "get". I'm going to save this
for reference in the future!
Vane CZ: Thank you so much! Great tutorial... It's amazing how people is willing to
share their expertise with us... Congrats!
A'nnamaria Davis: I was understanding everything until you got to object modify crop, how do
I select both section of the image, I must have click on this video 10
times are more, and I'm not getting it, call me dumb I'll accept there is
something I'm missing, I'm new to the silhouette my white background is
still there TFS A'nna
MixeDesigns Lorena M: Great information! thanks for sharing =)
Matt Piasecki: im pretty sure you can edit the image in illustrator then just export that
image into the silhouette software

Kathleen stott: thank you for a fantastic video, I followed step by step and got the same
result, I have always wondered how you got rid of the white box, now I no
Christelle Lindewall: I so wish I had seen this video yesterday! Funny thing, it was a mickey
image that I used with the white area surrounding him... Not any more!
ine10: When you are on the Google search page you can click on the left hand side
and sort by size. That way you can sort by all the large image sizes with
just a click! :) Thanks for the tutorial!
UnderoathCHK: You are a lifesaver. This was the first thing I needed to do when I got my
Cameo. Very easy to follow. :)
CraftyKazzaH: You can send your image to your printer from the silhouette program, you
have to make sure that you have the 'registration marks' option ticked,
your printer prints these marks on the page borders and that is what the
silhouette cameo machine reads when it is going to cut out your already
printed image. I suggest you go to the silhouette page in youtube and view
their tutorials. I found this one helpful as their tutorial didn't mention
white space or getting rid of it! Enjoy
Lisa ThePurplePlace: What a great video - thanks for sharing all your wonderful tips/hints!!
Margaret Wilburn: If your entire image disappeared...you must have missed a step somewhere.
If you have the original graphic plus the tracing grouped...and you have
not added anything to the tracing line/cut line as far as line weight or
fill...then it will crop correctly. Try again and see if you missed
Sydney Leinen: I am trying to get some information on how you get the "true" image of
mickey, not just the silhouette. I got the whole importing it thing but it
will just print the outline correct?
vanessa guzman: Does anyone know if when you print this, does the cut out keep its color or
is it in all white?
Melba Hernandez: Thankssss, love this tutorial.
Jesus Gonzalez: Can I cut my own drawing? How complex cut the machine is capable of
Margaret Wilburn: If you print to a color printer, it prints what is on the screen (minus any
red outlines that do not have a "line weight").
Mrsnaisa4002: Oh my! your tutorial was so great. I take down note while doing it also. It
is really helps alot on the beginners
hot5envy: Thank you for your helpful video. Much appriciate it. ( From Australia )
Margaret Wilburn: Thanks for the hint. I had no clue that could be done. Just didn't look at
the choices I guess.
Sally Ortiz: I just want to add, sometimes it's helpful to trace in the gray area, so
you can see the white parts. If the background comes off in pieces you need
to delete all of them. I stack them and select around them all to delete.
Use "select all" to check for any stray pieces.
Margaret Wilburn: I found the image and did a trace. It is not hard but fairly tedious. This
had way too many parts in the middle to easily grab just the ones you want.
It also had open spaces around the plug...anyway I deleted unwanted stuff,
fixed the plug edge and messed with the nodes a bit. I have the image
done...but it won't let me put in my email in any form. It wouldn't even
let me put in my ISP name.
hallieshouse13: This happened to me too ?
Margaret Wilburn: Found I could only put in my email by putting it in the video
description...which I did. How annoying is that???
Khagan99: Is the software you are using a silhouette software which comes with the
Margaret Wilburn: If you are only getting the outline you did not do something. When I print
I get the entire Mickey and it cuts on the "outline." The outline should
not print. It is a cut line. If it prints you have it set with a weight of
line, like one point or something. The line weight of an outline should be
zero. It shows on the screen but does not print...this is the cut line.
Margaret Wilburn: Not sure what you are trying to do that you can't do. There are several
ways to select everything...one is "Control A" which, in most programs,
selects everything. Another way is to click on one item, hold down the
shift key and select the second item...another way is to draw a large
imaginary box with the select tool around both objects, being sure to go
very wide so you include all parts, and it will select both objects.
Sometimes it pays to learn the basic commands in graphics programs.
Margaret Wilburn: If you have a drawing of your own that you can scan into the computer and
it has solid edges and is traceable...the machine can cut incredible detail.
my1607life: Great tutorial!!!!!!!!!! that was awesome help, but was it cut short? I was
wondering how do you remove the red out line before you Group together?
