You can use your own images created in other programs with Silhouette Studio. The Silhouette Studio software program is able to use external images that are in a basic raster image format, such as PNG, JPG, BMP, GIF, and TIF file types. These files can be opened through the File > Open option.
Once in the software, these image types need to be converted into a cuttable design with lines present for the Silhouette cutting machine to recognize as cut. The Trace feature is included in the software for this purpose.
The Trace panel can be found in the right-hand side toolbar, or by going to the Panels menu and selecting Trace. Options are provided in this tool to trace imported images in order to create cut lines.
Please note that Silhouette America cannot support or guarantee results from files not offered by our company. Not all images are designed in such a way that they can be traced well for cutting purposes.
For supported ready-made designs, you may visit the Silhouette Design Store.
