Why can’t I upload images to Cricut?
A common reason why Cricut images are not loading is that they are not really embedded in the file. Files in the DXF or SVG formats are layered into separate colors, and so you cannot upload them to Cricut. So, make sure you export the file as either a JPG, PNG, GIF, or BMP file.
Why is my SVG file so big?
The SVG file is bigger because it contains more data (in the form of paths and nodes) in comparison to the data contained in the PNG. SVGs aren’t really comparable to PNG images. One solution is to rasterize the logo at the required size, and export as PNG (or JPEG even).
