How to change the size of objects in Cricut Design Space
Hi Cricut-ers! Welcome to Cut N Make Crafts. I'm Sumayyah and I own Craft Your Memories. I am a contributer here at Cut N Make Crafts! Today I will be sharing "How to change the size of objects in Cricut Design Space."
There are two ways to change the size of an object that has been uploaded onto Cricut Design Space or from the canvas. First start Cricut Design Space and open one of your previous projects or enter a new project if you will be uploading a file or using an image from the canvas. In this example, I will be starting a new project. Once on the canvas, click shapes’ on the left side panel bar
Select any shape that suits your preference. I will be selecting the heart.
After the heart has been added to the canvas, it is now time to change the shape. Check if the image is in proportion. This can be checked by viewing the lock at the bottom left corner of the image or in the edit bar near the top.
It is important to check if the lock is present since if it is unlocked the image will not be proportionate once the dimensions change.
An important thing to note is of the arrows in the bottom right corner of the image. When locked, a dual arrow will appear, indicating that the image will change in proportion.
When unlocked, 4 arrows will be visible, which represents that the image won’t be proportionate if the size changes.
The first method to changing the size is to drag the arrows. The dimensions can be checked on either side of the image or by viewing the size tab in the edit bar at the top. The current dimensions of the heart are 3.3” W x 3.1” H.
Drag the arrows to the size of your choice. I am going to make the heart smaller by dragging the arrows. It is now 2.8” W x 2.6” H.
The second method is to use the size tab in the edit bar. Change the numbers in the width and height according to your preference. This time I am going to unlock the image and change the width of the heart from 2.77” W to 3” W.
If you have more than one image on your canvas, select the ones that need to be changed for size by either clicking on the image or tapping on the image in the layers bar. These methods of changing the size can be applied to all images on Cricut Design Space.
