"How can I import patterns I find on google into my Studio V3 folder called Patterns?"
It's a good question and one that if you use Print and Cut, especially, you've probably run into at least once.
It's actually very easy to add new patterns to Silhouette Studio, but you must have Designer Edition to do so...you can do so in three easy steps. Search > Save > Drag and Drop.
The first thing you want to do is find your pattern. Remember, a pattern is like wallpaper. Its colors can't be changed and it won't get cut lines around the actual design in the pattern unlike a background.
To find patterns, I usually do a Google image search for something like "Geometric Pattern" and a whole slew will come up.
Pick the one you like and then save it to your computer by right clicking > Save Image As. Name it and then save it to your desktop for easy access. Here's the pattern I went with...
Open up Silhouette Studio > click on your library (on the left tool bar) > My pattern folder.
Now you can simply drag and drop your saved pattern from your desktop directly into the pattern folder. You'll see it appear in alphabetical order.
Now, like I said you do need Designer Edition to add your own new patterns to your My Pattern library. I recommend DE and here are 13 reasons why!
