Bulk Importing Files Into Silhouette Studio Library

Did you know Silhouette Studio gives you the ability to import multiple files into your library at the same time?!

Bulk file importing into Silhouette Studio is no question a huge time saver. Honestly, I wish I realized this feature was even an option a long time ago!

This is definitely something that will come in handy if you are one of those people like me who hoard cut files - especially from places like The Hungry JPEG where you get a lot of files. Importing them one by one into the library is time consuming.  Imagine if you could simply save the files to your computer and literally drag and drop them into Studio. You can!!

Let's use The Hungry JPEG's Ultimate Autumn Craft Bundle as an example here because there's a whole lot of files you're going to want to import and cut with your Silhouette.

First purchase the bundle, which comes with commercial use files, and download them onto your computer.

Open up Silhouette Studio. If you haven't already, open your library and create a Commercial Use folder and a The Hungry JPEG subfolder. This is where you're going to store the files from this bundle and other The Hungry JPEG files you purchase.

Now navigate on your computer to where you downloaded those files from The Ultimate Autumn Craft Bundle

Then use your mouse to drag and drop the files directly into the Commercial Use or The Hungry JPEG folder.

Watch the number next to the file name to make sure it increases by the same number of files you had selected. You can see the number of files in that folder has now updated from 1 to 12.

And that's how you bulk import files into your Silhouette Studio library!

Pretty easy! I should also point out this works on standard Silhouette Studio and all upgraded versions as well.
