i have been doing research and reading forums here and i want to know if i have a few things right on the software for this.
i want to be able to use my own images, most are jpeg files.
if i buy the SCAL 2.0 i do NOT need inkscape and can convert my jpegs to svg files directly, correct?
if i use the SCAL instead of the cricut cartridges, the cricut has to be attached to my computer to run the images?
is it risky (virus-wise) to buy svg files online?
lastly, why do people buy the expensive cricut cartridges when the SCAL seems so much more flexible and cheaper in the long run. I mean this question seriously...i fear i am missing something.
