Silhouette Studio Library File Extractor V1


The entries in the Silhouette Studio library don’t use human readable names; the filenames are converted to numbers. This makes it difficult to see the files.

The files in Silhouette Studio library can store any file type supported by Silhouette Studio (e.g., BMP, PNG, GSD, Studio). Each entry in the library consists of a file type, a preview thumbnail and some user entered information about the file.

All the files downloaded from the Silhouette Design Store ( are first stored in the Recent Downloads folder, but they can be later moved to any user created folder.

The application will extract the original file type, the preview thumbnail and the library file details for each library entry in the Silhouette Studio library.

The extraction produces 3 types of file: -

  1. The original file format that was imported into the library, Bitmap/Raster or Vector file
  2. The preview thumbnail as displayed in the Silhouette Studio software, a PNG bitmap
  3. The library file details (Artist, Description, Category, Keywords), in a text file

The fonts, patterns, and recycle folder are extracted. The folder structure of the Silhouette Studio library is maintained.
