I'm currently working a remake of my logo where I want to bisect 2 letter on an angle, very much like what you've done. I also want to insert a red chili pepper (created in Ps) between the bisected letters. What's the best format for the chili pepper file to be in so I can manipulate and perfectly place it? Thanks in advance.

However, I mainly work with photoshop and I've tried my hardest to duplicate what you're doing here in PS and it is just not working. I'm ready to destroy my computer. Is there any way someone can give me the equivalent of PS for this tutorial? I've tried looking up Text Slicing tutorials for photoshop but none of them are as concise, or really giving me the effect I'm looking for as this one does. Thanks in advance!

Reply AH RANG KIM says: October 3, 2018 at 2:55 am Hi. I really enjoy your tutorial. But whenever I try pathfinder divide and ungroup them, they dont divide themselves and move as a group. It drives me crazy. By any chance, does pathfinder never work?
