I want to create a slashed thru effect by dropping a purchased .ai template into or over an existing object. Both the existing object and template have transparent backgrounds. Should I use Illustrator or Photoshop for such? Which would yield the best effect? Thank you!
That depends on how exactly the template has been built.
Thank you, Monica.
I purchased the template from Adobe within their Adobe Stock program.
Because I am a novice I have attached the information regarding it below.
I certainly appreciate your input. Perhaps, there's information in this screen shot that might assist in securing my execution of laying it/combining it to the graphic I included in my orignal post? - Bob
You could for a start just overlay the scratches over the text and see what happens.
Just from the screenshot it's impossible to tell how it's been built.
Sorry about the delay. I am hopeful that the issue was fixed. If not, please check out this video tutorial ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM3L2svp89Y ) and let us know how it goes.
Feel free to let us know if you still need assistance. We'd be happy to help.
