Troubles spanning an image over multiple panels in an Artboard

Hi,

 

I am trying to create an artboard for Instagram that seamlessly spans over multiple slides. I am using a template that I downloaded from a tutorial that I found. In the video I watched the person explainging does not have the same issue as me, so I'm trying to figure out what is happening on my end. When I bring in a photo or object I cannot get part of it to be on one panel and the other part to be on the next panel. I assume there is a setting that I am missing here, but I can't seem to figure it out. Below is the link to the tutorial I watched and I have also attached a screenshot of the issue im having.

Based on your screenshot, it appears that you have the Slice Tool selected.

 

I can't see from your screenshot if your various frames are actually separate artboards. Your Layers panel would show if they are separate artboards. You may have the Artboard names turned off via the View menu.

 

If you'd like to span an image across artboards, then I would recommend the following:

  1. Create the artboards and position them so that the appear side by side (it looks like you may have them set up like that already)
  2. Place the image and position it so that it spans the artboards (it should appear above the artboards so that it's not actually on an artboard yet)
  3. Duplicate the image for as many artboards as you have (it looks like you have 5). To duplicate them, you can select the image, go to Layer > New > Layer Via Copy, Ctrl (Windows)/Command (macOS) + J, or go to the Layers panel menu and select Duplicate Layer...
  4. Drag each duplicate to each artboard. The artboard will show the portion of the image based on the initial placement of the image

That video is all about artboards, so I'm unsure where slices come into it.

 

Slices and Export > Save for Web (Legacy) have limitations. Alternatives are mentioned here:
