Create Split-Image Effect With Photoshop and Illustrator

Before getting started with Divi, you need to have a set of images ready to upload. Since this is a split-image effect, you need two images that fit well together. You’ll need two different image sizes: 960px wide by 1200px tall for desktop, and 600px wide by 1200px tall for tablets and mobile.

Step 1: Select The Images

Select two HD images of your products.

Step 2: Erase The Background

Erase the backgrounds to create cut-outs. You can use any program you want. But here’s a step by step guide for Photoshop.

Step 3: Open a New Project on Illustrator

Open a new project in Illustrator, 1920px wide by 1200px tall.

Step 4: Add a Vertical Guide.

Add a vertical guide through the center of the empty canvas. Make sure it’s right in the center.

Step 5: Import or Place The Cut-Out Images

Place both cut-out images on the canvas.

Step 6: Start Visualizing The Split

Make two duplicates of each image. Use the crop function to split them in half at different spots. First through the center, and then a bit less and a bit more for the duplicates. Now you’ll have three split versions of each image.

Step 7: Finalize The Effect

Using the different split cut-outs, find the best composition for your images. Make sure that the straight edge of each image is right on the central guide on the canvas. Try changing the size of the images to make them fit better. Remember that the canvas has the size of a fullwidth screen so adjust the size of the images accordingly.

Step 8: Crop Half and Save

When the design is finished, get rid of the extra cut-outs. Double-check that the straight edge of each image is touching the center guide. Create two new artboards and resize them to fit each side, making sure they are separated right at the center guide. Export for web, one artboard at a time and save as .png. Now, you have two different images. Both 960px wide and 1200px tall.

Step 9: Resize for Tablet and Mobile

Resize both images to 960px wide by 1200px tall. Make sure you only crop out the transparent background, don’t touch the image. I did it on Photoshop by changing the canvas size with the anchor on the side of the image.
