Please note that "Snap Vector Tools and Transforms to Pixel Grid" already enabled and I did so much search before I post this. I use Photoshop CC 2014.

First I created a square 400X400 and I duplicate this square

enter image description here

Then I placed the duplicated square under the first one

enter image description here

And then when I transform them both 45° I get this space between them

enter image description here

So how I get rid of this space?

It's an anti-aliasing artifact. Basically what happen on angles or curves when two objects touch, but the software still wants to anti-alias between them.

@Joojaa does a great job of explaining HERE, although that refers to Illustrator specifically.

To correct it... extend one object into the other, so the objects overlap slightly. Or draw a third object behind the existing object of the same color, so that the anti-aliasing is done to a color rather than the white or transparent background.

  • I did that with my project (logo) but the problem is when I resize the logo it will break and it will not be the same look

  • I do not understand "It will break". That is a really ambiguous statement without any direct meaning. "break" how? -- This question may be helpful: graphicdesign.stackexchange.com/questions/73601/…

click on one layer, then go to properties and make sure that you have not got a stroke (this is the gap between the obejcts)
