Photoshop Tip: Content-Aware Fill

Photoshop Tip from Photobacks:

Using Content-Aware Fill


The newer versions of Photoshop include "Content-Aware" tools, allowing you to easily edit or fill areas of your photo considerate of what's in the scene. Take a look at this sample...where we want a wider canvas for the pup. First, expand your canvas size (PC: Ctrl+Alt+c // MAC: Cmd+Option+c). Then, select the empty canvas area, such as with the Magic Wand Tool (w). Next, go to the top menu, click Edit > Fill... In the pop-up box, under Contents, next to Use: select Content Aware. (Blending below should be set to Normal and 100%.) Now, click OK and watch the magic! ...Well, some results can be magical, others you may have to fine tune with a healing brush or other adjustments, but this should give you a nice jump on recreating empty space in your image. And, it especially works well when filling small areas. Also note, if you're using layers, you can select transparent areas of a layer to fill, making sure you have that layer selected before filling. Give a try and let us know what you think of Content-Aware!

I hate to rain on someone's parade but the expanded image shown is horrible to the point that I wouldn't show that to anyone. What you are trying to do can be done with a couple of different techniques that would work. Sorry.

I uses Content Aware when my panos aren`t lined up properly and parts of the image are missing aloso tom remove objects.Be careful not to do a large part of the image as it might not work as you like,in that case try a smaller selection.There are lots of tutorials on youtube.

Why give comments and then apologise? Could you not promote some positive suggestions as to what you perceive could improve this photo?

This wasn't a thread where someone was asking how to improve a photo.

Might not be the best example, but it was a good tip and starting point for people to know how to use this feature.
