Content Aware Fill (The power of Zeus!)

I have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting...and I finally got my hands on Photoshop CS5. Why did I want it so badly? Three words...

Content. Aware. Fill!

It's easy to use, super duper cool, and comes in both Photoshop CS5, and Elements 9.

Here's my cute Little Man...when he was still little:)
He looks like he's up to something...anyway, mommy's Macbook Pro power cord is behind his head. Making for a not so nice picture:( Until...content aware fill:)

Now it's an easy fix. Bring the photo into Photoshop, it's a good practice to duplicate the layer so you don't edit on the original (Ctrl+J (Win) / Command+J (Mac))

Now, use the polygon lasso tool
to select the area you wish to edit.
Next, click Edit at the top menu, and then click Fill. When the dialogue box comes up...
...simply click Content-Aware from the drop down options in Use: and click OK. What happens next...churn, churn, churn...and poof!
I only had to do minimal clean up with the clone stamp, and healing brush tool.

Is it perfect? No...Is it way better than what I used before to remove unwanted objects...You bet!


  1. That is truly amazing. I had no idea they even sold stuff like that to the general public!

  2. Holy shit!!!! That's freaking magic!!!!!!!!!

  3. I have been wanting this upgraded version forEVER for this very reason.
