Take a look at the new Photoshop CS5 feature, Content Aware Fill:
- Start with a photo with an element you wish to remove
- Use the Marquee Tool to select the undesirable area:
- Go to Content Aware Fill: Edit/Fill/Use: Content-Aware/OK:
- Finished Image:
Play around with you selection. Different selection sizes and shapes create different results
Note: Content Aware Fill works best with areas having a unified pattern, color or texture. The computer matches the selected area with surrounding pixels. The tool works best when you alter small sections at a time. Have fun experimenting with this time saver. Hope this inspires you to use Content Aware Fill to make quick photo edits to your graphic or web designs.
