How To Use Content Aware Fill In Photoshop


We all have photos where we wish things were different. Maybe it’s impossible to get a clear shot of a beautiful building or there are power lines reaching as far as the eye can see.

If you want to remove objects like these from an image, Adobe Photoshop will perform a lot better than Lightroom in most circumstances. In fact, it’s still the best in the business when it comes to pixel-level adjustments.

There are, of course, many ways to remove objects in Photoshop, but with the prevalence of AI in today’s photo editing world, Photoshop’s new content aware fill workspace is adding a lot more control to what used to be a fully automated process.

The tool is by no means perfect – especially when there’s a complex background – but if you hate making time-consuming selections for object removal in Photoshop, the content aware fill tool can potentially save you a lot of time.

Let’s take a look at how it works and when to use it.
