What is Content-Aware Fill?

Content-Aware Fill is located in the Fill dialog ‘Edit – Fill’. Content-Aware Fill works by analyzing a photo and filling in a selected area with similar Texture and Color from the rest of the image.

How to Remove Objects using Content-Aware Fill

To remove an object from your photo using Content-Aware Fill, create a duplicate of the Background layer by dragging it onto the New Layer icon.

Next, select the object you would like to remove using any Selection Tool. In this example we use the Lasso Tool to make a rough selection around the dog in the image. Once selected, go to ‘Edit- Fill’ and choose ‘Content-Aware’ from the drop-down menu.

Thats it! whatever you selected should be gone! If the Tool doesn’t do a perfect job, make new selection and try it again – often times it will do better the second time.
