There are big changes coming for Adobe’s popular “Content-Aware Fill” tool in Photoshop. It’s already a key tool for removing backscatter and underwater elements in an image—but if this two-minute sneak peek video is any indicator, then we are in for some significant improvements.
Essentially, the Content-Aware Fill tool is getting its own workspace with a bunch of options that users can fine-tune to achieve the best result. One key change is a real-time preview that will show the final result as you tweak settings. This should help limit the number of Content-Aware Fill fails.
For images with some symmetry, the new Mirror checkbox will be a useful setting to use a sample of the reflection to cover the space. It looks like the new tool will be a lot of fun to play with and improve the effectiveness of Content-Aware Fill. No word on the exact release date, but we expect to see an update with the new tool sometime in the coming months.
