Adobe announced the next version of Photoshop will feature content-aware fill, a new feature that can save photoshoppers many hours. As you can see in the demonstration below, content-aware fill can be used to remove lens flare, remove objects from your photo, or even to generate missing pieces of cloud or landscape.
Graphically, the results are stunning. In one demo Bryan O’Neil-Hughes, a product manager on the Photoshop team, used the tool to first remove lens flare, turn rough litter-strewn grass into a perfectly manicured lawn, and even remove trees seen in the distance.
In the next demo he removes a dusty road from a desert scene. The tool automatically fills the replacement area with appropriate ground and shrub cover. Finally, he takes another desert scene -- a cloud sky with bits on the top and bottom missing. The tool replaces these bits seamlessly.
