A while ago Photoshop released a new feature called Content Aware. I didn’t write about it when it was released but it’s basically black magic that remove things from photos and patches up the area using data from the surrounding area.
It’s rather incredible.
To use Content Aware fill:
Select what you want to remove from the image using the lasso tool.
Go to Edit > Fill (Or just hit Shift F5).
Content aware should already be selected from the drop down, but if not, select it.
Watch the magic.
Sometimes it struggles depending on how complex the fill is, but most of the time it gets pretty close. Bit of a touch up after and you are good to go.
