Over the Thanksgiving weekend, I decided to try out the latest version of Photoshop CS5. Through my experimentation with this software, I was made aware of their latest feature called ‘Content Aware’.
The ‘Content Aware’ feature allows the user to select an undesirable portion of a photograph and have it replaced with similar pixels from the adjacent pixels. It is not a perfect science, but for small item removal or filling in the sky, it works perfectly. I tested the feature on a stroller in a photograph from the opening of the Pueblo Justice Center. The first image to the right includes the stroller and the second shows it removed with Photoshop CS5’s content aware tool.
