10 Second Edit Using Content-Aware Fill

I love using Lightroom for a majority of my editing and organizing, but use Photoshop for all my retouching. My favorite feature in Photoshop is Content-Aware Fill. I love using it to remove distractions, stretching backdrops, and even filling in empty areas of a panoramic image thats been stitched together.

This tutorial is so easy and I love that she included the keyboard shortcuts to speed up things up even further! Read - "10 Second Edit Using Content-Aware Fill"

Here is a quick tutorial on how I use Content-Aware Fill to edit this image in less than 10 seconds as well as some keyboard shortcuts for Windows and Mac.

  • No.
    01
    Make your selection

    I prefer using either the marquee tool or the lasso tool. Be sure to select slightly beyond the area you want to replace for better blending.

    Keyboard Shortcuts (Mac & Windows) : Marquee Tool (M), Lasso Tool (L)

  • No.
    02
    Fill

    I prefer short cuts so I hit (delete) for the Fill Dialog Box to pop and then (enter) to execute the command. Takes seconds.

    You can also right click and choose “Fill”.

  • No.
    03
    Deselect

    Keyboard Shortcut Mac: Cmd + D
    Keyboard Shortcut Windows: Ctrl +D

  • No.
    04
    Repeat

And finished! Hope this quick tutorial helps speeds up your retouching!
