Those of you who are familiar with Adobe Photoshop CS5 probably know about the ‘content-aware fill’ feature of it. This magic feature allows you to automatically fill in a hole when an object is moved from an image. How it is done is that Photoshop makes its best guess to find the filter image that would best fit in the hole after the object is moved. The current content-aware tool is indeed remarkable but still sometimes doesn’t give the best possible alternative for the empty spot. Adobe Photoshop CS6 will fix this issue. The upcoming version will give the photographers the ability to fill the empty spot with their own chosen fillers. Photoshop Senior Product Manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes said,
“What I want is the ability to drive this and tell it what to put where. People have been asking for this for a while with the patch tool, and that’s just what we’ve given them.”
Another worthy of notice feature is the ‘content-aware move’ tool that can even work with unrefined selections. In the video that O’Neil Hughes posted on youtube, he showed some features of Photoshop CS6. Using the content-aware move tool, he centered a coin-operated telescope. After the telescope was moved, the tool intelligently fills the background with relevant filter. Another impressive example was that of moving a woman standing on the grass and infront of a house, to the other side of the picture. After that he fills the blank spot with grass to make it look more natural. He also made use of the ‘extend’ feature to increase the length of a roof. Watch the video below to see the sneak peek preview of Photoshop CS6.
Adobe Creative Suite 6 is set to release in the first half of 2012, probably in June. We have seen several videos officially posted by Adobe showing the sneak peek previews of the upcoming software. Full set of features will most likely be announced before the set release date. If you haven’t already used Adobe CS5.5 you might wanna try it before you get your hands on the newer version when it is available.
