Removing Objects Using Content Aware Fill in Photoshop

Hi there it is. Time for content aware, fill my second most favorite tool in all of Photoshop and it's a way to magical way rubbish, Say goodbye to windmills but I use it most for magic ng up new sky that didn't exist before. We look at a couple of other handy ones where there's text, it's fused to the background. Goodbye and those birds that we wrestled with in the last video. See you later. Alright, it's quick, it's easy. Let's learn how to do it now in Photoshop. Alright to get started. Let's go to oh five cropping and open up. Content aware, fill 123 and four. We're gonna start at one and we're going to remove this trash here. For the content aware fill to work. You need to have a selection first. I'm just going to use the lasso tool you can make any sort of selection and you can be pretty rough with it. Look at this rough all the way back to the beginning and then hide this magical tool. My favorite tool in Photoshop Okay, content aware. Scale is my main one. This is a close secon...

d. So under edit fill. This is where they hide this magical tool. It'll probably default to contents content aware. So just make sure you click OK. Kickback be amazed. Look at that. The select gone. Just so you know, I'm going to undo and it's very similar. Well, it uses the same technology as your spot healing brush. So there's times where you need to do a selection because it's quicker and easier and like in this case or just grab the spot healing brush, you can see it's set to content aware and you kind of just paint this out. It depends what is easier for you, but we get to the same position. Kind of randomly grab stuff in the background and pile it all in here. Jump to content aware fill too. So I'm going to do a selection here again. I'm going to use my political I want to say polygonal, I'm not sure how to say that one. Okay, one with the straight lines, clicking ones, clicking ones clicking ones clicking ones clicking ones. So I want to get rid of these guys. These guys these are windmills, I know what they are. So once you've got your selection edit, I use content aware, fill so much that I made a shortcut. If you're on a pc, you'll have a good shortcut here. Just check what it is, I can't remember on a Mac, it's some random shortcut that on my computer, opens up something like Itunes or something silly. So I went through and added my own shortcut by going to keyboard shortcuts and making one, you can see I've got shortcuts for content aware scale and Phil because I use it so often. Okay, so command shift Z is my one click OK? And it goes and removes it and sometimes can you see undo undo it randomly grab that and stuck in here and let's put that there. So sometimes it does some strange things to get around that I'm going to undo if you just kind of like I'm gonna minus just a little bit of selection out of this. Maybe a bit of this. If you have a slightly different selection, you'll get a slightly different Phil click. Ok. Hopefully we'll get a tree, cut a tree. I guess my main point is that it's you might have to do a second selection to get a different result. What I want to show you now though is a tool that is really closely associated. I find in these courses, I have two separate tools out so that I guess you can see the definition between them or the different use cases, but there are some tools that have very similar functionalities, but they're hidden in different places. So the spot healing brush, we just showed you there, we did that in the essentials course and we did it. I showed you here just removed the trash. Another really similar tool is hiding underneath The spot healing brush is called the patch tool will do a short explanation here. The patch tool has some other perks that will do in the retouching section. Okay, later on in this course, I think it's section 10 but this tool here is exactly like the content aware except it's a lot more what I call intentional. I can click hold and drag this. Okay, and I can move it around instead of like trying to grab more trees like this guy, I can say actually I want this part and you can line it up perfect and you can see the sky doesn't work until I let go and magics at all. In the select. I've grabbed that specific bit. It's blended the sky. Okay. You can see there's this little bit, I guess I just want to show you that this is the spot healing brush. The patch tool, content aware fill or use a similar sort of technology. Content aware fill though is kind of more randomized so it really depends on what you need to do now what I use it for most is generating kind of new backgrounds. Okay, in this case it's going to be sky. It might be grass waves. Trees, great for nature. I will put some text in the sky so I'm going to grab the crop tool. Just drag it up in the past or in previous classes we use content aware scale that'll probably work. But I want to show you another technique. So I've got a big empty area grabbed by marquee tool. I'm going to overlap it so make sure it overlaps, otherwise it ends up being a nice little line that joins overlapping contended with Phil fill it up and magic and I've got a new sky now I left this one in here because there's a little bit of banding, it's just like a perfect sky. So there's a little bit of obvious kind of banding going on and I'll show you how I get around that. If it's just one or two pieces, you could use the spot healing brush or the blur tool, which is there, there's a lot to do in this one. So what I'm gonna do is I'm going to select a big chunk of it, make sure it overlaps quite a bit copy it and paste it. And with that layer selected, I'm going to go to filter blur and good old Gaussian blur. Cool how much it's up to you. I just want to move it up until the banding. Those little kind of rivers stopped running and click. Ok. The good thing about Gaussian blur is you can see that it's added a bit of a fade. It's not going to work on everyone. But I wanted to I guess show you how I would fix fix it in this case. Often if it's clouds, it just does a perfect job. Look at the last one content aware, fill four. I do this as well. So I'm a certified instructor for Photoshop. Right? So we get given marketing material that we get to use. Sometimes it comes through the official adobe channels. It takes a long time at least. And I see all these cool graphics that they're using and I want to use it straight away. Let's say that I want to use this. I'm allowed to just hasn't come through the official channel yet so I want to remove this. It might be that you've got sent something from a client. They're like, hey can you do this? And you're like the text is fused to it, You can see there's no layers going on, it's actually just jammed onto it. The problem is if I grab the eyedropper tool and pick kind of some part of the blue and then try and fill it, it's gonna be very obvious. Right? So I need that gradient and that's where content aware fill is magic. Content aware, fill, click OK. Goodbye. Text. Content aware fill is awesome. Let's have a little look. Um We did this content will remember this one, continue to wear. Move so we move these guys and reshape them. I just want to show you this one because you don't have to do them one at a time. Okay, I'm gonna switch to the other last suit tool so you can see holding them the plus key and I'm just drawing really rough guys around here, let's say instead of moving these guys, we want them out like you ruin my shot bird, you're out of here to make lots of selections. Content aware fill. Kickback. Just just amazing job. Alright, that's it for content aware fill. What an amazing tool. Super easy to use. It's just hidden under edit and Phil we know where it is now though. I'll see you in the next video.
