From fixing gaps in a panorama to removing unwanted objects, the new Content-Aware Fill (CAF) feature delivers amazing results, but there are a few tricks to know. Ask the possibleâ”CAF does a great job with reproducible patterns: Sky, sand, grass, stone, etc.; less so with man-made objects. When in doubt, use a small selection and try running it and re-running it; each pass will likely get you closer. Sometimes expanding a selection will help dramatically. No matter what the result, CAF will get you further and faster than ever before.

I’ve gotten the best results making small selections and running CAF two or three times, some times more. Usually a bit of easy clean up using the clone tool and/or healing brush is needed afterward. But, CAF does make it significantly easier to remove unwanted items in a photograph when compared to the old and time-consuming method of manually cloning items. No doubt the next generation of CAF will be even better.
