Learn How: />How to Use Content-Aware Fill in Photoshop Content-Aware fill is a simple way to remove objects from your images. Learn how to remove anything from a photo in a couple of simple steps! What is Content-Aware Fill? Content-Aware Fill is located in the Fill dialog ‘Edit - Fill’. Content-Aware fill works by analyzing a photo and filling in a selected area with similar texture and color from the rest of the image. How to Remove Objects To remove an object from your photo using Content-Aware Fill, create a duplicate of the background layer by dragging it onto the new layer icon. Next, select the object you would like to remove using any selection tool. In this example, we use the lasso tool to make a rough selection around the dog in the image. Once selected, go to ‘Edit- Fill’ and choose ‘Content-Aware’ from the drop-down menu. That's it! whatever you selected should be gone! If the tool doesn’t do a perfect job, make a new selection and try it again - often times it will do better the second time.

This video could have had half the time and content and it would have been all the pertinent info you need. Skip to 3:35. Short handed : create background copy, use selector of preference on content and use fill > content aware

I keep hearing "Content Aware Phil". Like there is some guy there who is aware of the content around him.

I've been watching Aaron present these Phlearn lessons for quite some time now. I've purchased a handful of his lessons, but was somewhat disappointed because I felt that Aaron talked too fast and rushed past the explanation of certain things.  In these last few Phlearn lessons, though, I've noticed a remarkable improvement in the way Aaron is teaching. He has slowed down and takes time to clearly explain what he is doing.  Might make me interested in purchasing new lessons from Phlearn!
This video would be so much better if Aaron's name was Phil.

Dont say " Shift+Delet " instad Shift +F5 for Fill
Fionàn O'Kelly
another great episode...!!
This does not seem to work on Smart Objects unless you rasterize the duplicate copy (layer) you create. Or am I missing something?
Thank you very much for this thorough tutorial
Jim Grady
Worked for me - good level, clear presentation. Thanks.
SleepDroid Studios
I use that tool all the time. It does grab some things to put in there that I don't want, but overall it really does well. Great video. You just helped a ton of people with this one. So much faster than rubber stamping.

I user to love Aaron's episodes. He was fun, he made somewhat stupid jokes and sometimes it was quirky, but Aaron and the episodes were good because they had this thing called "humanity". Now somebody probable made the mistake of doing a market research. Go read about Jobs opinions on that, or just consider IBM. Aaron got replaced by an android on drugs. Yuk. The episodes are slow and the explanations are for 5 yo. I only really go to terms with the incredibly crappy photoshop interfsce because Aaron was fun. It's not anymore. Please change the slogan to "Welcome to Phlearn, where we make photoshop and learning boring and lame". Last one to leave please shut down the servers. btw, if the market research tuned put a need for "further explaining" or something like that, open a second channel, like PLHEARN BASICS or Back to Basics.... do a market research for the name... and ask the Aliens to send The Real Aaron back to Earth. There are enough people with no brains and no creativity here.

Hi Aaron, I know you already did an album cover, but can you please show us how to do an album cover with the front more photographic instead of artsy like the last one (like a photograph of the artist.) Also show us a design of the back with the list of songs. Thank you so much Aaron, you're the best!!

I selected area to fill with cantent aware but it’s not showing fill in edit ‘’ what can I do ?
Charlie Wright
It would be great if you didn't use keyboard shortcut's the whole video or at-least tell us the short cuts for the people starting out...
Dave Dee
Quick tip If you want to do this feature with a larger area or over text, simply make your selection then "select > modify > expand" I use 4 pixles maximum This will expand your selection out and enable a cleaner dissolve since the selection is not right up against the border of what you are doing.
I love your videos, but you need to content aware fill that gap in your beard underneath your lip
yo please help me; content aware is always greyed out
Thanks that was helpful.
Mike Godard
Thanks for the keyboard shortcut! Make selection --> Shift-Del.. So useful!

Could you do a tutorial on "History"? Using the History fill as well as the history brush and other relevant items?
Sam Toby
The effectiveness of the Content Aware Fill tool depends on the type of image . On cleaner backgrounds , it works fine . On detailed images , it works less than perfect . This tool is also available in Photoshop CS6 Essential & CS6 Extented .

I just want to thank PHLEARN for their very helpful videos! Thumbs-up!
the animated thumbnail is so perfect... it's perfect for a 2016 video...
Content Aware intruded in October 15, 2008 when Photoshop CS4 was lunched. It has many futures among other: Content Aware Fill (which we saw in this clip), Content Aware Scale (to scale an image none proportionally without distorting it). Keep on the good work.
Fernando Alves
Probably there's someone out there better than you at PS, but by this time and searching for references on youtube you're are simply the best!!!! Man, you work like Grand master on it. thanks for all your knowledge shared here!!!!
Sarah Greenup

Hi Phlearn, I've been using content aware for removing object, I wonder if there is any way i can keep the background of that removed object clean. It becomes really distorted after. I am just a newbie in photoshop. Thanks!.
Vivek Singh
Content aware fill is a great tool but I find it extremely difficult to remove things from a busy background with many things overlapping each other without destroying the background. Is there a way to remove things from a busy background without destroying the BG???
Spirit Lion
