Tutorial – Photoshop: Content Aware Fill

Here’s a quick six step process on how to clean up your photo from any obvious distractions, zits, blemishes, background wires, poles, people, etc.

My inspiration was after we did an assignment in class to erase a dog from a photo and I really enjoyed it. In all the photos you edit you’ll find people have zits and things that people won’t want in their photos. It’s also important that you don’t go overboard because theres a point were you’ve edited too much.

First thing is opening your photo that needs fixing into Adobe photoshop.


Second step is duplicate your layer in case you screw up your photo you don’t want any permanent damage to your photo.


Third step select the lasso tool from the tool bar or clicking “L”. Then select the area that needs cleaning up.


Fourth select Edit-Fill and then make sure content aware is selected and click ok. And your image no longer has those distractions.


Fifth if your not liking the look you can use the healing brush tool or patch tools as well to touch up and blend in the photo to make and final touches the photo.

Sixth and most important is save and export your work so you don’t lose everything you’ve just worked on.
