This morning Adobe showed off one of the powerful updates that are coming to Adobe Photoshop next year. Photoshop’s Content-Aware Fill, tool, which allows you to fill a selected portion of an image with content sampled from other parts of the frame—essentially it’s a way to move distracting elements from a photo— is about to get smarter. The update promises to make it easier to get realistic results when eliminating unwanted elements from an image.

A new version of Photoshop’s Content-Aware Fill tool will make it much easier to eliminate unwanted areas of an image. Adobe

The current version of the tool works well with simple images, but the revamped version will use Adobe’s Sensei AI and make the process of erasing and replacing much more fine tuned. The new version will be accessed from the Edit menu in Photoshop, has a new section called Sampling Area Options that will let users choose from Auto or Custom selections.

Adobe’s Photoshop Product Manager, Meredith Payne Stotzner, walks through the new features in the video above, and from the looks of it, it seems that this already powerful Photoshop feature, will be a lot more precise. Check out what it can do in the video above.
