Photoshop :: Content Aware Fill - How To Sample From Small Area
Jun 30, 2012
Is there a way how to sample from small area and then apply content aware fill to the much more bigger area? For example - there is an object on a table. The object fills 90% of the image and the table 10% image. Now, I just want to delete the object. But that doesnt work with content aware fill, because the area around it is much smaller.
Is it possible to fill an area with content-aware using the paint bucket tool? i have been able to fill the exact area I would like to be replaced with a general swatch. perhaps it is possible to create a swatch which uses the content-aware filter?
I have a 32 Bit HDR image in Photohsop CS6 and I tried using content aware fill on a section and it gave me black, but when I went to a PC and did it works fine. Why is there is a issue with it between OS's?
Mac OS X Content Aware Fill Edit: Windows Content Aware Fill Edit:
I have tried unsuccessfully to get Content Aware Fill in CS5 to work as advertised in the dozens of tutorials I have watched.CAF seems to drag in stuff from all over (even if I protect it in a mask) the background.
ı am given this structure consists of frames made of splines and outer surface in mesh.As seen in the image some part of it is sliced out which I need to fill. Since it is an architectural form, I need to do this as perfect as possible.I wish there was a command in Max works the way "content-aware fill" command does in PS.is there?
I just upgraded to CS6 64 bit under Windows 7. I used content aware fill and the spot healing tool on CS5 under XP with no problems. Now under CS6 they leave a smudge. For example, if the is a spot on a vein of a leaf, now, instead of removing the spot and filling in the line of the vein I just get a smudge the size of the spot healing brush.
Content aware fill now leaves a smudged and obviously poor result.
I've got a webpage footer to edit and I don't have the .psd file so I'm trying to use content-aware to take out an unwanted part. Problem is, the background isn't one solid color and the area where I'm making the edit has a definitive color change...it's an actual line dividing the footer into two sections. So, whenever I do the content aware fill it doesn't keep that line or the colors the way they "should" be.
Is this a situation where having the .psd file is a must?
URLs....I could use these almost daily and doing by hand takes ages where these specialized filters perform the given task in seconds with near perfection. But Photoshop is a bit too expensive and i never really liked GIMP for some reason. However i do like Paint.NET a lot (my primary image editor on all my systems) and would really like to see these features in Paint.NET.
I'm trying to use content-Aware fill to enlarge a photo into different aspect frame. The subject is in pool, surrounded by a large area of water. I've put the image in to the larger aspect ratio canvas, with a green solid background behind it, then merged those two layers together as one. I selected all the green and delted using content-aware fill. It did a pretty good job but it's also recreating some of the subject.
Is there a way that I can specify the area that it chooses from, ie the water?
When stitching together a large panorama, the content aware tool doesn't work if the image is >30,000 pixels. When you use the tool on large images (after I have flattened the layers and using the magic wand to select a white area at the top), it runs through the process as if it is going to fill and then after the "fill" window completes, the selected area remains white.
I noticed on some other forum posts that jpg saving couldn't occur on >30,000 pixel width images, so I changed the image size to 29,999 (from ~39,000) and the content fill tool worked.
I often need to remove larger objects like this AC grille sitting on a plain coloured wall:
The brightness of the wall varies over the affected area. There are subtle gradients in both horizontal and vertical direction, so a flat colour fill doesn't work. Content-aware fill produces an unusable patchwork of bits randomly picked up from the surroundings.
So most of the time I've ended up by filling the areas with a flat colour and then using the patch tool repeatedly on smaller overlapping areas to smoothen things.
I'd want an automated way to create a non-linear gradient to match the areas adjacent to the selection.
I have used content aware with some success but today I was using it to remove power lines in front of a building with a deep blue cloudless sky in the background. When I used content aware it lightened the sky to a pale blue, no where near the original color. I sampled the existing sky with the eye dropper but no change. I have used content aware probably 25 times and have never encountered this problem.
I have an image that im trying to remove the black color and have it blue similar to the rest of the image, but for some reason i cant change it iv tried using content aware when getting rid of it but nothing happens, im not a photo shop so i thought ill ask here to see my image is attached
My content aware feature stopped working. It worked for about 6 months and then stopped functioning correctly. I tried deleting and reloading the software, and this also did not work. I select an area to fill and choose content aware and it will only fill it partially.
I am unable to post a capture of what this looks like. Basically, when I try to utilize content fill..the result is a semi filled section. It looks as if it glazes over the selection..leaving it visible but partially filled. This happens regardless of the selection size, area of the photo etc.
My knowledge (lack of, really) with content aware scaling is that 1st you create a new layer of the background and then rescale accordingly. I did the following: -
1- Created a 2nd layer 2- used quick selection tool on my main subject ( a person) and named it. 3- deselected the selection 4- Edit menu --> Content aware scale 5- resized it to something smaller (chose my previous named selection channel). 6- Pressed "Enter"
The result is that I can now see 2 images; the smaller sitting on the larger. What now? All I want is the smaller image. If I throw away the original layer what I end up is the new layer with the white and gray default background showing as part of the image (which ends up being printed as well or if saved looking as is with the grey-white. Is what I should do the obvious--cut out via cropping the un-needed (gray-white) part?
Recently my content aware feature stopped working. It worked for about 6 months and then stopped functioning correctly. I tried deleting and reloading the software, and this also did not work. I select an area to fill and choose content aware and it will only fill it partially.
