Adobe Demonstrates Content-Aware Fill in Future Version of Photoshop

Adobe Photoshop project manager John Nack yesterday pointed to a new demo video posted by a member of his team showing off an impressive new feature in Photoshop known as "content-aware fill". The feature utilizes complex mathematical algorithms to analyze digital images and assist users in filling in areas of complex scenes where undesired content has been removed.

The video shows a number of applications for the feature, from simple tweaks such as removing extraneous trash from an image of a park scene to far more complex tasks such as generating realistic looking desert landscapes and cloud formations.

While Adobe has been careful to specify only that the technology is set for inclusion in "a future version" of Photoshop, we have been told to expect it to make an appearance in the next version scheduled for introduction as part of Creative Suite 5 on April 12th.
