Changing a Scene with Photoshop’s Content-Aware Move Tool

I’ve been playing around with the Content-Aware Move tool in Photoshop CS6. I use this to change elements of a scene. You can get similar effects using the clone stamp, but I’ve found that the Content-Aware Move tool gives me better control in larger scenes. Check out what I did below and let me know what you think!

This is Ali, a woman who loves adventure. I met her at Gasworks Park in Seattle. It was a beautiful day and lots of people were out and about.

There’s nothing wrong with this scene, but I wanted to see what would happen with some creative editing. Using the Content-Aware Move tool in Photoshop, I removed the people and filled in the sky and the ground.

Here’s the final image with the ground cropped out to focus on the subject of the picture.

You can access the Content-Aware Move tool through the icon with the intertwined arrows. The Adapation settings from Very Strict to Very Loose will give you different results.

As always, I’m interested in what you think. Let me know which of these photos you like best by commenting or taking the poll. Thanks, and have a creative day!
