Adobe added Content-Aware into Photoshop in CS5 in 2010. Wow! It was and is a game changer. Over the years since its initial inclusion, Content-Aware tools and features have become increasingly powerful. Content-Aware technology is truly magical!
When applied, Content-Aware analyzes nearby areas for color, texture and content to either fill or replace defective or missing areas of an image that would often take many steps to achieve prior to the technology.
For example, the Spot Healing Brush can quickly replace dust and spots often found in digital images when the lens is dirty, or if the sensor has collected lint or dirt. These repairs typically require a simple click. The same Spot Healing Brush can be used to remove power lines, trash or graffiti in a photo. Jet contrails across the sky can also be removed with relative ease.
