Re: Content Aware

You'll soon learn to sail through jobs like this. Nearly all the elements required to fill the 'gap' exist already and you just need to identify them, then cut n paste (& rotate). Make a clean bit of wall by cloning out the music stand and then copy it above the chair. The awning struts can be scavenged from the good side or just extend the right side struts. The hand and shirt can be constructed with bits from the two foreground players. Flip the chair and do a soft airbrush blend restore. Hard to see exactly what's going on with the textures because of the lo rez but you'll nail it.

Re: Content Aware

The clone tool is the way to go here as others have stated... Content aware will not do the job. I used the pen tool to limit the clone areas with selections.

Re: Content Aware

Hi Guys,
Can anyone advise me about the crosshair that is located near the brush when in the Clone Stamp tool, it seems to bring in the area of where it is located and bringing in unnecessary details that I don't want, it seems to position itself at different distances from the brush as well.
Help much appreciated.
Lofty

Re: Content Aware

Use "view clone source" to activate the clone source panel. The box marked "show overlay" turns the overlay on and off and the box marked "clip" limits the overlay to the brush area.

Re: Content Aware

Personally I find the "show overlay" mostly useless, and usually a bit laggy/slow.

The crosshair "near" the brush is probably your clone source.
The clone stamp tool works by you holding down the alt-key and klicking where you want to clone (copy) from. When you now paint with the clone tool it will copy from where you clicked (that area will be shown using a crosshair).
The healing brush tool works the same way, except it will try to blend what you are cloning into the surroundings.

Use a soft brush for cloning (to avoid visible edges), a hard brush for healing (to avoid "color bleeding").

Re: Content Aware

Hi,
Is there a way to stop your image moving around when you zoom in on it?
Many thanks
Stephen

Re: Content Aware

Windows: Edit > Preferences > General
OS X: Photoshop > Preferences > General

Uncheck "Zoom Resizes Window". That will stop the entire window from changing size by itself all the time. You could also prevent it by going to one of the fullscreen modes (Cycle with 'F').

You might also want to toggle "Enable Flick Panning" or other options you see that you liker/do not like...

Re: Content Aware

Hi,
This is where I am at with my first retouch photograph, I am now running into the difficult areas and would like opinions on what I have done so far and how to finish off this, i.e., rebuilding the arm and guitar etc etc.
Many thanks
Stephen
