Re: Content Aware editing

I'm a retoucher at a studio working on commercial fashion. This is an answer to my team's prayers! No longer will denim and patterns be such a pain!

I don't work too much on restoration, though I have. Incredible is the only word I have...

Our output time will simply cut in half or more

Re: Content Aware editing

Hello everyone I'm one of the Pre-Release Adobe Beta testers for CS5 and I really don't think anyone is going to be disappointed because this version has some really nice tools for Restoration & Retouching. Although I've been a member of Retouch Pro since 2005 I haven't been to active but hope to change that right away. Here are a few tools I really like in CS5 and I'm sure there are many more that have yet to be discovered;

1. Content Aware Fill & Content Aware Healing - This is a major one here.
2. Refined Edges Tool when selecting all or part of an image is another major one.
3. Puppet Warp will let you do amazing things.
4. Noise Reduction in the new Camera Raw is also great.

I also had a good long chance toplay with CS5 in pre-release but of course was unable to say anything until now. I fully agree that those four features are the cream of the new features. The choice to upgrade to CS5 will be an easy one.

It really is that good.

Re: Content Aware editing

I will agree with the comments from my fellow beta testers. I do a certain amount of scenic type photography, ever work on taking a set of power lines out of the tree tops?

Content aware healing makes me want to go out and shoot some just so I am able to use the tool!!!!

Re: Content Aware editing

I'm thinking that it will work just as well on removing cracks and other damage on old photographs.

Re: Content Aware editing

Also being a beta tester, I would concur that the new features will help a lot of the folks here. Content aware fill while very impressive, does take some time to get it to work the way you want it to. I can see if very useful for face retouching in keeping skin textures. Also puppet warp will, I think change the way folks reshape faces. It may not be a smooth to use as liquify, but with SO you can go back and edit. Refine edge is great, but for refining a mask, it is destructive so make a dupe layer for using it.

Re: Content Aware editing

I was wondering how well the refine edges worked -- wondered if it would get rid of the need for masking plug-ins. Sounds like maybe not.

Re: Content Aware editing

The Refine edges is pretty dang good ... Have you seen Terry White's Blog Video?

http://tv.adobe.com/watch/photoshop-...-cs5-features/

And having used it ... its easier to use than the Masking plugins. May not quite be there, but 90% of the users will likely be able to do just as much without the plugins now.

I always work on dupe layers, but what do you mean about it being destructive?

Re: Content Aware editing

There is a setting called decontaminate colors that gets rid of fringing; however, it does so my bleeding the unmasked area into the masked area. In the example, the first image is the original, the second is the final with the mask, using CS5's content aware fill, but you still need to mask to use CAF close to subjects. The last image is the layer with the masked turned off. You can see where the image bleed. Of course, I'm new to this too, so I may have been doing something not quite right, as there doesn't seem to be much bleed near the mane.
