Content Aware editing

we've discussed this before in RetouchPro, but as CS5 nears its release date, folks might want to take a look at this as regards restorations. editing which is content aware is going to make a number of things quite a bit easier. here's one link talking about all this: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2361800,00.asp

and here's something related from back in 2007: http://www.milkandcookies.com/link/66481/detail/

if adobe has bought or licensed this stuff, or developed it themselves, then we're going to see some very slick stuff in CS5 and specifically some very handy tools for restoration.

think about it and make your comments

Re: Content Aware editing

I have it on good authority that content-aware fill is implemented in CS5.

You didn't hear it from me.

Re: Content Aware editing

Holy Cow!!! I didn't figure there was any reason to upgrade, since I still have so much to learn in CS3, and since it's my first full PS I'm still finding things in it that amaze me. This is incredible though and the thought of how much time it would save, along with the quality of the fill is probably going to be enough to make me fork over the $$$. Can't wait to hear more about it. Thanks for posting Craig.

Re: Content Aware editing

I have noticed that people are saying that GIMP has had this feature for a while and seen videos of GIMP doing the same things as in the photoshop CS5 videos. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2gonFtc1yc

Get the GIMP and do it free! I have tried installing the GIMP and attempting this but am finding the processing very slow. Anyone else got the GIMP and tried it using the plugin http://www.logarithmic.net/pfh/resynthesizer

Post your experiences

Hope this helps

Re: Content Aware editing

here's another: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFEBa...eature=related

i know we have other threads about this in other parts of the forums, but i want folks doing restorations to start thinking about how we can use these new tools. this link shows some scratch removal, very simple and very effective and very fast! so, the healing brush is becoming content aware, which shld help a lot of us out!

post your thoughts, particulary regarding the new stuff and restoration!

Re: Content Aware editing

I do restorations and was immediately aware that it could fill bad patches with good. On the other hand, there would have to be some good patches, and sometimes they are few and far between. The scratch removal would be an incredible improvement on many images, but I wonder how it does on faces and clothes. I think that for the kind of work I do, the content aware scratch/hair removal/healing alone would be worth the price of the upgrade. It would save countless hours of tedious cloning.
