      Photoshop content-aware build made easy

      The truth is that using this tool is very easy and once you do it for the first time it will stay in your memory almost immediately. The first thing to do is obviously to open an image in Photoshop and once inside, with the selection tool you have to blend or select the section of the image you want to modify.

      Then select the option " Edit " and then "Content-Aware Fill" , with this the sampling area will appear in the document window (it will be an overlay mask that will be just above the image).

      On the right is where the panel will appear "Fill according to content" , this is where you can select your fill settings, output settings, and sample area.

      Tools to adjust the fill and display areas

      Now that you know how to get Content-Aware Fill options in Photoshop, you can even open or edit PSD file without Photoshop online.

      It's time you learned a little more about the editing that can be done on images. There are various tools within this application, which help us adjust or control the area in which we are going to work, the first one is called "Sample Brush".

      It is used to enlarge or reduce the work area, to increase the area it is necessary to select the option " Add ”, located in the tool options bar. Once you've pressed it, you should only paint over the areas you want to include.

      To do the opposite, it's the same process but this time look for the option " Subtract ” and, once pressed, paint on the areas you want to exclude (you can also increase or decrease the brush size in the section of the same name which is in the toolbar)

      The next is it “Lasso Tool” , this is to change the previous selection that was already made of the fill area. So we can also use it "Hand Tool" , it is useful for scrolling the image preview and the document window itself, moreover, it has a shortcut if we press " H " will immediately switch to another tool.

      And finally there is the " Zoom ", which simply allows us to increase or decrease the distance at which we see the image, to better appreciate it, for example, or in more detail. With this you already know how to fill content-aware in Photoshop, but there is one last step you need to learn.

      Content-aware fill settings

      As you had already read, in the section “Fill according to content” you can configure several things, such as: “Show sampling area” , which allows you to see the selected area in the document. Or also, "Opacity", which defines the opacity in the overlay. We can also find the "Color", to designate a color in the document window.

      And finally we have the option “ Indicates ”, which allows us to see the sample area overlap as well as the area that has been excluded (both options are selectable from this same menu).

      Done, with these tools and features you can fill-a-content in Photoshop like a pro, because even if it's little, it's more than enough to work effectively with one of the best design tools.
