Adobe Photoshop’s new content-aware function basically makes “adding, removing, moving or repairing items faster and more seamless.” Plus, “the tool can also do instant-fixes where users manually erase image artifacts or clean up areas in photos, such as removing divots from grass.” Video after the break.

A lens flare covering two different objects — such as part of a woman’s dress and a bench — proves no problem for the content-aware fill feature. Just circling the area and hitting the delete key prompts Photoshop to fill in each area with the appropriate color and texture, matching the surroundings perfectly.
