    So, after downloading getting Photoshop CS5, I found a new feature known as content aware fill. I tried it out and (after figuring out how to use it) I found that it really is a revolutionary feature!

    Here's a video:



    I think that this could really revolutionize how we graphic designers create our works and save us loads of time in doing so.

    Hehe. I played around with it a couple days ago. Pretty fun and it's easy to use too. I hope it'll be a useful tool for me.

    That's always the point of the demo videos, they find specific scenarios where it will actually work to beneficial effect, but I'm betting most people will get very differing results.

    It would be nice if Adobe could spend half the time developing UI improvements and adding settings and preferences to bring the software up to this decade's standard as they do producing these these gimmick features. It took them how many years just to add docking windows? Yet if I relied on Photoshop (which I don't because Paintshop Pro is superior in most ways that count) I would be constantly digging through sub menus to reach my most accessed tools, and a mess of windows to adjust their settings. It's amazing to me how I can operate PSP with nothing but my Intuos3 hotkeys, yet Photoshop requires no less than being tethered to a keyboard and memorizing 200 shortcuts to operate.

    Right now my major gripes with CS5 is they somehow botched the smudge tool--hopefully a symptom of the pre release but who knows. Other tools like the gradient fill are still in desperate need of an overhaul. They still improved very little outside of the new gimmicks, like consolidating resource files to My Documents so I don't have to dig through subdirectories for relevant files. And they divided the brushes menu into two, so now I could enjoy twice the hassle of frequently adjusting brush settings.

    Also their attempts to encroach upon Corel's Painter seems lackluster and insulting--like we're supposed to wait for three more full versions before they'll really get around to it.

    Yeah. I had to use it to paint out an animation rig. I painted with the clone tool around the ends of the rig and then painted over the rig with the content aware tool tool to make the rest of it disappear. The tool looked like a band aid. maybe its a different tool.

    And btw in the video, that post removal looks waaaaaay to nice. im calling fakes.

    Sorry about the above post i sound like a dick. I really didnt mean to :[​IMG]:

    Pretty useful feature.. However, it's really only good for extremely high resolution images which may end up being shrunk in the long run.
    Small detail work such as cutting out wires/mesh in photos works pretty well too, but taking out an entire building or a boat still causes some irregularities.

    Sure it's not perfect but imo, it's more of a for-fun, if not, quick and easy touch up tool (which is all it really is). Nontheless, adobe has some pretty crazy ass algorithms to do stuff like this.

    It's very interesting and fun to play around with.

    It's pretty good. I used it to remove the cock from David Cameron's head.

    You can see where that speck touches his hair, there's a bit of a blur that Content Aware messed up. Its not that great of a tool in my opinion but still helpful.

    Still, Im gonna wait for 4 months before I upfrade to CS5. After all, CS4 still gets things done for me
    And I wont upgrade just for that.

    --------------
    Is CS5's size like almost 1GB??
    Portable is just 60MB

    It was supposed to be about how its helpful but not perfect, i tried it again uses other tools and it took a lot longer. Using a combination it really speeds up a process.

    It's not created to make images look flawless. It's just a tool to fasten the overall editing process. :>
