Content-Aware Fill - Photoshop 2021

Content-Aware Fill - Photoshop 2021

Adobe Photoshop’s Content-Aware Fill command was designed to help users remove unwanted objects or distracting elements from your photos as easy as possible. Simply by drawing a selection around an area, Photoshop can instantly replace it with new image detail from surrounding areas.

Try this

  • Once you open photoshop, you can drag and drop the image into the document.
  • Hold the Shift key to avoid distorting the content and drag the corners or edges until it is the desired size.
  • Now you can take Lasso Tool to draw a selection around the object you want to remove.
  • Now we must right-click the selection and click “Content-aware fill”.


In case the “Content-aware fill” option is disabled or grayed, when you right-click the selection:

  • open Layers property
  • right-click the layer
  • Select the “Rasterize Layer” option.

Now you will be able to right-click the selection and select the “Content-aware fill” option.

It will show a dialog box with the result, from where you have to click “OK” button.

Before you click the “OK” button, and if you wish to add more areas to the selection, for example, if you want to remove the shadow, you can use the Lasso Tool to add that part to the previously selected area.

Click “OK” and the newly selected part (the shadow) will be added to the removal area.
