Welcome to our Photoshop in 60 Seconds series, in which you can learn a Photoshop skill, feature, or technique in just a minute! 

This time around we're looking at Content Aware Fill. Whether you are editing your own photo or working on one from Envato Market, this automated feature can save you precious retouching time!

Content Aware Fill

There are several tools in Photoshop designed to help remove unwanted objects from an image and replace those objects with choice pixels from other portions of the image. Most of these tools require manual strokes. But the Content Aware Fill feature can automatically sample pixels from the area surrounding a selection and seamlessly fill that selection with new pixels. It seems almost magical! 

If you've got just a minute, I'll show you just how it works.
