The team working on the next update of Photoshop CC have given us a sneak peak into one of the features that photographers could put to good use soon: content-aware crop #fotomagic
Usually, when you open your images in Photoshop and notice they aren’t quite straight, your impulse is to rotate and crop. The thing is, the program can leave behind white corners and borders, forcing you to go for a tighter crop which means some of the information you want to retain simply goes away.
Now, the software intends to offer a solution. By using Content-Aware technology, Photoshop will be able to fill in those blanks or gaps with content similar to what is found nearby. Obviously, this won’t work in all cases, but should make your work easier if the area you need covered is of a sky or beach.
What other issues do you hope the next update to Photoshop CC will fix? Or, do you have any ideas for brand new features that will help your post-processing?
