The Scale, Mirror, and Rotation Adaptation tools can help.These tools tell Photoshop how to resize, tilt, or flip the reference point to fill the gap.You don’t have to be exact with the selection — in fact, it’s probably better if you get a small portion of the background in the selection instead of selecting along the exact edges.With the object still selected, open Photoshop’s new Content-Aware Fill tool, which opens in a new window. Note: To use the new version of the Content-Aware Fill tool, make sure you’ve updated to the latest version of Photoshop CC.
Finally, check your output settings from the drop-down menu.Once the Content-Aware Fill window opens, you’ll see your photo with some green on parts of the image. Make sure the “Show Sampling Area” option is checked.) The green area indicates the reference area, or what you want Photoshop to sample from, to fill in the gaps where an object was removed.Photoshop will use whatever pixels reside in that green reference area.For example, to patch a hole in the leaf image above, the only place to take a sample is from the opposite side, but the lines on the opposite side are going in a different direction.By using the Mirror and Rotation options, Photoshop can fill the gap with the lines in the leaf pointing in the right direction.
Removing an object in a photograph is one of Photoshop’s most valuable tricks, but it often requires a bit of finesse and a lot of time to master.
