This is one of those features that many of us wish was added years ago. It’s common for photographers to fill in holes from one photograph, of things they want to remove, from sections of another. I’ve done it many times myself to fill in undergrowth in forests or even rebuild entire moss-covered walls behind my subject on location. But it’s a pain, and takes forever to do well.
Shown off at Adobe MAX, Adobe’s new Scene Stitch technology aims to solve this. Essentially, it works like Content Aware Fill. You select an area you wish to replace, and Photoshop figures out what to put in its place. Instead of looking only at the loaded image, though, it will look at a huge database of images. Then presents several possible options to fill the space.
