With Photoshop’s Content Aware Fill tool, remarkable things are possible. Join Unmesh Dinda of PiXimperfect as he runs you through a simple means of removing this chain link fence and throws in a plethora of other incredibly useful tips along the way.
Dinda has established a reputation as one of the leading Photoshop tutors on the internet and the amount of information that he gives away for free is quite remarkable. What I appreciate is that during this tutorial, he also includes advice on using layers and masks, keyboard shortcuts, smart objects, filters, field blur and tilt blur, the clone stamp tool and how to rotate it, and using a high pass filter to create a touch of sharpening.
What you also get is a free meditation on the subtle difference between simple and easy. The process that Dinda uses to remove the chain link fence is one, but arguably not the other, and those experienced in using Photoshop will be more than aware that sometimes, there’s no way to avoid doing time-consuming, repetitive tasks to get a job done.
