Every now and then, as we are building a new feature, we decide that it’s just too good to keep to ourselves and we show it to you early – before it is ready to ship to customers. So today we’re giving you a peek at Content-Aware Crop, a feature the Photoshop team is currently working on for you.
I can’t tell you how many times people have asked me when we will bring the Content-Aware technology to the crop tool. The answer is…soon!
In this video, group product manager, Stephen Nielson shows you how it works. With Content-Aware Crop, Photoshop looks at all the pixels around the edges of your image and automatically, seamlessly fills in the blank space with content when you expand or rotate an image. Here’s how you will be able to use it:
- Move the horizon by adding more sky or ground
- Change the aspect ratio by adding content around the edges of your image
- Fill in the corners when you rotate an image so you don’t give up any of your pixels
- … and probably more we haven’t even imagined ourselves
You asked for it and we are delivering. Content-Aware Crop is just one of the cool new features coming to Photoshop CC and our Creative Cloud subscribers as part of an upcoming major release. Check back here regularly and we’ll let you know when this feature becomes available.
