Photoshop CS6 - Magically Move Objects

Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

Looks like in the next release of Photoshop (CS6) you can magically move around any object In your photos.

 

I'm anxious to give this a try. From the video you can see the new clone-stamp like content-ware fill, which allows you to define a part of the image as a source to easily erase anything from an image. This should be a huge timesaver, but what is even more amazing is using the same technology to move any object around the image.

 

You can skip to the 1:00 mark to see how it works. In CS5 this could have taken hours to accomplish, in the new version, a matter of seconds.

When will this feature be implemented in The Gimp??

;)

 

LOL - I have tried several times to use GIMP... I just can't do it. My photo editing program of choice is Fireworks.. I know that I should probably learn to use Photoshop, but I'm just not really that motivated...

Wow that looks great! I'm currently using a student edition of CS5 web premium and I'm really considering of upgrading to CS6 web premium! That is just amazing. Photoshop never ceases to impress and amaze me. It truly does get better with every new version. ;) Definitely looking into CS6 more after seeing that. It'd make my graphic designing so much easier with that.....as you said, it normally takes hours to accomplish that.....

I took a few photoshop courses a few semesters back so it's really not all that hard for me to get the hang of photoshop to be honest. I caught on pretty quickly and can do a few things with it ;) I would recommend reading some tutorials online though or take a college course on it. :)

But it's never as simple as they make it seem. They always demo images that match the specs of the tool perfectly. For instance, the ground is an organic texture that doesn't have a particular direct or pattern. If it had a pattern or grain, this would be much harder to match. If it had more colors, this wouldn't work at all. The image with the scope at the beach conveniently covers the seam in the middle of the two colors, and is a distinct color from every other part of the image.

I try to get excited by these new features in every iteration of photoshop but usually find myself a bit underwhelmed. I've tried the new content aware move and rarely gotten the same result without the use of at least one other tool to clean up.
