In Topic: Photo using Content Aware

Yesterday, 02:28 PM

The technique to preventing content aware from "unwanted cloning" (like an extra ear or eye!) is to mask everything you don't want content aware to think can be used as new background.  Depending on what's in the photo, this can be as much work as manually cloning.

That's a good tutorial video, Carol, but I think content aware will not work for terri's photo because the background behind the entire length of the pole is too varied (not just leaves, but also parts of arm, parts of railing, grass, tablecloth).  Content aware works best when the object you want to disappear, is surrounded by the same background.  So it worked well in the video example where the "stray bird" appears in front of a background of clouds.


Content aware takes the drudgery out of manually cloning background to cover something up.  However, if it can't be done manually to look natural, then it can't be done with content aware either.


When the offending object is close to people, content aware may start cloning extra people parts.  Freaky.

I don't have a glitter style per se, but here's a shiny metallic style:

Easy enough to cover the pole left of her face with background leaves, but you would have to create the rest of her arm.  It would probably look too fake.  I would just leave it and try a creative coverup with embellishments and frames.


Just a quick idea here:

Hi, Becky,


Put the black outline on its own layer, then apply the glitter style to this layer.
