Speed Up Your Design Process Using the Content-Aware Fill Tool

In this new tutorial Chelsea shows you some ways of using the new Content Aware Fill command in Photoshop to speed up your design process. This tool can be used to aid in building textures and all-over patterns, and as a short-cut when putting certain patterns into repeat.

Now, with the latest release of Creative Cloud, we have a fabulous new dedicated Content Aware Fill command that allows you to preview and adjust the fill before applying it to your design. Let’s take a look at how this works with a few different examples!

Check out the tutorial here.
