In last the video we talked about what to do when Content-Aware Fill doesn't work and if you're on Photoshop CS5, those workarounds are really valuable. What I want to show you now is a new tool in Photoshop CS6 that really accelerates fixing that problem. So again, just to look at what the issue was with this file, what we had wanted to do was fill in this area in the front of the image and we'd asked Content-Aware Fill to do that. And it looks at the whole image and it pulled in some of the wrong data we got, what's a called Content-Aware Fail and we had a nice workaround for that, but something that people have asked for, for a while and that was, couldn't you just take that technology and put that in the Patch tool and in CS6 that's exactly what we did.
So we took the Patch tool and we made it Content-Aware, I can take that same selection and just move it over here and it's going to copy from the other side of the screen and patched that right in there. And it's a use that same algorithm that looks around at the texture and the tone. The only thing to know about this is if you don't get the exact result that you want, you can come up here and change how strict or how loose the blending is, so depending upon where you're working with, in this case, with a repeatable Background with the dirt, medium worked really well.
