Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Content-Aware Crop, part of Photoshop: 2015 Creative Cloud Updates.
- [Voiceover] In this movie…we'll take a look at a new feature…in the latest version of Photoshop CC…called Content-Aware Crop that combines the Crop tool…along with Content-Aware Fill.…So let's say that I want to add some additional room…above and below this image, I'll go ahead and zoom out…by pressing Control + "-" or Command + "-" on the Mac…and then I'll select the Crop tool.…Now I notice up here in the Options bar…this checkbox called Content-Aware Crop,…go ahead and turn it on…and then make sure that Delete Cropped Pixels is turned off…so that you're cropping nondestructively.…
All right, now I'm going to drag upward on the top…of the crop boundary and as you can see we're revealing…this checkerboard transparency pattern…which is telling us that we've run out of imagery.…All right, next, I'll go ahead and drag down on the bottom…of the crop boundary to add a bunch of room below.…Now prior to Content-Aware Crop…if I were to now accept my new crop boundary…then I would end up with transparent areas above…
