I'm trying to use content-Aware fill to enlarge a photo in to different aspect frame. The subject is in pool, surrounded by a large area of water. I've put the image in to the larger aspect ratio canvas, with a green solid background behind it, then merged those two layers together as one. I selected all the green and delted using content-aware fill. It did a pretty good job but it's also recreating some of the subject.
Is there a way that I can specify the area that it chooses from, ie the water?
Mask out the areas which are not to be considered by Content Aware before running a Content Aware operation.
Worked like a charm, thank you very much.
