    Content Aware scale - stretches only one side of picture

    jiria35941709 Level 1

      Hello

       

      When im trying to stretch background with CA-Scale tool (protecting figure via Alpha channel) the background is streching its content only on one side.

      As an effect I get picture on right side totally distored while on the left it is almost untouchted. It looks like as if the tool was working gradually.

       

      Cannot figure out how to fix it

      No matter where I place the refference point (or use relative ref. point) the result is always the same

       

      Can You help, please?

      Thanks

          It looks like it's picking the areas of least content that would be the easiest to stretch. Only thing I can suggest, is to do it in small chunks by using the marquee tool to select the area you want to stretch.

            Content Aware Scale will always stretch area more that have less detail. That's just the way it works. There is much more detail on the left so it gets stretched less.

            This photo is not the best candidate for Content Aware Scale. You will probably need to use a variety of techniques to make it look natural.

            Select and content aware scale the right lower side.

            Fill the upper right with a gradient that matches the sky color.

            Select where the clouds are being chopped off and Edit > Fill > Content Aware.

            Select grass on left and Edit > Fill > Content Aware.

            Select sky area on left and Edit > Fill > Content Aware.

            Assuming that the stone wall continues to the left, select a good piece of it and duplicate it to fill in the area.

                                   

            You can use the patch tool on the wall to touch up any areas that look too repetitious.

            Fill in the blue sky with matching color.

            Select the left edge of the tree and use Content Aware Fill to round the left side.
