Introducing Content-Aware Crop: Coming Soon to Photoshop CC

Every now and then, as we are building a new feature, we decide that it’s just too good to keep to ourselves and we show it to you early – before it is ready to ship to customers. So today we’re giving you a peek at Content-Aware Crop, a feature the Photoshop team is currently working on for you.

I can’t tell you how many times people have asked me when we will bring the Content-Aware technology to the crop tool. Soon we will!

In this video, group product manager, Stephen Nielson shows you how it works. With Content-Aware Crop, Photoshop looks at all the pixels around the edges of your image and automatically, seamlessly fills in the blank space with content when you expand or rotate an image. Here’s how you will be able to use it:

  • Move the horizon by adding more sky or ground
  • Change the aspect ratio by adding content around the edges of your image
  • Fill in the corners when you rotate an image so you don’t give up any of your pixels
  • … and probably more we haven’t even imagined ourselves

You asked for it and we are delivering. Content-Aware Crop is just one of the cool new features coming to Photoshop CC and our Creative Cloud subscribers as part of an upcoming major release. Check back here regularly and we’ll let you know when this feature becomes available.

    ok it saves you 4 clicks to select the empty regions… but what exciting about it?

    you could do it before.

    • By Cretin - 11:33 AM on May 26, 2016  

      It does more than select the empty regions, it fills them in when you rotate the image. Try reading the paragraphs

      • By Peter Fram - 12:34 PM on May 26, 2016  

        Try reading before answering.
        He wrote it SAVES you the 4 clicks to select the empty regions.

        And basically that is all this is doing.

        You can do exactly the same with CC2015, it just needs a few more clicks.

    • By James Billett - 1:36 AM on June 23, 2016  

      I guess it depends on the engine. Content aware in my experience is good but does not always work. I agree with you – it only saves x clicks. But if it worked seamlessly every time that would save so much time.

  • By Norman - 12:26 PM on May 26, 2016  

    lol … try thinking. nome es omen?

    of course it fills the corners.. like you could do before.

    select the 3 empty corners… use content aware fill.. done.

    all this is doing is saving you a few clicks.

    • By Bob DeLellis - 12:16 PM on May 27, 2016  

      What tool are you using to select the empty corners?

      • By Spensr - 3:15 PM on June 16, 2016  

        Select the corners with marquee or lasso or whatever selection tool you like. Fill with content-aware.

  • By Doug - 12:26 PM on May 26, 2016  

    Please bring this to Lightroom!

    • By Spensr - 3:17 PM on June 16, 2016  

      Hear hear! My thoughts exactly.

  • By MacGiver - 12:42 PM on May 26, 2016  

    CAF works as bad as before for 90% of the content.
    Just look at the river bed after the CAF.

    Why is it that every time new features are announced for apps, there always has to be someone who dismisses or downplays them? So you don’t think they’re a big deal. Good for you. Do things the way you’ve always done them. Let others enjoy the fact that many who work on these apps every day are bringing more tools and improvements to all of us.

    Just be glad Photoshop and the rest of the Adobe apps are as sophisticated and wonderful as they are.

    I remember how crude Photoshop 2.0 was. No layers, no content aware anything!

  • By mike - 2:52 AM on May 27, 2016  

    I have CS6 what is involved with an upgrade to the new system. I also use Sony A6000 along with Nikon D800 with the new upgrade work seemlessly with both formats? Also what is the cost please
    regards, Mike

  • By Liam James - 3:40 AM on May 27, 2016  

    Mixed reaction above – probably because you’ve presented this as an exciting new feature rather than a workflow tweak.

    But thanks for considering workflow, it shouldn’t be dismissed.

    Wow ! Another Content Aware feature. If it works as well as the others, then i’d expect it to be suitable and usable for certain simple imagery only.

    Oh – and in those situations you could use content aware fill anyway, as others have suggested.

  • By Aaron Cunningham - 2:59 PM on May 31, 2016  

    Interesting. Not completely blown away by this tho.

  • By Dynamic Web Training - 6:17 PM on May 31, 2016  

    That’s great. I am interested to see the results with complex images.

    • By Munn - 5:15 PM on June 7, 2016  

      I think that with content aware fill it can’t actually see what’s behind and in the corners and simply has to guess at it. For the most part I think it does a pretty fair job.

    The very heart of your writing while appearing agreeable at first, did not really sit properly with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a very short while. I still have a problem with your leaps in logic and you might do nicely to fill in those breaks. If you actually can accomplish that, I could certainly be fascinated.
