CS5 Photoshop Sneak Peek Content Aware Delete

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

This short little demo of CS5 Photoshop is mind blowing.  I’m still on CS2. I think it’s time to update.

On Out of Alignment I had to touch up one shot that revealed the name of the town – but the character is supposed to be away. The director wanted the name of the town removed from the side of a van to minimize the incongruity. I digitized the shot as a sequence of photoshop images. Then I manually “cleaned” up each shot. It was painful and time consuming. It also failed to look natural (see Remove Text From Van Footage) when the images were played back because the corrections were not consistent from frame to frame. With some creative reframing, blurring and vignetting I was able to make it passable. Can’t wait to see what else is in CS5.
