No, you cannot - Content Aware is not magic. Those demos you see on the web that work wonder are simple images.

You still require old school skills to remove complex background or unwanted objects.

I just tried. Same pattern works ok! Complex background cannot. And CS5 starts up much faster than the previous version on my Mac! :thumbsup:

Want to buy liao!

That's where you're going wrong. Content aware fill is not meant to remove objects, it's there to add (fill) objects. That's why I pointed out on a thread some while back that it's taking all the creativity and challenge out of photography.

Open a white canvas, select a huge brush size, content aware fill the whole canvas and voila, instant picture in a few seconds.

That way you can safely leave the multi-million dollar camera and lenses safe in the dehumidifier until you feel withdrawal and the need to drool again.

Warning: No amount of technical jiggery pokery will simulate the magic Leica glow. That, as already mentioned, you can only get from original German glass or fungus infections in your lenses.

Further Warning: None of the above is meant as a serious comment.

Further Further Warning: This bit is serious, but if you can't see a good picture post-content-aware-fill then you need to look a bit harder. It's hard to explain exactly what the difference is, but it is there. A bit like the Leica glow.

Ooops, read Further Warning please. :angel:

content aware good for those who clone out a lot of things to have minimalistic landscapes.
no it is not good for cloning but good at filling in grassland and sky.

Bought and downloaded the CS5. Like the content aware. It helps me removing unnecessary lamp posts from the image. The other functions like HDR and lens corrections are very useful. Like the product. :)
