An upcoming release of Photoshop CC includes a brand new cropping tool which uses Adobe’s pretty awesome Content-Aware technology to automagically fill in missing areas of a photo. After straightening a photo by rotating it to one side or another, you’re normally left with missing corners.

The upcoming Content-Aware Crop tool in Photoshop CC taps Adobe’s Content-Aware technology to intelligently fill in the gaps when you use it to rotate an image or expand the canvas beyond the image’s original size. As evidenced by Adobe’s video demonstration, it works like magic.

Here is Content-Aware Crop in action.

The next version of Photoshop CC will include Content-Aware Crop and other cool new features that Adobe will probably highlight as we get closer to the app’s public release.

    You can achieve similar results now by using Content Aware Fill. Sure, the checkbox will save you time but, this is more of a workflow enhancement than an earth shattering new feature.

      I totally agree. its just removing a manual step from selecting the white space yourself and using the Content Aware fill.

    I am using the iOS app Anticrop for quite some time now. It does the same even with much wider crop/extensions. So the feature is amazing but for sure no new technology!
