Ha! Wait for CS7 or CS8 and you no longer need a camera. You just will need to describe your intended image to the program and you are done.

It's called "content aware" - a bit like the healing brush but instant - plus you can use the lasoo for large areas

So that is a really impressive example, also if you take into account how easy that might be. But what I see is that not only the program is content aware, but also the photographer has to be content aware and do some work on the replaced areas as you can obviously see that there are repeating patterns.

Ha, at some point in time when looking at digital images I started to get aware of sharpening halos which result from over sharpening, now that get a little bit more varied because I will see repeating patterns. :wink:

I agree - but I'm no expert and as I indicated - 3 key strokes - less than 10 secs and I did not take any care

but look at what is happening to photo manipulation "for the masses" - simple, easy power, (at an "Adobe" price)

No, without question, they did a good job. But when looking at images, I more and more think about: Is it still photography or is it computer graphics and Adobe is going to push that edge more and more to the computer graphics side.

A good image is a good image, no doubt, but in the future do I have to praise the photographer or the graphics program?

Bill, as you know I am a relative neophyte at post processing software, but I think I'd like to use some of that "Black Magic" in other parts of my life as well!:biggrin:

rst, I take your points. If you feel like it, I think you might do well to start a separate thread about this question/theme, perhaps in the Open Forum? I don't mean this as a castigation at all - far from it! I have struggled with this for years with regard to photography and other art forms, as well. I have no doubt that it would engender some interesting discussion.

Well, it's possible that Google could come up with something that makes use of all the images ever posted to the web - along with artificial intelligence to allow you to build a scene interactively.

Sort of 'photographic design' in the truest sense of the word - only limited by your imagination and every photograph ever posted?

Exciting times ahead for the non-traditionalist (I refuse to be annoyed by this kind of 'progress' :wink:)

Thanks for sharing Bill

Cheers

Brian

Cuious as to what were the steps taken on using "content awareness"? I'll download the trial version tonight and see what it can do.

It samples pixels around the selection and figures out what would make it seamless, be it a solid color or a pattern.

That's great and accessible to me ! I mean it was probably possible in earlier version but not so easy !

I'll try to remove my mother in law from some pictures :smile:

Yes, exciting times ahead, also for lawyers when they will fight about how much of a photograph is copyrighted by which photographer ... :wink:
