Have you ever tried to straighten and crop a photo before? If you have, you know that in the process of doing so, you will lose out some details in the images, especially around the corners of the photo. This is pretty much what photographers and image editors have had to deal with all these years, but maybe not for long.


Adobe has recently started to tease features of their upcoming Photoshop CC update, and one of those features is called Content-Aware Crop. As the name implies, this is a tool that is aware of the content you’re cropping, and in turn will be smart enough to fill in the blanks to the image that is generated by the computer based on your photo.

You can check it out for yourself in the demo above, although we should note that your mileage will definitely vary. This is obviously a controlled demo meaning that it has been chosen so that it replicates the feature’s best results, which means that when you try and do it yourself, the results might not be what you expected (it could be worse, or it could be even better than you imagined).

However for some editors, perhaps this feature could be the worth price of admission to the next update, which right now we have no idea when it will be released, but we’ll be keeping an eye out for it.
