Since our popular post Thursday with the latest “sneak peek” preview of the stunning new Content-Aware Fill (aka PatchMatch) technology in Photoshop CS5, another “insane” video has surfaced… This one comes from last week’s Photoshop World in Orlando, and shows something we still find impossible to believe.
But before we get to that, first Photoshop CS5 gets unveiled by JohnnyL!
Now, back to the latest story with Content-Aware Fill… In this next clip, three new demos are shown. First a person is removed from a scene with a click, then some graffiti is cleaned up in a snap, but the really incredible part is what they do to the photo of the woman in the swimsuit! Last week we were blown away when we saw clouds, desert, and mountains being synthesized with simple clicks of the mouse, but here is something completely more “human” and equally amazing – meaning the technology can be used on much more than landscapes, and the possibilities really expand.
As a bonus, here’s a link to one final piece – a brilliantly-done ‘spoof’ of the new Photoshop fill technology, inspired by some of the magical things we’re seeing and wondering if it could do more… It’s completely hilarious and recommended, although still wishful thinking at this point.
Word has it that apparently close to 50,000 people have already signed up to attend April 12’s CS5 worldwide launch event so far…
