May I know how to make the gradient color looks more natural after filling by the content-awareness on the left?

I tried to use a Stamp tool, but it does not work as expected. :(

You can use the Patch tool for such areas.

1) Select the patch tool from the tools panel.

2) Make the selection of the area you wish to edit. (Make sure to go with small areas as it will lead to a better result.)

3) Drag the selected area to its left or right to patch and heal the selected area.

4) Repeat these steps for the remaining parts and you will get the desired result as shown below.

  • Make a rectangular selection from top to bottom around the area
  • Apply a Feather to the selection, around 20px
  • Menu Filter > Noise > Dust & Scratches




  • If I still can see a bit of the line, is that mean my feather effect is not strong enough? Commented Oct 30, 2018 at 8:01
  • I set the feather in the copy/paste image from your question, I don't know the real PPI of the original image. If it's a high resolution image, increase the feather.

A way to avoid needing the answer at all, don't make that line in the first place...

Don't feather the selection edge before using content-aware fill, especially on such an 'easy' fill as that & it won't make that line at all.

Exaggerated feathering...

No feathering...
