I needed to remove something from my picture of computer on the table and restore the structure of the table when the object is no longer there. I have accomplished already removing the object and filling it with a structure using Quick Select tool, then Edit > Fill > Content Aware. My problem is that now the picture is disturbed along the edges of what used to be the object, there is the ugly shadow.

enter image description here

Can you advise me how to correct it so it would look like the object was never there? Thanks a lot!

  • Next time try to expand (and feather) your selection a bit by using the Refine Selection function. This might help getting rid of the edges. Commented Apr 28, 2014 at 12:12

Use the Spot Healing Brush if you want to do it fast. If you want good quality result I would suggest that you take your time and fix it with the Clone Stamp Tool. The Clone Stamp Tool is perfect for this kind of texture. Make sure you sample frequently. enter image description here


It can be done with the help of content aware Fill by selecting edges in parts As I had shown in this video CHECK IT

Video Steps

  • By Lasso tool select the edges you want to remove
  • After Selecting edges go to Edit Menu
  • Edit Menu :: Fill command and select their CONTENT AWARE
  • Press OK
  • Your edge will be removed cleanly
  • Note : Do not select all edges at same time , select edges in parts for better results.

    After using the Quick Select tool, go to Select > Modify > Expand and expand your selection by a pixel or two. Then use the Content Aware function, and there shouldn't be an edge.
