TL;DR How do I use Content aware patching while keeping the layer as Smartobject?
I'm currently creating a poster for cake selling of my school
I'm a huge fan of working on Smartobjects only. Sadly I wanted to content-aware-patch the background so it matches for the poster format. (See below)
The quality of these images is sufficient for my school but I'd like to increase the quality of it by copying it very actively as a human without needing Photoshop to guess what to do.
I used the Content Aware Filling from
This sadly removes my Smartobject which leads to my question:
How do I use Content aware patching without removing the Smartobject?
I know about the patching tool stated in this article but this doesn't work on Smartobjects either.
I also know about the Camera RAW-Editor which includes the Pimple-Removal-Tool but the outcome of that tool isn't very good. (I dont know the english name of the tool)
I hope someone of you knows knows how to extend the cake image the way I did but in Smartobjects so I can go back if I make a mistake. The cake topping in the background is removed which shows you that the method used by me is very inefficient.
