At left is my digital painting (“Extreme Tech Support”) for the cover of the October issue of Le Scat Noir. I wanted to repurpose the image for an ad but needed space on the right. A big problem?
Not really, thanks to Adobe’s “Content-Aware” technology in Photoshop CC (Content-Aware Patch, Scale, and Fill). The result, at right, allows room for text at the top and down the right side.
The screenshot below shows the substantial distance I added between background log and figure using Content-Aware Scale without distorting the radical tech team.
What would once have required hours of labor was accomplished in a matter of minutes.
Use your tools, comrades!
