Photoshop CS5... the future is beautiful

Adobe Photoshop CS5 is just around the corner, and with it a bundle of new and exciting changes as always. I'd like to write about a particularly interesting change, the Content Aware Fill tool. This tool is a very efficient way to delete an object from a scene, or even add an object to a scene, when the usual photoshop tools would not be large enough to accomplish it. You typically use the "healing brush" to remove something, and hope that photoshop makes a smart move in deciding what to fill it with. If the area is too large, you can also select the area to delete and obtain the background color selected (or transparent), leaving you with an area that needs significant work.What if I told you that those are things of the past... and that on the horizon, Photoshop CS5 will replace those removed pixels with exactly what should have been there?

It is hard to explain, you really need to see it for yourself:

...Seeing is believing, and let me say, I am a believer.
