Hi gang, and welcome to my new series on Photoshop features that can really be helpful…if you only knew they existed, and what they did. There’s some really great stuff buried in Photoshop, and it’s stuff that maybe we don’t use every day, but once unearthed, they can make a big difference.

I’m calling this new series “Buried Treasure” and we’re starting with one of my favorites (I had to use it just yesterday), and in the short video tutorial below, I’ll show you how I used it, and a way you might not have thought of where it can be really helpful. Here goes:

Hope you found that helpful. More to come later this week. :)

See you on Friday in Minneapolis?
I hope so — I’ll be there with my Lightroom On Tour seminar, and so will about 300 other photographers who are ready to make a big leap in their Lightroom life. Hope I’ll get to meet you there.

Have a great week (’cause it’s gonna be a great week!).

  1. Very nice – like the Alpha1 trick – looking forward to the series

  2. Great tip, Scott. FYI, you’ve titled the video “Content Aware Fill.” Should it not be “Content Aware Scale”?

  3. WOW! I can’t tell you how often I struggle with that issue and had no idea there was such a simple solution. Thank you, Scott, from the bottom o’ me heart! ;-)

  4. Dude! That was awesome! Great start to this new series. I’m looking forward to more. ?
