OK, on to today’s tutorial
I wound using Photoshop’s Content-Aware SCALE last Friday when I was creating the YouTube Thumbnail for my Behind The Scenes shoot, and the image didn’t fit like I wanted it to. After it quickly fixed my problem, I was once again reminded of what an extraordinary feature it is, and how little-used, or even known about, it is. So, today, I’m showing you how to use it, including a few tips that make it even better. Check out the video below:

Hope you found that helpful!

Hey, Lightroom Users in the Washington DC area:
