by Vic Biggs Photoshop makes it a snap to move or remove items in your picture. Move it or lose it

To lose it:

1. Make a loose selection around what you want deleted .

2. Choose Edit, Fill, Content Aware Fill from the Menu.

To move it (This only works with CS 6):

1. Make the selection as above.

2. Choose Content Aware Move from the Toolbar.

You’re done!

Editor's note: I love Vic Biggs' simple and direct approach! You may need to do a bit more if the Content Aware option doesn't work as perfectly as we would like. I suggest using the clone tool to fix anything that doesn't look quite right. ~Peggy Farren
