The content aware fill keyboard shortcuts were a little confusing to me initially since the video Adobe released showed content aware fill working by just pressing the Delete key. I also discovered that the content aware brush isn't its own separate brush (again - not clear) but an option on the Spot Healing Brush.
The photo above uses the content aware fill with no other retouching and there are definitely a few problem areas. But overall I think the content aware fill and brush are worthy additions to the Photoshop toolbox. The content aware fill keyboard shortcuts are:
- Content Aware Fill on flattened background layer: Delete (which brings up dialog box with Content Aware as the default option)
- Regular Delete on flattened background layer: Command+Delete or Opt+Delete depending on whether you want to fill with background or foreground color
- Content Aware Fill on any floating layer: Shift+Delete (which brings up dialog box with Content Aware as the default option)
- Regular Delete (to transparency) on any floating layer: Delete
