Content Aware Fill Keyboard Shortcuts


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

  1. I was expecting some useful shortcuts. By the way I want better in the future.

    Some shortcuts of CS6 or CS5 will be really useful for all.
