Google made a bunch of interesting and exciting camera-related announcements at I/O 2017, and we’ll cover them all, but one of the most intriguing was also one of the shortest. Google briefly showed off a powerful “content aware fill” feature that left people wide-eyed and clapping furiously.
You can see the capability in this GIF. “Say you take a picture of your daughter at a baseball game, and there’s something obstructing it,” says Google. “We can do the hard work, and remove that obstruction.”
Unfortunately, Google didn’t reveal much beyond this little teaser. We don’t know when this feature will come, or what product it will be integrated into (although Google Photos is a good guess…). What we do know is that this kind of automatic object removal would be a huge hit with people who either don’t know how to use, or don’t want to bother with, Photoshop.
