Then, what happened here? The Content-Aware Fill tool is the brother of the Clone Stamp tool where we manually take a sample and fill the area we want to remove or hide. The same process is happening here automatically.

Content-Aware Fill is sampling the same color from its around and filling the area. Thus, we’ve got a clean area or whatever result we expected.

Now let’s remove the watermark by applying the same process of Content-aware.

Step 5

Zoom the image until it gets distorted.

Step 6

Take the Lasso tool here in lieu of the Rectangular marquee tool since the edges of the watermarks are not straight as it was in the case of the before-after marks that we removed earlier.
