Here's an amazing demo of the "content-aware fill" tool that's apparently forthcoming in Photoshop CS5. The tool makes it easy to delete objects from a complex photo, without any trace they ever existed. The ramifications for internet publishing are frightening.

It's been possible to post Photoshopped images since the birth of the Web, of course, but until now you needed some modicum of experience to convincingly retouch pictures. Soon, you'll need to know little more than how to pirate Adobe's software via BitTorrent. Not that we're complaining, mind you; we're already salivating imagining the photo illustrations we could do with this. Skip to about 1:10 in the clip above to see the new tool in action.
