Here's what happens when Photoshop's smart tools meet typography

Photoshop's crammed with tools designed to make life easier for harried designers. What was previously a tedious job of mucking about with clone brushes and blending and still not being happy with the results is, in Photoshop CS6 and above, a one-click task with the Content-Aware Fill tool.

It looks at the empty bit you're trying to fill in, looks at everything around it and then comes up with a best guess of what to put in there. The results aren't always especially refined – especially if you're working at print resolutions – but they can be a life-saver if you need to chop an unwanted detail out of a photograph in a hurry.
