Adobe Photoshop is often used for removing backgrounds and other unwanted objects from a photograph but this new "content aware" technology not only improves that process but makes it easy for Photoshop newbies as well.

You just have to paint the object that you want to remove using the Spot Healing Brush and the program will automatically fill that area with a surrounding pattern.

While Adobe is not talking dates, we could see this feature live in Photoshop CS5.
