STEP ONE: Open an image with a medium- to large-sized object to delete.
STEP TWO: Activate the Polygon Lasso tool or any Selection tool.
STEP THREE: Next, you will need to click and drag to paint a selection onto your light post. As you continue to paint, Photoshop will automatically add similarly colored pixels to the selection. For the image you have chosen, we used a larger brush for the lights (30 pixels) and a smaller one for the pole (9 pixels). If you select too much of the background, don’t worry. You can use the command “Option-drag (PC: Alt-drag)” across those pixels to subtract them from your selection.
STEP FOUR: Choose Edit>Fill and from the Use menu, then select “Content-Aware,” and choose “OK” and Photoshop fills the selection with surrounding pixels and that will blend together.
STEP FIVE: The magic it uses to fill your selection is made to be random and changes each time you use the command, giving it a more natural feel. If you don’t succeed the first time around, try choosing Edit>Fill again. Press Ctrl-D to deselect. Here’s the final result.
