It used to be that cropping an image only went one way –
smaller. Cropping in on an image usually means making the subject of your shot bigger, and discarding pixels around the edge of the frame. This is a useful skill – not only does it mean you can draw attention to your subject, which is particularly helpful if your subject is small, but you can also reposition the subject of your shot in the frame if it’s strangely placed to begin with.
With Photoshop CC, cropping doesn’t necessarily mean zooming into your image. Take rotating a shot, for instance. Ordinarily, rotating an image creates white space at the corners of your shot; Photoshop automatically constrains – ie, makes smaller – your image to avoid this white space showing up in your final image. Content-Aware cropping fills these white spaces with automatically generated new pixels, based on patterns and colours nearby.
