Total Newb: Paint.Net Feature Like PS "Content Aware Fill" (see photo)

Recommended Posts

Howdy, yikes, sorry the image below is so gigantore. As I said, I'm a newb. 


Thanks in advance for any suggestions you may have. I am slowly learning PS and other software programs, and paint.net comes highly recommended. 


I'm the owner of a high-end guitar pick company called Charmed Life Picks. We're based in Los Angeles and have been in business for four years, and there is a lot of demand for our products. Believe it or not, our cheapest pick is $30, and I can't make them fast enough. Here's one of our more popular models:


I've been jobbing out most of the photo and design work, but want to begin to learn to do it myself. As mentioned above, the pictured product is one of our most popular models. The drilled holes are a very popular feature in the high-end pick world. Known as "grip holes," they help musicians hold onto the pick. 


So to my dilemma. We are introducing a new model identical to the one above, except it does not have the holes (not everyone loves them). I want to use the same photo for this new model if possible, as this is such a great image. Is there a way I can fill in the holes using PN while also matching the color patterns in the material, or is this just too much of a chore? Would it less trouble for me to shoot the new model that comes without the holes?


PS has a feature called Content Aware Fill that looks like it will do the job, but I'm really disgusted with Adobe charging a monthly "rental" fee and would prefer to not to business with these people. 


If PN has such a feature, could someone please post a link to a vid or article that might walk me through it kinda slowly? Or just tell me to go fish and shoot the new model


Sorry to babble. Thank you,

SoCal Dude

I just tried it with:
Using Ellipse select tool around group of white dots
Sample area size (in pixels) set to 14
Sample from: All Around
Fill direction: Random

It came out perfect!



Hey, HyReZ, thank you. May I PM you if I have a question or two?


Thanks again. Appreciate it.
