Video: How to Use Content Aware Fill in Photoshop for Nendoroid Photography

IMG_7425Whenever I take pictures of my Nendoroids, figma or Cu-poche, I usually stand them without using their base stands. I usually get a lot of questions how I stand my Nendoroids, so last 2013 I made a post about standing them using hook wires or bobby pins. Click HERE to see the methods I use.

If you look at the picture below, there’s a thin wire which I used to make Nendoroid Levi stand. Of course, patience in balancing him is a must! It is quite a challenge in using this method as it will need a lot of time to pose him the way you want.
Stand

Today, I decided to make a quick video on how I remove it using Content Aware Fill tool in Photoshop to achieve a nice picture of your Nendoroid without those annoying stands.

This can also be quite helpful in making a quick fix to remove a dirt or dust somewhere on your figure.

If you have Adobe Photoshop, go ahead and try this out. Good luck!

1. Open the image you would like to edit

2. Use Lasso tool, in tracing the part that you want to remove

3. Shift-F5 or go to Edit > Fill

On the Fill window: Use: Content Aware, Mode: Normal, Opacity: 100%

      When I’m lazy, I still use their stand but find the right angle to hide it.

    Thank you very much! I just gave it a try with Figma Ryuko. I definitely see the importance of using a thin wire now instead of the thick Figma/Nendo stand and base, way easier to shop out. Hahah.

    Thanks again! \^_^/
