I haven't played with it yet, but I assume Content Aware is now the better option. If so, why is there still Boundary Warp?

Thanks,

Download is not available to me yet in the SW US, so I have not tried it yet. I would guess that it will be highly photo dependent and how complex the edges around the missing pieces are. I was always surprised at how well boundary warp worked. It would be great to be able to do some warp followed by fill.

Like Paul, I tend to do a bit of both. Boundary Warp can make straight lines a bit wavy, but Fill Edges does some crazy stuff if you give it too much to fill.
