The Magic Move Tool

The Magic Move Tool

By Discovery Center Team

The new content-aware Magic Move tool speeds up the editing process by automatically replacing the background when you remove or move an object. This tutorial shows you how it works in 3 easy steps:

  • select the object you wish to remove
  • select the Magic Move tool, move the object and allow the processing to occur
  • adjust the settings to ensure a smooth, clean look

And that’s how easy it is. The empty area left behind is automatically filled to match the surrounding background. It’s a great photo-editing time saver!

    I am running X8, and I can’t find the magic erase or move tools, do I have to go back to X7 to use them?

      I’m running X8 Ultimate (don’t know if that matters). You have to be in the Edit workspace. Pick a Selection tool (second from top on left) and Actions section appears in the upper left-hand area. Both tool options should be there.

      Hello Judith,

      If you accidentally delete or alter the selection before finishing with the Magic Move tool, you can use the undo function (Ctrl+Z) to undo the last couple steps and try again!

      All the best,
