The Spot Heal Brush will let you remove imperfections or unwanted aspects from a photo quickly and smoothly by sampling the area around your brush and using it to color over the problem.

Content Aware Fill can recreate in missing aspects of a photograph based on the rest of your selection. It is powerful, but best used for less detailed or obvious areas like grass or the sea.
