From the f64 YouTube Channel:
 
Have you ever returned from a shooting location to find you had what could have been a good composition if you would have moved about 4 feet to the left or right? I know I have. It has happened to me more than once. I have good news for you. Photoshop has this Content-Aware Fill tool that can work wonders on situations just like this! You may have already seen the content-aware fill tool and used it many times. The technology behind the tool is in many other assets within Photoshop like the Clone Stamp Tool, the Content-Aware Move Tool, and the Patch Tool (to name a few). While I am sure the technology is sophisticated, it is effortless to use.
 
In this example, I use Content-Aware Fill to patch an area of the composition that never existed. Yep, I moved the image to the right, and that empty white space was filled in with grass, clouds, and even a finished road path. But how? Photoshop’s Content-Aware Fill uses data from around the image to replace the white space. It is similar to the healing brush or even the dust removal tool in Lightroom. It assesses the environment it is replacing and looks for pixel data that is similar to it.
 
Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it can be if you understand that you will also need a bit of help fixing the areas it replaces. In today’s tutorial, I will show you how I use this technique to fix poor compositions and show you how to use the Clone Stamp Tool to repair the wonky-bits.

Looks like we are going to see a large number of firmware updates in the near future. From Canon USA:
 
Regarding the security advisory for Canon digital cameras related to PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol) communication functions and firmware update functions.
 
Thank you very much for using Canon products.
 
An international team of security researchers has drawn our attention to a vulnerability related to communications via the Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP), which is used by Canon digital cameras, as well as a vulnerability related to firmware updates. (CVE-ID:CVE-2019-5994, CVE-2019-5995, CVE-2019-5998, CVE-2019-5999, CVE-2019-6000, CVE-2019-6001)
 
Due to these vulnerabilities, the potential exists for third-party attack on the camera if the camera is connected to a PC or mobile device that has been hijacked through an unsecured network.
 
At this point, there have been no confirmed cases of these vulnerabilities being exploited to cause harm, but in order to ensure that our customers can use our products securely, we would like to inform you of the following workarounds for this issue.
 
  • Ensure the suitability of security-related settings of the devices connected to the camera, such as the PC, mobile device, and router being used.
  • Do not connect the camera to a PC or mobile device that is being used in an unsecure network, such as in a free Wi-Fi environment.
  • Do not connect the camera to a PC or mobile device that is potentially exposed to virus infections.
  • Disable the camera’s network functions when they are not being used.
  • Download the official firmware from Canon’s website when performing a camera firmware update.
Models Affected
 
These vulnerabilities affect the EOS-series digital SLR and mirrorless cameras PowerShot SX740 HS, PowerShot SX70 HS, PowerShot G5X Mark II.
 
Firmware Update
 
There is an increased use of PCs and mobile devices in an unsecure (free Wi-Fi) network environment where customers are not aware of the network security. As it has become prevalent to transfer images from a camera to a mobile device via Wi-Fi connection, we will implement firmware updates for the following models that are equipped with the Wi-Fi function.
