This FR is a bit too generic.

Can you be more specific? Which features exactly?

I am not completely familiar with the specifics. I was just editing some photos in Lightroom and in several instances wanted to remove objects from my photos. The Spot Removal (Clone/Heal) is only good for small spots, not people in background, poles, trees, etc.

In my search I discovered Photoshop's Content Aware tools. I watched several video demonstrations and the technology is beautiful! Unfortunately my Photoshop Trial is expired so I cannot try it for myself, but I think it would be quite appropriate for Lightroom.

There are already to content-aware related feature requests:
- recover blown highlights with content aware
- More Photoshop like clone/healing/content aware brushes in Lightroom

If these two are all you need - just vote there.

Otherwise, it would be better to post a more specific usage scenario for content aware tools. The doubt that the fact that "content aware is just cool" will get much traction.

Content aware should be added to the spot removal tool as a secondary option (check box) certain situations call for it e.g. removing blemishes in portraits to close to the eyes, hair and shadow areas. In 16x20 posters and larger its very noticeable a spot was fixed with a pixelated ring. LR 5 helps but very tedious work is done using the opacity tool.

using the spot removal tool in LR 5 is also a nice feature using the single brush stroke some situations call for content aware, iv notice im using multiple single brush strokes for straight lines because im unable to find another similar section im forced to "edit in photoshop creating a TIFF file (close to 100mb each) to use content away having multiple files of the same image in LR
