Hi friends,

Two .pngs. Same workflow. Different results. What am I doing wrong?

 

With the orange .png, Ps won't even allow me to use the custom sampling brush.

Does Content-Aware Fill hate the colour? The shape? Or me!?

 

Definitely in need of your advice and expertise here.

 

I have included screenshots of Content-Aware Fill working with the green .png and not working with the orange .png.

Hey Ali,

Thank you, I have now tried that, and guess what? Same error!

'Could not fill because there are not enough source pixels on the selected layer.'

I even tried Select > Modify > Expand to select more pixels.

I wonder what's wrong?

I tried to duplicate your issue with a similar design, but it worked OK.  I hate to suggest resetting Preferences because it irritates the heck out of me when I have to resort to it, but when things gets weired, it often does the trick.
