bamboo.JPGI've been using content aware fill for some time, so this is an embarrassing question.  See the image.  Three bamboo sticks.  One is selected.  Edit>Content Aware Fill prompts the message "Could not fill because there are not enough source pixels on the selected layer."  The program identified the two blue-shaded bamboo sticks on the left as the sampling area.  It seems to me that the program would use that sampling area to fill the selection.  Why "not enough source pixels"?

Try using the content aware fill workspace.

Thanks for the replies.  The original layer included 3 bamboo plants on a transparent background.  The plants are part of a much larger composition; so their layer is primarily transparent.  Only the plants represent opaque pixels.  I disabled the layer mask.  I had been using the content aware workspace so that I could select the two other bamboo plants to provide a sampling area for the third plant, which I wanted to fill.  That didn't work.  Then I placed a black layer beneath the transparent layer with the bamboo, and I merged the two layers.  Basically, I replaced the transparent pixels with black pixels.  At that point, I was able to complete the operation.  My initial premise was that the percentage of transparent pixels over the entire layer should not matter so long as there were opaque pixels that could be used as a sampling source (the pixels from the other two plants).  Apparently, if PS sees a prevalence of transparent pixels over the entire layer, it will reject the operation regardless that there might be some opaque pixels available.  Thanks, again, for the help.
