I am currently trying to edit the people out of this image, and once I do it, am left with an outline of where the people were (I'm using the selection tool, then content-aware fill) any way of erasing the small outline and leaving the background behind the people? (BTW I have also tried using the clone tool).

There is no way to "leave the background," because the background does not exist in the file directly behind the figures. The only way to get the result you want is to carefully rebuild the background in small sections. The clone tool can be of help with this, but for a background this complex, no fully automated method will do a good job of this.

If I understand what you are asking then try with automated Spot Healing Brush Tool for your task. You can click then Shift + click at the end of line to force Photoshop to draw straight line where will occur pixel substitutions using Spot Healing.
