Generative Fill, a work in progress
The above image was one that I made a few years back, and after despite an initial thought, the multicolored wall just did not match the mood that I was going for in the image. Despite various techniques with radial spotlighting, burning, cropping the background still seemed distracting to the theme. Now of course I did have options.

So, in my case, these actions would have taken at least 30 minutes if not longer. Considering I had multiple poses for my subject, the editing time could have increased significantly.
The second image was created with Generative fill in photoshop.
Generative fill looks to have a good start with options that will help most photographers and certainly can be a time saver. It is still in the beta release and hopefully will be even more refined when it is released in its final version.
