This defines the technology that Patch Tool use. “Normal” lets Patch Tool to use the old technology by matching the source pixels against target pixels, and then fills the source pixels. “Content Aware” uses the new Photoshop Content-Aware technology. To be frank, I have faced any situation where I needed to use Content-Aware technology. “Normal” technology has always worked for me.
The demo that I showed you is demoed with the “Source” option. In the option, you can encircle the flaw and move it to the area of where you want the pixels of. In “Destination”, you just do the opposite. You encircle the destination and move it on the flaw. The generally saves time when you want the same pixels to placed in several places.
This is something you always want to turn off. If your image has transparency, you may want to turn it on. If you don’t know what is transparency in the image, just skip to the next point.
