It would be great if Photoshop had the exact same
line tool that flash has. where you draw a line and then easily put bends in it.

i know this can be done using the pen tool in photoshop
but using the flash way is much much easier and faster for clean up drawings.

Unfortunately, this is an issue with the Raster nature of Photoshop vs the vector nature of Flash. Photoshop has support for vector, but no "true" vector, it is all just vector information used to define where pixels are. So the vector tools are not nearly as strong in Photoshop.

And yet, as far as I’m concerned, Photoshop offers superior Path handling in some respects when compared to Illustrator (specifically the path-closing-behaviour and the perspectival transformation).
