The current 'Make Work Path From Selection' feature does a really bad job. I don't think this feature has had any love or attention for years.If it worked properly (creating smooth curves and not chopping off parts of the image), this could save me hours of work.Can you please update this feature to be more accurate?

Could the Devs at Adobe please look at this issue again.
I receive hundreds of images from a supplier every day, and each one has to be checked for resolution, and clipping-pathed before it can be used in production - this is our standard.
It takes hours of my time just clipping these images, I would love the convert selection to path function to be more accurate - getting the average value between dark and light and mapping the curveĀ  or something.

Currently it creates either a jagged edge following the pixels, or completely misses the mark.

There is a lot of room for improvement here.
