So many modern drawing programs have perspective drawing features. I would love for photoshop to do the same. I know there are 3rd party apps or plugins but it would be amazing to have 1,2 , 3 point, fisheye perspective built into photoshop with guides that snap your line to perspective when you draw.

You can also add rulers for drawing straight lines, curves or circles similar to sketchbook pro or some other apps. This would be a dream for people who draw. Thank you.

I would love to have rulers that are easier to read. I'm sure some graphic designer thinks that it's cool to do everything in shades of low contrast Grey's, but it actually creates a hardship to use. I rely on using the scales to size/scale various features on old maps and sketches. It's a freaking nightmare going from CS5 to the current CC PS!!! Change the contrast, PLEASE! It's annoying to have to pay money every month for software that is a PITA to use!!

I suppose making the visibility for the default rulers would be nice aswell!
But yeah I'd love to have perspective/(shape) rulers that the drawing snaps on to, like sketchbook pro, manga studio, painter, procreate , lazy nizumi, ect. It's great for those who draw a lot of perspective art, and backgrounds.

I fully agree about that !
They should schedule the feature release from now, it's crucial for a program like Photoshop.
Let's not forget about the horizon line feature too.
Coming from a guy using Krita, here's a detailed description about what the feature could look like :

Exactly. Actually "photoshop sketch"  the ipad app has perspective drawing tools and even stenciles which is great. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Vk5HbT-LSI
Nearly all art programs have perspective drawing these days, even adobe's own Ipad app is more powerful/feature rich in that department than the desktop version. Im not sure why that is but photoshop needs in my opinion.

I mean even if you wanted to go a step further you could actually take the 3d features inside of photoshop and allow the user to draw in 3d space, or place and manipulate 3d cubes in space as placeholders for sketching over. You sorta can do that now https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gL6egLk9Xc .Good for design interiorrs, cities, landscapes ect.  Im going off on a tangent but I would also bring back the 3d figures you once had that you can pose and place in a 3d scene. Clipstudio pro has this feature for example.

Anyway I digress, photoshop desktop apps NEEDS a perspective tool for sure. 1, 2, 3 point perspective in fairly commonplace in apps now. More importantly it's something that alot of artist will really find alot of value in who draw in photoshop. Adobe has been doing great job lately addressing the illustrators and drawers who use their product last few years so Im hopeful.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Perspective tool for the artist?.

The photoshop audience is not designers only. Photoshop now is industry standard for 2d artist too. But we don't have the right tools for our job. We need to use many "kludges" to resolve our problems. Perspective request has existed for more than 6 years. https://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/should_adobe_make_another_photoshop_like_prog...   No perspective, no alternative from adobe. Situation with the color wheel was the same (release in cc 2019).

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Perspective Drawing + Rulers.

Hello.
So I work in animation and I have to draw a ton of backgrounds in perspective (cities, interiors ect). I really feel it  would be so helpful to me and bunch of other artist in general if photoshop had an updated drawing ability to do "perspective drawing/rulers" thats fairly common in most art programs these days. Infact I usually just use procreate if i can (or lazy nazumi when working on a windows pc) now to save time now drawing because of the robust drawing/ features but would rather stay on my big cintiq using photoshop!   Photoshop is so advanced in many editing features but has been behind on this particular perspective drawing feature that would be pretty helpful for such a long time and it would really make drawing backgrounds so much easier.

Actually on one production Im on they  literally make us use a physical wooden ruler on our cintiqs for certain natural stroke looks while other programs like sketchbook pro/clip studio have built in rulers. So I hope you all can consider adding this. Thank you very much for listening.
