Photoshop: Layer Shape, Contour and Mask as parts of the Layer Style Tool

It would make sense to introduce a further layer property: a layer shape. There we would find diverse options like e.g. degree of roundedness for corners.

In addition, we would also have diverse options for contours. We would be able to make them smoother or more rough and e.g. sandy as they are. Also to introduce a gradient of translucence, to let them expand or shrink in diverse ways and so on.

And third, things we do using layer masks, could also be partially introduced as parts of the Layer Style Tool and later also saved as styles. This means that we would have there a new area dedicated to the mask development and adjustment. This would be especially useful for icon and symbol creation and also any other similar activity, where we need the same shape (completed by other styles) again and again.

Of course all suggested things would be non destructive, hence later removable if needed.
