Photoshop: Folders for Paths and Channels panels

I’d sure love to have folders in the Paths and Masks menus, just like Layers.

Also, it would be neat to be able to link a path in the Paths palette to a path linked to a layer in the Layers palette: you could see all the paths used in the Layers palette, and if the path is used more than once you’d only edit it in the Paths palette and the path would update to all the linked paths in the Layers palette. If you needed to edit the path but only for one instance, you could break it off into its own unique instance. What a time saver that would be for me!

No one yet, eh? I sometimes have 20+ paths and the palette starts to get confusing without the ability to sort in folders. Surely that has some appeal!

The company I work for has a team of artists that uses Ps to create 2D raster animations. When we get done with one animation it can have as many as 50 paths. What frustrates me the most is that the functionality for organizing paths into folders already exists. Layers utilize this functionality and it would be extremely simple to add for paths, especially compared to some of the new features that have been added to Ps cs6.

I would also like to point out that it makes no difference that paths and layers are different. Being able to put a path into a folder has nothing to do with what a path is or how it works and everything to do with how it’s displayed in the UI.

I just use a lot of paths and it would be nice if I could group them by areas.

I'm an illustrator and I use a lot of paths. Once the number of the paths becomes to great, they are very difficult to manage. I can't turn off the paths easily or organize the paths. Please make folders possible where I can put my working paths in different folders that pertain to the objects I'm working on .

Feature request, Photoshop CC:


Please add GROUPING of PATHS!!!


This would come in very handy for those of us that use many paths for color correction masks and outlines. It would be nice to be able to organize them with folder groups.
