Indeed, this is absolutely not “Photoshop on iPad” as stated and promised in the lead up to launch! You must quickly include the Pen tool to create paths as this is a basic essential of compositing! Please do this quickly. Thank you.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Drawing Paths with the Pen tool in Photoshop iPad App.

In Photoshop (desktop program), I use the pen tool to draw a path on a photo and then apply a layer mask to cut it out. It's the best and most precise way to cut out a photo. The apple pencil would make cutting out photos so much easier, if only the new Photoshop iPad App would incorporate these features.

Not only would it be useful to have the standard pen tool where a point is placed on the canvas where you lay your pen, but also perhaps a new type of pen tool that lets you freehand. It would allow you to just draw with the apple pencil or your finger like you would any pencil and it would create a path as you go along. A streamline adjustment feature would be helpful too, especially with this one, to smooth the paths that are drawn.

Please add the Pen tool! Huge part of mine and a lot of peoples workflow! Also would be great to be able to start an edit on Lightroom mobile and then transfer it to photoshop mobile. Do that and it would make this 10x better! Thanks Adobe!

You'll have to be patient. I suspect its going to take a while considering how many demands I see for this, that, and the other. I personally don't need the Pen ahead of a lot of other stuff so consider that too, yours might not be the top priority.

I have been using Photoshop since 1992. I think the least we could expect is that the tools that were available in that version of Photoshop would be available 27 years later. Photoshop is fundamentally a compositing tool, the Pen tool is the most essential part of this process.

For you! I edit nature macro photos and I almost never need the pen tool.
