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.

Yes please! Cutting paths is fundamental for compositing. Can't wait to be able to use the Pen Tool via the PS iPad app (hopefully sooner than later!).

 All the selection tools in Photoshop for iPad are lacking. I’ve been using Photoshop professionally since version 2.0. At the very least the selection tools need to be able to select and deselect. Without these basic options this app is unusable.

Actually, a couple of the selection tools are growing on me, but I really miss the Polygonal Lasso selection variation the most.

I just did a ton of updates to use Photoshop for iPad so I could finally use the Photoshop Path tool on my iPad. I was very disappointed that paths aren't yet supported, that was literally the only feature I was looking for. Please bring paths to Photoshop for iPad soon.
