Curvature Pen Tool - Adobe Photoshop

Draw Paths Naturally

Curvature Pen tool in Photoshop is designed for users to create precise paths without dealing with confusing Bezier handles that we see from the traditional Pen tool. Path drawing is as simple as just placing points on the canvas.

Help users discover new tool

New tools in Photoshop are often hard to discover. New tools are usually hidden in groups in Photoshop toolbar. To solve the discoverability issue, I added tool instruction toast with animation that is triggered by using the traditional Pen tool.
