There's A New Pen Tool Coming To Photoshop CC
The pen tool is perhaps once of the most powerful tools in Photoshop, but one that can be frustrating to learn. Rightly so, there are a few shortcuts you have to remember in order to use it effectively, and it has finally been made a little bit more intuitive.
It's called the Curvature Pen Tool and it's like the simplified little brother of the pen tool. It probably won't replace the pen tool for people who use it, but it encourages people who don't use it to use it, or for areas you quickly want to mask out.
I can't wait to get my hands on it to see how it works. I honestly avoid using it on simpler areas but I'll probably use it more often now as well.
It's stated to launch later this year, without an exact release date.
