selection to vector path

Sometimes masking is  easier to manage with vector shape

Then simply begin with a vector shape. Then you can always convert it to a selection or a maks if needed.

Would love to see it in  APhoto too

My gut feeling is that it will eventually come along with the ADe "vectorizer" tool that we're all eagerly waiting for since years.

Yeah. It's exactly what I often do but isn't it cooler to  just get a rough vector shape first and then  tweak few nodes and corners .  Photoshop is  good for that contrary to many vectorizers   that do a mess of nodes from everything.    

Better thing I ever used was only former Imagaro  or Graphic Tracer .    I stopped to pay their subscription  because Photoshop selection to path + its "match font"+ huge free font collection  is kind of enough for me. 

Still APhoto is so much better to work with vector masks  because  you see the transform gizmo only around the object you are working with, not the whole masked layer.   In Photoshop it's so annoying

Hi kirk23,
It's also quicker to start with/generate a selection automatically then simply adjust the paths as needed after converting it, than to create the paths from scratch specially with complex objects. This is logged as an improvement but i have no idea if or when will be implemented.

A very "quick'n'dirty workaround" would be switching to Designer and drawing the rough path with the Pencil tool.
A curve cleanup with the Node tool will then work the same back in Photo as well.
