please add object selection tool like photoshop
The features I am looking for
*subject tracing like Photoshop and masking like Photoshop and bring it to illustrator.
*add more brush tools like Photoshop
add tools and layer finder like photoshop
A general workaround to this is to Unembed your placed image and then Edit it in Photoshop.
If you don’t plan to have a complex layer structure in a raster image and keep it flattened, you might want to try a paid plugin, Rasterino by Astute Graphics, which allows to edit and update embedded images without unembedding them.
Please be more specific.
What Subject tracing? You mean Select Subject command? What are you going to do with it in vector program?
What brush tools? Raster brush tools in vector design program? Like Affinity Designer does?
If you want something like in Photoshop, use Photoshop.
Layer Finder though, is a great thing to have, yes.
