The lasso selection tool would be mighty useful.
Anne Farrelly commented
as an illustrator who likes to create hand drawn motifs - like 50 to a sketchbook page; then use microns ...
it is great to be able to vectorize in one pass alll 50 (one layer) - voila !
but THATs it
I cannot separate them (need lasso select for that )
So : basically a lovely but useless exercise
Alternative: take my cleaned up in iPad PSD scanned motif art and select every one in either iPad PSD or FR using their lovely LASSO tool ...
But then have to promote each item to another layer
NOT ok when you have a ton of motifs on a sketchbook page (common practice)
Yes: I eventually have to isolate them and promote to another layer
HOWEVER ... with at least 50-60 layers - dont expect to export that to AI iPad - file size is too big
Alternate; split the PSD file 6 - to 10 ways and open up each split in AI
Simply not happening
Please: can someone finish the job ?
Vectorize is great on the iPad (works like a champ for handdrawn inked motifs)
- which have to be on one layer for iPad to handle
However, vectorize is rendered useless if you cannot isolate each motif
RN - you cannot export out AI and as AI or SVG and open in say Fresco to use the FR lasso tool (that needs to change)
Agree, the lasso tool can replace the marquee if needed
The marquee cannot replace the marquee
Please this is an essential tool for vector artwork
+1...very hard to move subtle image components without it.
