Draw with Pen tools in Photoshop

Content-Aware Tracing Tool
The Content-Aware Tracing Tool allows you to create vector paths and selections by simply hovering over the edges of your image. Different zoom levels affect how Photoshop sees your image and thus how the tool identifies edges. While adjusting the Detail slider, Photoshop displays a preview of the edges that Photoshop sees.
