Photoshop's Paths

Photoshop uses vector paths in a variety of ways, for a variety of purposes. These nonprinting, mathematical descriptions of shapes and lines are called Bézier curves. They can be used to precisely define selections, create “objects” in the artwork, and even show a page layout program what should be visible in an image.

The paths used in vector art are referred to as Bézier curves after the French engineer who pioneered their application, Pierre Etienne Bézier (1910–1999).
