Offset a Path in Photoshop

I would love to be able to offset a path in Photoshop, essentially like contracting a selection by 1px, but doing so with a vector path.

 

This would save me so much time, as I have to do this for numerous images.

 

Offsetting the selection and making a path from the selection is not precise enough. Currently, I have to manually select groups of anchor points and nudge them over. 

 

This feature exists in Illustrator and works well. How likely is it that it could be implemented in Photoshop? I may have overlooked the ability to do this in Photoshop. If so can someone point me in the right direction?

 

Thanks for any help!

As far as I know, there is NOT a way to do that in Photoshop. I agree there SHOULD be, but I suspect Adobe purposely leaves those options out in order to force people to use Illustrator. Converting a selection to a path is pretty bad as well.

Agreed that there should be. That very well could be that they leave it out on purpose.

 

Maybe there is a plugin that can do it that I haven't found.
