I have been testing out the iPad version of Photoshop and getting framiliar it's interface and commands but I can't seem to find the polygonal lasso tool. Surely they didn't leave out such a simple and constantly used tool. What am I missing?
I don't have it in front of me but if I remember correctly it should be on the left bar (with all the tools) as one of the drop-down options. Hold down the "Marquee" tool and a few options should appear. I believe it was Rectangle, lasso, and ellipse. I can take a screenshot tomorrow morning if you don't find it by then.
Please refer the following article to check all the available tools for selection in Photoshop on the iPad: https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/select-mask-on-ipad.html#Makeselections
Lasso tool and quick selection tools are there in the list.
Hello and thanks for your response. I see the lasso tool but I am specifically looking for the Polygonal lasso tool which is different than the regular lasso tool and is used to select objects with straight but irregular length sides. It is one of my most used tools on the desktop version but I don't see it anywhere in the ipad version.
Here you go, my bud! Hopefully that's what you were looking for. Cheers!

When you're right, your right! That's on me, I read this late last night and omitted the "polygonal" part. I don't see it there either. There are quite a few tools missing right now. I got my hands on this at Adobe MAX and had a chance to talk to the devs. They're very open to feedback so I'd drop them a note in the "tell us what you think".
We can transition to the desktop when we need those other tools but it would be nice to have that natively.
Few tools missing?
I hope you're joking here...
Almost everything that makes Photoshop great on desktop is missing on iPad version...
Check this comparison between Affinity Photo and Photoshop, both on iPad:
That was the first tool I looked for!! This is crazy!! Your query was posted Nov 6th 2019 & it is now March 25th 2020 & still no Polygonal Lasso? So Photoshop on iPad is useless as far as i'm concerned. The rep answering "Pattie-F" is playing dumb!! & whoever is in charge of features is too!
Thanks for your feedback. We have plans to add many more features to Photoshop on the iPad. Feel free go add/vote for this feature so our team knows what new features you are most interested in:
