I've just tried to load the new tracing? tool under technology features and it isn't there to activate. In the notes about it I've also found I'm supposed to have a pen curvature tool. I don't. How do I get these? I'm supposed to be supplied with the latest everything but it doesn't seem to be the case. I've attached a screenshot of the pen tools I do have.

If any one can enlighten me I'd be most grateful.

Hi Steve:

 

Double check your version. You may have installed 2021 (v22), but inadvertently opened an earlier installed version.

Win: Help > About Photoshop

Mac: Photoshop > About Photoshop

EDIT: I'm looking at your screen shot and including it below. You said "I've attached a screenshot of the pen tools I do have." but the screen shot is showing both the Curvature tool and the Content Aware tracing tool. Did you mean to include a different screen shot?

Sorry Barb,

I obviously got that wrong and sent the wrong screenshot. You were right though, it did open Photoshop 2020. I tried to rectify this, but 2021 crashes as soon as it opens, I can't use it all. I have reverted to 2020 for now. Any idea what that problem might be?

Steve.

Hi Steve:

 

There are some known issues with Photoshop 2021, so reverting back to 2020 for now makes sense. When you have time, check out:
