Adobe: 'Photoshop (Beta) for Apple Silicon is here!' Share This on LinkedIn   Tweet This   Forward This

17 November 2020

In a blog post today written by Mark Dahm, Adobe announced a beta version of Photoshop compiled for Apple's new M1 Macs.

"This early version of Photoshop for Apple Silicon offers many of the core Photoshop features that you've come to rely on for your day to day editing needs and we'll be adding more features in the weeks to come," Dahm wrote.

Among the features that remain to be implemented are Camera Raw, Content Aware Fill/Scale/Move, Photomerge, Spot Healing Brush, Patch Tool, Healing Brush and not all file formats are supported.

In contrast, running the Intel version of Photoshop on an M1 Mac would prompt you to install Rosetta 2 to compile an M1 version of the application using the native frameworks Apple has already supplied in Big Sur on the M1.

As Jason Snell explained in his M1 Macs Review:

Though apps running via Rosetta will certainly not run as fast as apps running natively, they're aided by the very large speed boost of the M1 itself and also by the fact that the frameworks used by many apps have been updated by Apple to run natively.

The post pointed to an online forum for discussing issues with the beta.
