Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator now support Apple's Retina display MacBook Pros

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
In conjunction with its Create NOW event, Adobe on Monday released an update to all users of Creative Suite 6 that brings support to HiDPI screens like the Retina displays found in Apple's top-of-the-line MacBook Pros.

Creative Cloud


It was first speculated that Adobe woud be releasing HiDPI versions of its professional image editing software in November when the company posted a video that showed a 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display running Photoshop CS6 in a native high-resolution mode.

With the new capabilities, Adobe made good on a promise in August to bring Retina support for both Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6 by the end of the year. Adobe introduced a release candidate of Lightroom 4.3 earlier in November with support for both the 13-inch and 15-inch Retina display MacBook Pro models.

Along with Photoshop and Illustrator, Adobe plans to offer Retina display support for its entire suite of software, including Dreamweaver, and Prelude, among others. No launch timeline has been announced, but updates are expected soon.

Adobe's Create NOW Live event is scheduled to start on Tuesday with a keynote from Vice President of Products Jeffrey Veen, which will be followed by discussions ranging from new Creative Cloud features to design talks from industry professionals.

Does that mean the Retina MBP is now officially the best computer to use Photoshop on? 1smile.gif

Any idea when and how CS6 users will be able to download the update?

It was confirmed in August that Adobe was working on this, by none other than John Nack himself:  blogs.adobe.com/jnack/2012/08/photoshop-cs6-13-0-1-available-update-on-retina-plans.html  Just sayin'...  1wink.gif

I'm sure Adobe achieved retina compatibility the same way they make other UI elements: through some horrendous, kludgy in-house solution rather than Apple APIs.

 

There is no excuse for all the non-standard behavior throughout their suite, which is inconsistent with both Apple UI and between the various apps in that suite. There are probably a dozen various implementations of scrollers, nested menus, and other elements that any sane coder would let the OS handle. Just between Photoshop and Illustrator, I can't count the number of controls and dialogs that do the same things in different ways without taking off my shoes. Maybe all the resources that would have gone towards consistency were redirected to giving Photoshop 3d- and video-editing capabilities no one wants. But that explanation doesn't even work, because it still takes more resources for the non-solution of independently duplicating common CS features.
