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.
