American software major Adobe has launched Photoshop for Macs with Apple Silicon. However, it is a beta version that is available for Macs. The support is added to Macs that come with an Apple M1 processor. Photoshop is basically a photo drawing and editing software. It is one of the most widely used photo-editing software in the world. It is even used by amateurs and professionals to fulfill their day-to-day editing requirements. The software has invited applause for transforming the world of photography and design with its tools that offer perfection. Photoshop was created in 1988. It has since then become the industry’s one of the most loved destinations for digital artworks. It is published by Adobe for both Microsoft’s Windows and Apple’s macOS.
Adobe in a statement said that this is the first beta release of Photoshop that will run on the Apple Silicon. It said that the early version offered many core features of Photoshop. The company said that it will add more features in the coming weeks. According to Adobe, it doesn’t offer support to run the regular x86 versions with Rosetta 2. It added that the Apple M1 chip is not a good fit for those depending majorly on Photoshop for their work. According to Apple’s claim, the M1 is the first chip that it has designed specifically for Mac systems. The iPhone maker claims that M1 delivers incredible performance.
Notably, Apple had earlier declared that Adobe is working on a plan to release Creative Cloud apps for Apple Silicon M1 hardware. The launch could take place early in 2021. The beta version of Photoshop needs Apple Silicon hardware and Creative Cloud desktop edition 22.214.171.1240 or above. The release comes with several limitations. Adobe promised a fully functioning version soon. Adobe in past had made a similar approach for the iPad. It had initially released a basic version and gradually added new features. Adobe launched Photoshop for the iPad last year.
