Adobe is carrying out a Photoshop update to bring native support for Apple Silicon, promising clients 1.5x faster performance than running the software through Rosetta emulation.
In November, Adobe released Photoshop with Apple Silicon support in beta. Presently, with its most recent v22.3 update declared today, Adobe is authoritatively adding Apple Silicon support.
While Photoshop will run natively on M1 Macs, there are a few caveats. Clients will can run Photoshop as a native Apple Silicon application or under Rosetta emulation. Under native mode, in any case, certain features won’t be accessible. Adobe says that the ability to import, export, and playback embedded video players isn’t supported under Apple Silicon, and different features, for example, preset syncing, shake reduction filter, and the “Share an image” button don’t as of now work.
Adobe is additionally posting a few known issues that beta clients detailed for native Apple Silicon support. Adobe says that the ability to copy/paste edits between an Adobe application running natively on Apple Silicon and one running on Rosetta emulation is right now not supported. As a solution, Adobe is suggesting clients run the two applications under a similar mode, either native Apple Silicon or Rosetta emulation.
Close by Apple Silicon support, the March 2021 update incorporates general and expected bug fixes and enhancements. Adobe Creative Cloud clients can update Photoshop utilizing the Creative Cloud Mac application.
