Photoshop CS6 Retina Display Support Coming on December 11?




Mac Otakara notes that Adobe's promotional materials for its upcoming Create Now Live event on December 11 appear to show a 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro running Photoshop CS6 in high-resolution Retina mode.

Adobe announced in late August that it would be bringing Retina display support to Photoshop CS6 "this Fall", with the company's other applications also receiving updates "over the next few months". Several of those updates have already appeared, but Photoshop will be the most popular of the company's applications to receive the upgrade to Retina resolution.

That is definitely a Retina Macbook Pro.

Just Photoshop CS6? Does Adobe have 1 developer working on all the CS products?

I'm personally more in a hurry for Illustrator and InDesign to be Retina compliant.

Hopefully they have a fix a few of the other annoying issues in CS6.

I hope they change the croptool back to cs5 standaard. The croptool in cs6 is so bad!!

Typetool is still slow when loading for the first time.
Lots of other features that need attention.

A bit off topic, but dream weaver is my favourite name for a coding application

You'd expect Adobe to have resolution-independent versions of all of their icons and glyphs.

It's not just replacing all the icons and UI with higher resolution versions. It's modifying all the image handling code—everything that displays or previews things to the display needs to get updated.

Good design takes time. So does good programming. The MBP 15" really just came out in late June and the 13" in October. How long do yo think it should have taken? If Adobe rushed this out and it was full of bugs, you'd be complaining it was garbage too.

I'm still not sure why would web designers use a Retina MacBook Pro for design. Designing things on a screen that is different from what most people are using seems troublesome.

most web devs i know that us retina books use them in scaled resolution so they have more screen real estate

It really hasn't bothered me, but then again i've been doing more print work than web lately so no pixel perfect stuff which would have been difficult. The interface seems OK, definitely seen worse and the cavas is a little bit blurry but it's hardly a show stopper (unless your doing pixel perfect stuff)

There was a lot of uproar about photoshop on retina and in my opinion it's been totally blown out of proportion.

Only thing thats annoyed me is when u copy an image from elsewhere its 2x the size... thats nothing an action to resize it to 50% didn't fix.

The bigger issue is the absolute fail of Creative Cloud, they promised so much and delivered nothing.. although it's still a good deal why promise things you can't deliver on.

Most web designers I know use better screens then 99% of what there users use.

Most people have really crappy displays but your not going to design on what most of your users are using.

Your post is quite off-topic, but I agree on iTunes 11 and Aperture 4. I'm ready to purchase Aperture, but I just have a gut feeling there must be a substantial update right around a corner... And most likely it won' t be free.

Regarding CS6 & retina - personally I think Illustrator should be first to get it. Hope it's in the pipeline.

BTW, Pixelmator, the ever-more-awesome Photoshop alternative already has retina support, is super fast, costs fabulously reasonable money and for hobby/casual user is quickly becoming THE best option out there! And with the constantly added features Pixelmator is becoming more and more suitable for professional use as well.

I second Pixelmator. Much nicer GUI and tighter OS X integration. And you can't beat the price. But for those many things you can't do with Pixelmator, pay Adobe.

There's always a problem with cross-platform apps, they're made for one or the other or else stuck in-between (the worst kind). I wish Adobe would stop trying to make the Windows and Mac version of their programs look and work the same. Sure, it'll be easier for cross platform work, but then you lack the features that take full advantage of the OS. Google Chrome is an example of a well developed crossed platform app.

On an unrelated note, we also want iLife and iWork '13 or whatever they're called.

Photoshop is useful for a helluva lot of things other than web design.

But the problems I'm mentioning are regarding web design.
