Adobe announced today its first version of Photoshop is now available with native support for Apple Silicon, meaning support for M1 Macs without the need for Rosetta 2.
According to the company, Apple Silicon support for Photoshop from “our internal tests show a wide range of features running an average of 1.5X the speed of similarly configured previous generation systems.”
Overall, performance has improved, while activities such as “opening and saving files, running filters, and compute-heavy operations like Content-Aware Fill and Select Subject” now feel “noticeably faster”, while some operations are “substantially faster” with M1.
Some new features, specifically Invite to Edit Cloud Documents and Preset Syncing still need to be ported over to Macs with M1 chips.
