Will Adobe Photoshop CS6 be Retina Display Ready or is it a Rumor?
By Kimberly Carver
The big question before the December 11th “Create Now Live” event from Adobe, is whether or not they will be announcing that their newest Photoshop CS6 will be Retina Display-Ready? A rumor of such an announcement stems from a video that the company released, that according to Mac Otakara, MacRumor and others, shows a MacBook Pro with Retina Display running Photoshop CS6.
The most notable evidence (which we took a closeup of below) that the notebook used in the video (shown above) is a MacBook Pro with Retina Display, is that you can clearly see the incredibly smooth font and mouse cursor reproduction, which is indicative of the MacBook’s Retina display. As you also see in the video, the Hi-DPI screen resolution also matches that of the MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
Although this isn’t 100% proof positive that the two will work together, it does look very hopeful and will be something MacBook Pro users that opted to pay the extra $400-600 dollars will likely be quite happy about.
On December 11th 2012, we will all know the answer to whether or not this rumor is true or not. The “Create Now Live” event will begin with a keynote from Vice President of Products Jeffrey Veen. Listed among the topics to be discussed will be the new Creative Cloud features and some design talk from other industry professionals.
In August, Adobe announced that it would be bringing support for both Lightroom 4and Photoshop CS6 by the end of the year. Adobe released Lightroom 4.3 earlier in November with support for both the 13-inch and 15-inch Retina-toting MacBook Pro models. Make sure to check back with us on Dec. 11th for an update!
