The main software development companies come with the lesson learned in this new transition from Apple towards the ARM architecture of its own production processors, trying to avoid the mistakes made during the transition to Intel.
Thanks to this, users of Apple computers running Apple Silicon processors can now enjoy the native version of Adobe Photoshop, being the third native Adobe application for Apple Silicon processors to reach the market, after the launches of Lightroom and Camera Raw, although Future releases of rival native applications, such as Corel Draw, are also looming on the horizon.
Promises more performance improvements and adding missing features
Of course, for now, the native version of Adobe Photoshop for Apple Silicon M1 chips lacks some functions, for which the company will be working to try to incorporate them in successive updates, although the provisional solution, according to what they point out, goes through the execution Adobe Photoshop in Rosseta mode.
It lacks, for example, functions such as Import, export and playback of embedded video layers, vibration reduction filter, among others. This is in contrast to the performance improvement, 1.5 times greater than Mac computers from previous generation computers.
The company, Adobe, is committed to working closely with Apple to continue bringing more performance improvements for Apple Silicon devices, as well as the incorporation of specific functions for M1 processors.
In this sense, taking advantage of the architecture of Apple Silicon processors, which include a GPU optimized for machine learning jobs, Adobe has also launched the new super resolution function in the Camera Raw plug-in, which will soon also reach Lightroom, which allows magnify images up to four times their resolution without losing detail in photos, clearly competing with the ML Super Resolution feature in the Pixelmator Pro app, which works in a similar way but employing a different deep learning system.
However, the transition to the ARM architecture of its processors, which began at the end of last year, is for now being less painful than the transition to Intel processors, there are still two years ahead to complete it, and that lately there are rumors about it. the possible launches of future more professional desktop computers that allow the transition to continue, although the details and characteristics of the high-end processor that will carry all of them also remain to be known.
