Today, we have amazing news for you. Adobe has recently announced that the first build of Photoshop is ready that will run natively on the Apple silicon Macs and will give the users a major speed boost. Moreover, if you are in the creative field, then you can even run the video editing apps of Blackmagic Design – DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Fusion on the M1 Macs.
Photshop Becomes Native
Well, as we mentioned earlier, Adobe has announced that Photoshop is now available on Mac systems with Apple silicon support so you can enjoy speedier filters and selections. Thanks to a lot of amazing optimizations that have resulted in a huge performance boost on M1 Macs. As a result, a lot of the tasks on Macs with Apple M1 chips are around 1.5 times faster than the tasks run on Intel-based Macs.
A few features will require more work and testing before they can be made available to run natively on the M1 Macs including the preset syncing and editing cloud documents. Another thing to note is that if you wish to use the unoptimized features on M1 Macs, then you can switch to the Intel-based Photoshop version with the help of Rosetta emulation.
What’s New in Photoshop for iPad?
Photoshop offers two new features on iPad – working on the cloud documents offline and access to the cloud documents version history. Also, in Camera Raw, the users gets a new machine learning-powered feature of Super Resolution which will be soon added to Lightroom and Lightroom Classic as well.
Apple has also released the Apple silicon version of Lightroom also.
Last year, Apple released Mac mini, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro with the Apple silicon support and is currently working on adding this support to the remaining models in the Mac lineup.
DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Fusion Become Native
Another great news is that Black Magic’s video editing apps DaVinci Resolve and DaVinci Fusion have also received the native support for M1 Macs and a lot more new features.
In DaVinci Fusion 17.1, you get the new HDR color correction tools, tool to automatically isolate objects, enhanced color management, mesh and grid-based color wrappers, and a lot more.
In DaVinci Resolve 17.1, you get the updates of DaVinci Fusion 17.1 such as the 27 GPU-accelerated Resolve effects and a lot of new animation modifiers.
