More of Adobe Creative Cloud is Apple M1-native now and the speed bump is astonishing

Adobe has updated some of its most popular apps for native Apple Silicon support, with the newest versions of Illustrator, InDesign, and Lightroom Classic all now updated to be M1-native. The changes should mean a noticeable performance improvement, Adobe says, as the new software taps Apple's custom CPU and GPU acceleration.

The best Google Photos alternatives you may already be paying for

The big Google Photos change is almost upon us, and if you've been enjoying free, unlimited uploads since the cloud storage service launched then you're about to get an unpleasant surprise. Switching to a paid model will help keep Photos around, Google argues, but the good news is that there's a decent chance you could already be paying for an alternative.

Photoshop now runs natively on Windows 10 on ARM with a big catch

Photoshop now runs natively on Windows 10 on ARM with a big catch

Whenever a new kind of computing device comes out that is targeted at professional work, one of the most common questions that come up is whether it can run Adobe Photoshop. That software, after all, has become the gold standard for professional creatives and has also become the measure by which those computing platforms are rated against. That has once been the question about the iPad Pro and even the new M1 Macs, both of which run on ARM processors. Now almost a year after promising it, Adobe has fully released a native version of Photoshop for Windows 10 on ARM, with some caveats, of course.

Microsoft is dropping the ax on Adobe Flash Player in June

Microsoft has been warning users for months now that the end was near for Adobe Flash Player. Adobe stopped supporting Flash on January 1, 2021. Adobe also released a kill switch preventing Flash Player from running. The problem for Flash Player was that it was a source for many attacks against Windows users, making it a security risk.

Apple and Adobe failed to make Flash run well on iOS

Apple and Adobe failed to make Flash run well on iOS

They say two heads are better than one but sometimes even geniuses get stumped by unsolvable problems. That apparently happened years ago when the creator of iOS and the developer of Flash tried to make the two mix. Apparently, even the combined expertise of Apple and Adobe couldn't make Flash work on iPhones and iPads in an even bearable way, perhaps helping set Flash on the road to its eventual demise.

Two of the most popular creator apps on Mac, Adobe Photoshop and Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve, now run natively on Apple Silicon, with new updates supporting the M1 chipset in the Cupertino firm's most recent models.

Adobe Creative Cloud gets new video and audio features across multiple apps

Adobe today revealed that a number of Creative Cloud apps are getting new photo and video tools.

Photoshop, Illustrator, Fresco updated with Invite to Edit

Several key Adobe Creative Cloud apps, including Illustrator, Photoshop, and Fresco, were given significant updates this week.

Adobe Flash warnings start popping up on Windows 10

Adobe Flash warnings start popping up on Windows 10

We're counting down the days to the end of the year but that won't be the only thing that will end after December 31, 2020. While we probably wish a certain pandemic will magically end at the stroke of midnight, it will be some other lingering malady that will be ceasing at the turn of the year. Adobe will be ceasing support for Flash, something that has been years in the making, and it is now making sure Windows 10 users know about it before that time comes.

Adobe Premiere Pro, Rush, Audition Beta now on Apple M1 Silicon

Adobe Premiere Pro, Rush, Audition Beta now on Apple M1 Silicon

Apple's ARM-based M1 Macs have definitely conquered the computing and tech news, at least until Cyberpunk 2077's disastrous launch took over. The chip's power and capabilities have definitely impressed both users and pundits but all that is for naught if apps don't take advantage of it. While the Rosetta 2 emulation layer also does a surprisingly impressive job, nothing still beats running native software directly. That's why it's no small news when a popular program announces support for M1 Macs, especially when that program happens to come from Adobe.

Adobe Flash Player gets one last update before its demise

Adobe Flash Player gets one last update before its demise

Few web technologies are probably equally loved and hated as much as Flash, created by Macromedia and now owned by Flash. Flash created a whole genre of content and a generation of sites that the creators of the Web may have never thought possible and probably wished never came to be. Those will soon be history, quite literally, as official support for the Flash Player inches closer to its death. But not before Adobe strangely pushes out one last update that will be relevant for only a month.

Firefox 85 in January will completely kill off Flash support

It's been a while since we've heard of any announcement concerning Flash and most have probably presumed it was already dead anyway. After all, it was years ago when Adobe, who bought Flash creator Macromedia a long, long time ago, announced that it would eventually stop supporting the former darling of the Web. The clock is ticking and fate has finally caught up with Flash and Mozilla is making sure that its remaining users know that Flash will completely stop working in the latest version of Firefox coming next year.
