Photoshop Beta lands on Apple Silicon, Windows on ARM

Photoshop Beta lands on Apple Silicon, Windows on ARM

ARM-based computers, including the iPad Pro, have long been in existence but one thing that has held them back is the lack of familiar software and tools that people have come to rely on for work or personal use. To some extent, software like Adobe Photoshop has become a sort of litmus test and its absence has discouraged consumers from investing in these new devices and platforms. With Apple diving into the ARM world, however, Adobe can no longer really ignore this new wave of computing and has finally brought Photoshop not only to ARM-based Apple Silicon but, finally, to Windows on ARM as well.

For years, it seemed that Adobe was mostly ignoring the rising popularity of Apple's iPads as creativity tools even when the first iPad Pros came out.

In addition to all of the product announcements it made today at MAX, Adobe also revealed new details for its Content Authenticity Initiative.

Photoshop Sky Replacement is more sophisticated than it sounds

Photoshop Sky Replacement is more sophisticated than it sounds

Let's face it. Despite concerns over easily "Photoshopped" fakes and advice to keep photos real, there will always be times when you'd wish a more dramatic sky was available in your photo. True to its original calling as a photo editing software, Photoshop's upcoming Sky Replacement feature will offer users the chance to have a more emphatic background to go with their images. But before you knock the feature off as something that can be done with simple selection tools and layers, Adobe is unsurprisingly explaining that there's quite a lot of AI and machine learning involved here as well.
