Adobe has just announced the official availability of the version of its famous Photoshop software for the Apple M1 processor. The publisher indicates that it has carried out preliminary tests internally and measured a speed gain of 1.5 on average.
These tests relate to common operations such as opening and saving files, performing filters, as well as computationally intensive operations such as content-aware filling and topic selection. Even program startup is faster in the M1 processor port.
Adobe specifies, however, that some new functions are not yet available in the M1 version of Photoshop, for example Invite to Edit Cloud Documents and Preset Syncing.
The publisher preferred not to delay the release of Photoshop version M1 and is currently working on porting the missing functions. It indicates that customers who absolutely need the missing functions for their work can revert to the Intel version with Rosetta 2 emulation until they are integrated into the M1 version.
