Adobe was one of the companies that announced that they would be developing a native version of Photoshop and Lightroom for the new M1 chipsets. These apps are expected to be made available in 2021, but the good news is that Adobe has since announced that a beta version of Photoshop is now available for download.
According to a post made on Adobe’s forum, the company said, “This early version of Photoshop for Apple Silicon offers many of the core Photoshop features that you’ve come to rely on for your day to day editing needs, and we’ll be adding more features in the weeks to come. Note that Beta software is not officially supported yet by Adobe, but we want to hear from you, and this is the place to let us know how it’s going.”
As the company notes, this is a beta which means that it won’t offer up a full set of features that you might expect from the public release, but it might be of interest to those who are curious about what a native Photoshop designed for the M1 chipset could feel like.
