MacBook Pro with Retina getting hi-def Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom soon

macbook-pro-retina-top.jpgDespite stating alongside the launch of the MacBook Pro with Retina Display that their CS6 Photoshop and Lightroom apps would be getting updated to support the high-definition screen, we’re still waiting for Adobe’s revamped creative suite to land. That wait however may almost be over, with the company confirming work on the two programs is nearing completion.

“The Photoshop and Lightroom teams are pleased to announce we will provide support for HiDPI displays in the coming months, including the Retina Display available on the new MacBook Pro,” the company says.

Free to all Photoshop CS6 customers later this Autumn, and also free to Lightroom users once it too is complete, Adobe are keen to emphasise that such significant updates will be landing more regularly with the advent of their Creative Cloud subscription service. Members of their service will receive the update slightly ahead of those who are not subscribers too.

Those using Photoshop Elements are still waiting for news on support for Retina displays, though Adobe promise they are looking into the viability of a similar update.
