Retina Display Adobe Photoshop Now Available

A rather significant update for Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator for OS X has been released today in the form of a Retina Display update for the flagship photo editing and image software. The update to Photoshop and Illustrator CS6 enables a HiDPI mode, which means that all icons are now in Retina Display resolution for both the 13 inch and 15 inch Retina Display MacBook Pro. The update itself weighs in at around only 128MB and can be downloaded free from Adobe.

One word of caution however, is that obviously, if you are using a non-Retina Display external monitor (like a Thunderbolt display), as many users do when working with Photoshop, the update won’t make any difference to the resolution that you’ll see on that display. It is only noticeable on the display of the MacBook Pro itself, so you’ll have to wait until Apple releases a Retina-compatible Thunderbolt display.

The update also contains new features related to non-destructive editing with Blur gallery and Liquify, as well as support for larger JPEG files, and improved 3D functionality, including better previews in 3D models.

You can grab the update directly from Adobe here.
