Is a Retina version of Adobe Photoshop CS6 coming in December?

Adobe recently released a teaser video for its upcoming Create Now Live event on December 11. But one thing in particular caught our eye. It seems the company may be releasing Photoshop CS6 for Retina screens. 

In the video, it appears that Photoshop is running on a MacBook. Many blogs, including Japanese site, Macotakara, think that the computer in the video is a 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro. While these rumors have yet to be confirmed, it makes sense that Adobe would be releasing Photoshop and CS6 software optimized for Retina MacBooks.

Back in August, Adobe announced that it would make Photoshop and other CS6 products compatible with Apple’s Retina screen, which is one of the highest resolution screens available. Adobe also said that it would be releasing the updated programs this fall.

While the 15-inch Apple MacBook Pro with Retina has been available for some time, Apple just recently announced the 13-inch version during its iPad Mini event in October. Perhaps Adobe was waiting for Apple to release the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro before it released any updated software that would be compatible with the technology.

It also makes sense that Adobe will be releasing a Retina version for its most popular products, since it already released a Retina-compatible version for its Lightroom software earlier this month.
