Lightroom wins Super-resolution and Adobe expands compatibility with Apple’s M1 processors

3

Adobe continues to develop its software for Apple M1 computers. Thus, InDesign and Illustrator are now fully compatible with them, when Premiere Pro goes into beta. New functions are also added to Lightroom on Mac and PC.

Adobe pursues compatibility on Mac M1

Since the launch of the first Apple computers under ARM and operating thanks to the house M1 chip, Adobe has gradually extended the compatibility of its software to this architecture. After Lightroom in December 2020, then Photoshop in March 2021, it is the turn of InDesign, Illustrator and XD to be natively compatible.

How the price table works

Previously, this software could be used with M1 Macs, but they used Apple’s Rosetta emulation to run applications intended for the previous architecture. According to a study commissioned by Adobe, its applications are 80% faster in M1 Macs compared to those with an Intel processor.

Note for videographers the support for Premiere Pro currently in beta: it is likely that its native support will be finalized in the coming months.

Super-resolution comes to Lightroom

Beyond a simple announcement of new compatibility, the update brings its share of improvements and new functions, foremost among which is the addition of Super-resolution on Lightroom. Already available on Photoshop, this mode improves the image by simulating a better definition. Thanks to a treatment doped with machine learning, the software provides a better quality image. To access the function, once Lightroom has been updated, all you have to do is right-click on the expanded Raw file and select Sharpen. Two choices are then available.

  • Raw details, which “Improves detail and reduces artifacts in most raw files”. It is the lightest of the treatments, which slightly improves the sharpness of the image.

  • Super-resolution, which “Doubles the image resolution. Ideal for large screens and prints ”. It is a more cumbersome process which takes a little longer, the file taking up more space on the computer. However, the result is quite impressive and offers good possibilities for cropping.

Depending on the options checked and the initial size, the processing will take more or less time. An estimated duration is displayed by Lightroom. The modified file is transformed into DNG format. Note that the more powerful the machine, the shorter the processing time.

Photoshop is not forgotten

Creatives using an iPad will be happy to learn that they can now use the same brushes on their computer and tablet. These are all compatible with Apple Pencil. Photoshop for iPad also includes new brushes and, most importantly, thanks to the Adobe Capture app, you can create your own brushes. Just take a picture with the tablet of objects or drawn shapes and the app transforms it into a brush that can be used in Photoshop. With the Line tool, you can now draw lines as vectors or using pixels.
