More details on support for the MacBook Pro with Retina display

When the MacBook Pro with Retina display came out, Adobe said that its software such as Photoshop would eventually support the high resolution of that display, also known as HiDPI, but they didn’t provide further details. Today Adobe provided more information about Adobe software support for the Retina display. In a post on their Creative Layer blog, Adobe listed software that will receive HiDPI updates “over the next few months.” Presumably, the applications that aren’t on the list are on a longer update timeline.

Digital photographers should note that Photoshop and Lightroom are both on the list. Some wonder why it takes so long, but keep in mind that assets like icons need to be updated (over 2500 according to Adobe), and any changes that affect the rendering of graphics and type need to be not only coded, but also tested and verified.
