A month after Apple’s unveiling of the company’s new M1 chip for Mac, Adobe has—as promised—announced that the latest version of Lightroom is now a native app for the new Apple computers. Lightroom has also been rebuilt for the Windows Arm platform.
That means the photo organizing and editing application will run natively on the new Mac Mini, Macbook Air, and Macbook Pro, in addition to Windows 10 machines powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon. “And if you’re on an Intel-based computer, don’t worry,” writes Adobe’s Sharad Mangalick on Adobe’s blog, “we’ll continue to invest in and improve Lightroom for you too.”
Lightroom Classic and Photoshop aren’t there yet, but both apps are now certified to work well with Apple Rosetta emulation. You can, however, download Apple M1/Windows Arm native versions of Photoshop as a beta app through Creative Cloud.
In addition, Adobe Camera Raw has been updated to support Apple ProRAW. Thus, the December updates to Camera Raw, Lightroom and Lightroom Classic can now import and edit images taken in the company’s new RAW file format.
