Rumor: Adobe to announce Retina display-ready Photoshop CS6 on Dec. 11

Source: Adobe

An announcement on Adobe's website regarding the company's upcoming "Create Now Live" contains a video that appears to show a Retina display MacBook Pro running Photoshop CS6, suggesting the photo editing software will finally be getting native high-resolution screen support.

As noted by Mac Otakara, the embedded video shows a MacBook Pro with Retina display running Photoshop CS6 in what looks to be the laptop's native Hi-DPI screen resolution.

The most telling evidence is the screenshot above, which clearly shows incredibly smooth font and mouse cursor reproduction indicative of the MacBook's Retina display.

In August, Adobe announced that it would be bringing support for both Lightroom 4 and Photoshop CS6 by the end of the year. Adobe released Lightroom 4.3 earlier in November with support for both the 13-inch and 15-inch Retina-toting MacBook Pro models.

Adobe is slated to kick off "Create Now Live" on Dec. 11, with a keynote from Vice President of Products Jeffrey Veen. Among the topics of discussion will be new Creative Cloud features and design talks from industry professionals.
