Adobe releases Photoshop CS3 beta with MacIntel support

All those people who like to buy into the whole “Adobe secretly hates Apple and will drop Mac support one day” rumors may have just lost a little wind from their sails. Adobe has announced that this morning they will be releasing a beta version of their upcoming Photoshop update, which will bring native Intel-Mac support for the latest Apple hardware.

In fact, in their press release, Adobe specifically mentions releasing this beta (the first of its kind for their flagship application) to aid Mac users in adopting Apple’s latest offerings.

“Adobe is delivering a widely available Photoshop CS3 beta to enable customers to more easily transition to the latest hardware platforms, particularly Apple’s new Intel-based systems… The final shipping release of Adobe Photoshop CS3 is planned for Spring 2007.”

In fact, the release almost implies that catering to Windows customers was an afterthought.

“This is an exciting time for the Mac, and Adobe wanted to ease the move to new Intel-based systems with a preview release of Photoshop CS3,â€? said John Loiacono, senior vice president of Creative Solutions Business Unit at Adobe. “We didn’t want to leave Windows customers out of the party, so the beta is available to everyone in the creative industry’s most passionate user community — no matter what their platform choice. We still have some surprises in store, but this beta gives customers an early chance to see the power of another great Photoshop release, optimized and tuned to run natively on the latest hardware and operating systems.â€?
