Camera Raw 8.1 brings Retina support to Photoshop CS6

In addition to HiDPI support, the new release (available via Adobe Labs) supports a number of new lens profiles plus the following cameras:

  • Hasselblad H5D-60
  • Olympus PEN E-P5
  • Olympus PEN E-PL6
  • Phase One IQ260*
  • Pentax Ricoh GR
  • Panasonic LUMIX DMC-G6
  • Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LF1


Once Photoshop CC is available, this release will run there as well, but with new features (e.g. radial gradients) enabled.

It’s worth noting the distinction between bug fixes, compatibility updates, and feature enhancements. Adobe has always delivered the first two for currently shipping software, and Photoshop CS6 falls into that camp. New features are reserved for new apps, and that’s where CC fits. [Via]

    I don’t understand. How can it bring retina support if Photoshop has had Retina support for several months already? #typo?

      The core interface of PS has Retina support but many of its modules haven’t been updated yet(Liquify, Save for Web and a few others.)

      [You beat me to saying so; thanks. –J.]

    Please be advised that if PS is not offered as a stand-alone product I will no lomger remain the loyal Adobe customre I have been since before PS3 and EVERY release since!

    I am NOT interested in the CC and Cloud.
    I expect cutting edge state of the art, no compromise features as always but care not to expose myself and my work to someone elses computer/server.

    Sincere regards
