Adobe to launch webinar, Retina Photoshop on December 11

updated 01:39 am EST, Wed November 28, 2012

Create Now Live will offer sneak previews, Creative Cloud, more

Adobe will open its Create Now Live streamed event on December 11, a week later than originally planned, but will apparently announce a Retina display-compatible version of Photoshop CS6 among other events during the webinar. In a promotional video that has surfaced on YouTube, the updated version is shown running on a Retina display MacBook Pro, and features some close-ups on buttons and other items that betray Retina-quality graphics. Other features are highlighted in the video as well.

The online event will feature talks from Adobe seminar and magazine mogul Scott Kelby, A Liar's Autobiography animation director Justin Weyers, the founders of the Karlssonwilker web design agency and Adobe evangelists. In addition to unveiling "what's next for Adobe Photoshop," the free conference aims to help creative professionals move their skills and work easily from desktop to mobile and online, as well as promote the collaborative aspects of the company's Creative Cloud software-rental and storage service.

The version of Photoshop seen in the video also features glimpses of Smart Filters, a drop shadow editor, a feature that turns layouts into CSS code automatically, default type styles, conditional buttons, CSS swatches and other web-oriented features. While the Retina-ready Photoshop is expected to be announced, there is no clue in the video as to when the product might be released, or if it will be a free update for existing CS6 owners. Adobe has been slowly upgrading its main professional Mac tools for Retina display quality, having updated Lightroom earlier this month.

The conference is also likely to feature a sneak peek at Photoshop CS7, which is expected to be announced at Adobe's next major conference, Adobe Max, being held this year in May. Jeffrey Veen, vice president of products for Adobe, will give the keynote address at the Create Now Live event.
