Everyone's favorite image editing tool, Photoshop its going bit doubling as Adobe's John Nack has unveiled that Creative Suite 4 is set to have a 64-bit version too but only for Windows.
"The development is frankly bittersweet for us: On the one hand we're delighted to be breaking new ground with Photoshop, and when processing very large files on a suitably equipped machine, Photoshop x64 realizes some big performance gains," Nack said. "On the other hand, we work very hard at maintaining parity across platforms, and it's a drag that the Mac x64 revision will take longer to deliver. We will get there, but not in CS4."
While Windows XP and Vista users can probably start making fun of Mac users, Mac OS fans will simply have to wait until CS5 to finally get their 64bit Photoshop. Whatever camp you're into at the moment though, Photoshop's upcoming venture in the 64bit realm is something to be generally happy about. Plus, it's Friday.
