Adobe today announced that one of its most popular products, Photoshop, will now run natively on Windows 10 on ARM and available as a stable software without the BETA tag. Photoshop now runs natively on 64-bit Windows 10 ARM Devices.
Adobe is working on bringing its Creative Suite apps to ARM since 2019. Earlier in 2017, Windows on ARM users could only enjoy support for classic x86 32-bit apps. Starting in Windows 10 build 21277 released in 2020, it is possible to run 64-bit apps on ARM64 devices. Also, On December 11, 2020, Adobe released beta versions of native ARM64 Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom. Finally, Photoshop lost its beta tag.
The change can be found on the following support page. It is also noted that Photoshop only runs in 64-bit operating systems, and the version of the Creative Cloud that you will need to install Photoshop is a 64-bit only application. The software requires at least Windows 10 build 19041.488.0, which is Win10 version 20H1. It needs minimum 8GB of RAM, and 16GB is recommended.
Unfortunately, the app doesn't include a number of features which you can find in the classic x86 app. The change log mentions these unavailable options.
- Import, Export and playback of embedded video layers
- Shake Reduction filter
- Invite to Edit workflows are not supported. To learn alternative ways to send invitations via Web, see Access and edit shared cloud documents.
- Preset Syncing is not on by default
- Windows Dial Support
- Generator and related features
- Opening or placing U3D files
- Starting Photoshop from Lightroom ‘Edit In’ command
- Oil Paint Filter
- Spell Checking and hyphenation for Hebrew and Arabic languages

According to Adobe, they will be added to the ARM version of Photoshop at some point later.
