Photoshop ARM processor support | Windows

Run Photoshop in native mode on Windows 10 ARM devices

As of May 2021, Photoshop now runs natively on 64-bit Windows 10 ARM Devices.

Minimum System Requirements:

  • Windows 10 ARM device running Windows 10 64-bit v19041.488.0 (Win10 20H1)
  • RAM: 8 GB (minimum)/ 16 GB (Recommended)
Note:

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. Do not install Photoshop if you intend to continue to install 32-bit applications from Adobe.

Windows ARM native known issues 

Issue Workaround

 

 

Cannot find the Photoshop for ARM installer in the Creative Cloud Desktop Application

 

 

 

 

Photoshop for ARM will only install and work on ARM hardware that meets the minimum system requirements. If you have qualifying ARM hardware and you do not see the installer, check manually for an update (Help > Check for Updates).

If it still does not appear, try logging out/back into the Creative Cloud Desktop application.

 

 

 

 

Cannot find printer driver when printing

 

 

 

 

Contact your printer manufacturer for updated drivers that are ARM-compatible.
Drivers that work on ARM are not universally available, and drivers may not be backward compatible with older printers.

 

 

 

 

Photoshop freezes on launch

 

 

 

 

Update the OpenCL/GL Compatibility Pack. The Photoshop/WinArm installer installs a required Microsoft Store component on your system: the "OpenCL/OpenGL Compatibility Pack". After installation, we recommend updating to the latest version of this component from the Microsoft Store App: 
1) Launch Microsoft Store App 
2) Select: "..." --> "Downloads and updates" 
3) Click "Get updates"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cannot install 32-bit applications after upgrading your version of Photoshop

 

 

 

 

Your computer must be running Windows 10 64-bit and you must be using version 5.3 or later of the Creative Cloud Application. Note that if you previously installed 32-bit applications, installing this version of the Creative Cloud application will only support installing 64-bit applications.

 

 

 

 

Cannot import, place or open video formats

 

 

 

 

Importing video formats is not currently supported in Photoshop for Windows ARM.

 

 

Are legacy versions compatible?

No. Unsupported versions of Photoshop were not designed or tested to work on Windows devices with ARM processors.
