Users of Haswell-powered MacBook Air have discovered issues when they run Adobe’s flagship software, the Photoshop. They noticed significant flickering on the screen when brush tool is enabled in the software.
When the problems were first noticed, Adobe responded that it could be caused by driver bug or GPU issues. Now, it has been confirmed that the flickers are caused by a software glitch and the new OS X 10.8.5 build is recently rolled out to resolve the flickering issue on Adobe Photoshop.
The problem seems to be severe enough that some users were unable to use Photoshop on their new MacBook Air. Some also suggested that the OS X Mavericks (developer release) could also solve the problem The OS X 10.8.5 is currently available only for developers and there’s no word when the general public will obtain the fix.
If the build can really resolve the flickering issue, Apple will surely soon deliver the update, since many consumers purchase MacBook to run graphics-related software, including the Adobe Photoshop.
