Hi all,


I had to open photoshop via Rosetta to be able to use my photoshop extensions, otherwise they are not there. However, I am using removal tool all the time and it is not available while using Rosetta. Does that mean I have to chose what to use??  As 1 I can use only via rosetta and another without rosetta only. Really getting crazy now with the apple and questioning why I switched from windows...😭😭😭

Hi @Ana32950700vt7r yes - per the documentation running PS in Rosetta mode disables advanced features that need the M1/ARM processors to work.

My first reaction when seeing a post like this is to determine the need of the depricated plugin/extension and if vital - reaching out to the developer to have them provide an updated version. M1 series has been out a number of year so this isn't a new issue.

Hi. I have M3 pro but think there is no difference beween M1. My first experience with macbook so all the info i find online is like a black forest for me... i am using 2 tools mostly : remove tool (cannot be run on rosetta), and my extension that can only run on rosetta. So... in my case I just have to chose which one i prefer more? No other option of using both? I find it super crazy while paying so much for a laptop for using it for eding fast and then cannot use it properly. 😂

@Ana32950700vt7r your blame is misplaced - your angst needs to be with the extension developer. M1 was the first Apple ARM chip released in 2020 which means they have not updated in 3 years. M3 is the latest but it doesn't matter in relation to the issue.

 

What specific extension are you using? There may be more compatible alternatives.

@Ana32950700vt7r I agree with Kevin, best place to try get this fixed is with the extension developers. Apple's ARM has been around since 2020 so they are lagging a bit.

The world of computers is almost always 2 steps forward one step back. I too feel aggrieved when apps go out of date due to compatibility with new hardware/operating systems. Reason generally given is that the newer gear is way better and the manufacturers can't keep building in fixes so old software continues working. 

 

Frustrating I know

Also be aware that Apple has no intention of making Rosetta available forever. It’s not even the first Rosetta...that was the one Apple provided during the PowerPC to Intel CPU transition in 2006, and just 5 years later, they dropped that Rosetta from Mac OS X after they decided enough Mac users had made the transition to Intel. 

 

Ultimately, an Apple Silicon compatible replacement must be found for that extension, because for example if you have to buy a Mac in the future and the oldest version of macOS that it can run no longer inicludes Rosetta, then the old Intel-based extension will be dead at that point.
