I am using Photoshop 2021 on a Macbook Pro with BigSur 11.3 and having issues with image sequence and timeline functioning. I read on a previous post that my issue was solved by opening Photoshop using Rosetta, but I do not see this as an option - any ideas what's going on?

Here's what I did to try to open with Rosetta:

Go to applications > Photoshop 2021
Right click > Get Info
I know I SHOULD be able to check a box to "Open using Rosetta" under General, but it's not there.

HELP?!!

"Open using Rosetta" is only available if your running Big Sur on an M1 processor Mac.

Not available on Intel processor Macs.

 

You can verify what processor your mac has by going to Apple>About This Mac.

I'm running Big Sur on M1 processor! I can see "Open using Rosetta" as an option in other applications, but not Photoshop, which is the application I mainly need to use Rosetta for. I can't figure out why I cannot open Photoshop using Rosetta.

Yes, but - this doesn't explain why I can't open Photoshop using Rosetta. Photoshop 2021 is a Universal application which means that I should see the option to "Open using Rosetta" under Get Info, but it's not there. I want to open Photoshop using Rosetta so that I can work with an image sequence which does not work while the app is open using Apple silicon.

Hi Jeff,

 

I had to choose to open my Photoshop 2021 using Rosetta due to the incompatibility of the NIK Collection with the M1 chip (I really need the NIK Collection working), the only way to have the NIK Collection working on Photoshop is using it on Rosetta . My question for you is, does the PS perfomance gets affected when running on Rosetta? 

 

I look foreward to hearing from you.

 

Thank you in advance.

Yes according to adobe and various users photoshop does run slower using Rosetta.

How much slower depends so just try it and see if it's something you can live with.

 

Here's an adobe kb of the various Rosetta compatibility issues:

What is the exact version of photoshop 2021 do you have?

 

I believe version 22.3 is the first native silicon photoshop version

 

In photoshop go to Help>System Info and look at the top line for the Photoshop Version
