I installed PS at my new laptop and everything went okey but when I try to launch PS 2021 I keep gettting a crashing error at launch. If I open it by the apps I get a message with "Photoshop 2021 suddenly crashed" and if I try to open it with CC I get "Photoshop 2021 cant be opened -11"

 

I already reinstalled it and nothing. The other programs are working alright.

Adobe now offer a beta version of Photoshop that’s optimized for the M1 Macs. You can install it from the Beta section of the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop app. Some features aren’t working yet (see Photoshop (Beta) for Apple Silicon is here!). If you are having problems with the Apple Silicon beta version of Photoshop, the forum for that is here: Photoshop (Beta) If you are using the standard installation of Photoshop from the Apps category of the Creative Cloud desktop, app, that is an Intel ...

If you are using the standard installation of Photoshop from the Apps category of the Creative Cloud desktop, app, that is an Intel version that is not optimized for Apple Silicon, but should still work through Rosetta translation. I don’t know how to troubleshoot problems with it because I don’t have an M1 Mac yet.

I think you should add a huge banner on your site with the info that your apps have big issues with the M1 Macs and you don´t recommend to download them. I signed up for the all-apps-plan but from the apps I need only InDesign is working. Photoshop (Intel), PS Beta and Illustrator (Intel) all freeze while launching. This way CC is useless for me and I think I will cancel the plan and swith over to Affinty where all apps are already optimized. Really wonder why a small company like Affinty/Serif can offer optimzed and running versions of their apps (for such a low price!) while a big company like Adobe isn´t able to do it. I´m really disappointed!

I had the same problem. Illustrator, InDesign, Premiere Pro, AfterEffects, etc. worked fine but when I tried to open Photoshop it would get stuck at the Halide Bottleneck plugin and the rainbow ball of death would appear. Eventually I signed out and uninstalled everything related to Creative Cloud (even the desktop version), then reinstalled the apps one by one. It worked after that.

I'm having the same issue opening the Beta app.

Simply will not open the Ps 2021 (w/Rosetta) nor the Ps Beta. 

No good for Ai, but InDesign 2021 okay.

For what it's worth, this thread includes the specific instructions regarding the beta that finally worked for me:

PS läuft bei mir leider auch nicht. Auch die Beta Version läuft auf dem M1 Chip nicht. Lightroom , Bridge und Photoshol Elements funktionieren. Ich hoffe, Adobe optimiert das Programm zeitnah....!
