Adobe Blames Apple For MacBook Air Flickering Screens When Running Photoshop

Macworld UK’s Karen Haslam says some new MacBook Air owners are reporting flickering issues when running Adobe Photoshop and Adobe is laying the blame on Apple’s shoulders.

Ms. Haslem cites a discussion on the Adobe Forum, which started on 26 June, title: Photoshop CS6 – Screen flickering when using brushes with new MacAir 2013, the author writes: “A number of users experience severe screen flicker in Photoshop CS6 when using any of the larger brush type tools (cloning, eraser, brush, spot healing, burning, and dodging). As many on this thread are experiencing, it is awful and unusable! The flicker is screen wide black boxes, sometimes the whole screen goes black. It only seems to happen when we put the cursor over the image to edit.”

However, she reports that Adobe’s Chris Cox posted a reply, suggesting that a driver or GPU issue, or an issue with the LCD driver circuits, may be at the root of the problem, pointing the finger of blame at Apple, suggesting that it “might be a bad batch of hardware,” and noting that Adobe has been unable to replicate the issue.
