The biggest change in the new MacBook Pro, announced at Apple’s media event on Thursday, is the elimination of the keyboard’s function keys. The Pro’s keyboard now has a contextually relevant Touch Bar at the top. That makes the keyboard more versatile than ever, with keys that change according to the app you’re using.

One of those developers is Adobe, a natural fit.

“This new MacBook Pro and Photoshop are made for each other,” Bradee Evans, experience design manager of Adobe Photoshop, said in an on-stage demo at Apple’s keynote presentation.

Evans showcased how Photoshop, software in most creative professionals’ toolkits, will work with the new MacBook Pro’s Touch Bar.
