Adobe Systems is hosting a free online event on December 11 where it may reveal the new Retina edition of its flagship Photoshop program.

One of the topics of the Create Now Live event invites participants to "See what's next in Adobe Photoshop." And a YouTube video promoting the Photoshop presentation appears to show someone using the software on a Retina Display MacBook Pro.

That video clip has led Japanese blog site Macotakara and others to speculate that Adobe will show off a new update of Photoshop CS6 designed to support the high-resolution display on the 13-inch and 15-inch Retina MacBook Pros.

This past August, Adobe announced that it would update Photoshop and other Creative Suite 6 products to support Apple's Retina Display. The company promised the update to Photoshop would arrive this fall. And since fall ends December 20, it seems a fair bet that the Retina version of the famed photo editor will be part of the event's agenda.

CNET contacted Adobe for comment and will update the story if we receive any information.

Create Now Live was originally scheduled for December 5 but was pushed back to December 11.

The event will run from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. PT, and will be live-streamed on the Adobe Creative Cloud Facebook page.

Anyone who wants to attend the virtual event can sign up at Adobe's registration page. Beyond presentations on Photoshop and Adobe Creative Cloud, the event will kick off with a keynote speech by Jeffrey Veen, vice president of Adobe products, and close out with a Q&A session.
