Can’t access scanner from Adobe Photoshop CS5

Recently, when you use Adobe Photoshop CS4 or older, you can Import image using your scanner device. And now, most people have use Adobe Photoshop CS5, or even CS 6 (the newest version). But when you want to Import image via scanner device, there’s no options when you go to File – Import – (your scanner device). This is because Photoshop CS5 doesn’t include TWAIN plug-in, not like in CS4. This means, if you want to Import image via your scanner device, you need to do it with your scanner software. But you can also scan from Photoshop like the previous version by downloading TWAIN plug-in for Photoshop CS5

  1. Download the plug-in from Adobe site
  2. Close your Photoshop if you’re running it
  3. Open the zip packages, and find Optional Plug-ins/Win32 (TWAIN plug-in only available for 32-bit version)
  4. Extract Twain_32.8BA to Photoshop CS5 plug-in folder (C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Plug-ins\Automate)
  5. Restart your Adobe Photoshop

I hope this will help you
