I have searched here, Adobe Support, read the User Manual, and can not find any information on how one changes from 64 bit to 32 bit. I am trying to create Time Lapse sequences and CS 5 tells me I have to be in 32 bit mode. How do I get there? I am running an HP Pavilion dv7t-3300 i7 QuadCore with 4gb RAM and Windows 7 Pro 64 bit.
close PS cs5 64bit and open PS cs5 in the start menu.....or in the Program File (x86)/adobe folder
Try again with the 32 bit version. I don't think you can switch to PS 32 bit within the PS 64 bit version.
I'm only using the cs5 trial version to date but I remember the installer giving me the option not to install the 32 bit version of PS. Which I did as I don't use 32 bit anymore.
My CS4 32 bit is in that location ( program files x86/adobe ) It should be the same for cs5 - but, can't say for definate.
Do a search for it and if it comes up blank try the installer again....it may have been missed first time round.
To tell the difference:
In the Splash screen, it says Photoshop v12 32 if it's 32 bit and V12 64 if it's the 64 bit. To get to 32 bit, go to Programs (x86) Adobe> Adobe Photoshop C5 and scroll down to the PS application button, about 3/4 the way down the list. Click on that and when the splash appears, be sure it says v12 32 bit.
I have searched the and don't have a 32 bit version. During
the download and installation, I might have not chosen to install the 32 bit version.
I think I will try to reinstall and see if in fact there is an option. Based on my experience to date, it looks like one really needs to have both installed in order to have the maximum use of all the functions in CS5.
If you want to load multiple images into a single document as separate layers then simply use File->Scripts->Load Files into Stack which works just fine in the 64bit version of Photoshop. The File->Import->Video Frames to Layers command is for importing videos, not images.
Similar concern here. No 64 bit version. I purchased the Photoshop CS5 downloadable upgrade. I have installed the program but only see the 32 bit version. Image / Mode shows 8, 16 and 32 bit versions and no 64 bit.
Start Programs offers only a single version of Photoshop which based on the splash screen is 32 bits. Did I miss something during the install?

Windows XP....is that the reason no 64 bit?
Yes. Win XP is 32-bit.
These are referring to the operating system and application software and have nothing to do with Image modes!
Providing you got one of the 64-bit versions of Win7.
Found the answer. I didn't install both versions of CS5. I went back to the installer and found that in fact I had only installed the 64 bit version. I went ahead and installed the 32 bit CS5. So I now have both. I imagine I can switch between them. Which goes back to my original question. How do you do this? Can you do it from one version to the other from within CS5? Or do you need to quit one before opening the other?
Specifically, what's not working for you in 64 bit?
If it's failing to import the video, that may be a problem with QuickTime. I do know at least one person on this forum has recently claimed that with a current version of QuickTime Pro they've been able to import dirctly into the 64 bit Photoshop :
Yes it is annoying, sorry. The File> Import> Video Frames to Layers... relies on a plug-in that's 32-bit only. There is another way to get video frames into layers using Ps CS5 in 64-bit mode.
First open your video file, File> Open...
Then in the popup menu (upper right) of the Animation panel you can find 'Flatten Frames Into Layers'
Does this answer your concern?
Ummm... kinda not, Steve. :)
Can't open one that way since I don't have PS as the default to open a vid file. So it just opens the player with no choice to "open with". Setting PS to default would be a royal pain since I don't want to (usually) view vids in PS.
You don't need to change any opener associations with my suggestion. Launch Ps, then go to File> Open... choose your .mov file (I'm using the Samples CheeziPuffs.mov on Win 7 64) and click Open.
Is that not working for you?
He's talking about going into Photoshop itself, choosing File - Open from the menu, then choosing your file in the Open dialog. Are you saying doing exactly that somehow starts your video player?
Well, with GOM Player installed and set as the default video format opener, I'm still not seeing any problem. If I remove QT 7 from the system then I get an expected warning on Open stating that QT 7.1 or greater is required.
Can you open video files in Ps 32 bit? We have to use a different code path to use the QT 32-bit when running Ps in 64-bit mode.
No problem in 32bit.
And FWIW, after building machines for more than a dozen years I've found (and also known by other builders and coders) installing QT on any windows machine is tantamount to installing a virus.
Might be fine for mac (yes I have one too). Strange things begin to happen to all kinds of things not even related to video. And uninstalling it doesn't help. Formatting is the only way out. It can't be removed completely. (Even tho it says it's gone) But, that's my experience and I'm stuck with it! :)

Ah, so I'm not the only one who feels that way about Apple software on PC.
You can root out many of the excessive things QuickTime sets up by carefully going through an AutoRuns listing, by the way.
I too am trying to open an .mov file in Photoshop CS5 64bit on OSX Lion. Your suggestion doesn't work - Photoshop refuses to open my .mov file using the File>Open functionality. I don't have the 32bit version. Help!!
