I just bought CS6 for Mac for a mere $1400 CDN, using a brand new mid-2011 iMac. I have an Epson V300 Photo Scanner. If I install the Epson Scanner Driver and EPSON Scan Utility v3.51 from Epson's website (says it's compatible with Mac OS X 10.7 and even 10.8 - see link below), will I be able to use the File >> Import function to scan directly into PhotoShop? With my old Epson Scanner, I have to use Apple Preview to do my scans.
I'm confused about all this TWAIN 64-bit stuff. Makes no sense to me. Just want to be able to put a document into my scanner and go to PhotoShop File >> Import and see my scanner like I was able to do in my old version of PhotoShop.
You should be able to import from it via the ImageKit/ImageCapture drivers - but TWAIN is still risky (lots of bugs in the drivers), and mostly unsupported in 64 bit (I don't think Epson ships a 64 bit driver).
You're probably best off scanning inthe stand alone application.

It should just show up, but I don't know every scanner model's specific drivers.
This worked perfectly with my new Epson Perfection V300. I go to File >> Import >> Images From Device and a box pops up and I can scan directly into PhotoShop CS6 now. Thanks for the help.
Only one other question - my old scanner (Epson Perfection 2400) still shows up in PhotoShop CS6 File >> Import >> Images From Device list -- I disconnected it and deleted it from Mac OS X System Preferences >> Print & Scan which deleted the scanner there but it still shows up in PhotoShop CS6 File >> Import >> Images From Device. Any ideas on how to get rid of it? The ImageKit/ImageCapture scanning software always defaults to the old scanner for some reason and I thought that by deleting it from System Preferences >> Print & Scan, it would be deleted everywhere.
