On this page Adobe claims:
If your scanner manufacturer does not support scanning in 64-bit mode, or you have issues scanning with TWAIN, you can scan into Photoshop CS6 using Apple’s ImageKit technology, which is built into Photoshop CS6, does not need a plug-in to be installed, and provides access to a large number of scanners.
That doesn't work with my Epson Perfection V350 Photo. I wonder if it actually works with any scanner. With Photoshop CS6 have wiped out many scanners that don't have 64-bit compliant drivers, why doesn't Adobe connect with Apple's Image Capture app? Why doesn't the V350 work with the ImageKit technology alllegedly part of Photoshop CS6?
Adobe needs to restore the import from scanner capability that has been part of Photoshop for years.
Yes, Photoshop supports ImageKit in Photoshop CS6.
So I'm not sure what you're trying to say / ask.
Unfortunately very few vendors supported TWAIN in 64 bit (probably because TWAIN announced many years ago that there would never be a 64 bit version of TWAIN).
I thought I was very clear. If ImageKit support doesn't, as Adobe claims, drive scanners for which there is no 64-bit driver, then it has no practical value.
Adobe says that incorporating ImageKit into Photoshop CS6 "provides access to a large number of scanners," and I like to see the evidence. Is there a list showing any of that "large number of scanners," or is it a secret? Is there a single scanner which is verfied to work with Photoshop in this manner? Is there a user who can confirm success scanning with ImageKit in Photoshop CS6?
The ImageKit scanning feature in Photoshop CS6 supports exactly the same scanners as Image Capture does. Unfortunately, this feature is currently broken in Photoshop when running Mountain Lion (CS6 was released prior to the release of Mountain Lion). We are working closely with Apple to resolve the problem. This issue has been discussed in detail in several other forum threads since the release of ML. As soon as we have more information, we will let people here in the forum know.
If you are running Lion or Snow Leopard, you should find that indeed a large number of scanners are supported without any additional software needed, and can be used to scan directly into Photoshop CS6. Apple publishes a list of hundreds of supported scanners in a tech note, which you can find at <http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3669>
Finally, something concrete!
Yes, I know about the Apple list of supported scanners, and mine is on it. Which is where I began this quest to discover why it doesn't work. Now I know. I wish someone would tell Adobe support so they can simply tell users what you just told me.
>> Is there a list showing any of that "large number of scanners,"
That would be all scanners that support ImageKit on MacOS. No, we don't have a separate list.
Yes, we verified many scanners. Yes, it works.
Why are you claiming that it doesn't work?
What are you really asking here?
The ImageKit scanning feature in Photoshop CS6 supports exactly the same scanners as Image Capture does. Unfortunately, this feature is currently broken in Photoshop when running Mountain Lion (CS6 was released prior to the release of Mountain Lion).
That is a quote from PDFerguson, above. Does that answer your question, Chris?
He/She understood my point and addressed it. I'm sorry you didn't get it.
Nicmart, Yes, Staff are Adobe employees, some of them post in their spare times (during Photoshop builds complies, from home...) , and are writing the actual code, some are in Customer Relations.
The MVPs are not Adobe Employees
Does "staff" mean the person is a paid employee of Adobe?
In the case of Mr. Chris Cox, he is a top Adobe engineer who has been writing Photoshop code for some 16 years or more.
We are very fortunate and grateful that he contributes to the forum as a volunteer.
