Wild thought here..did you import the psds as a still or as a sequence?
(I think that option is available in Premiere Import but maybe confusiong with AEFX)

Check Preferences -> Media -> Indeterminate Media Timebase.
It was imported as a still.
In CS6 you can choose to import as either, and even retain layers. I just told it to merge all layers and bring it in as a still.
In the project bin window it lists them as "still image".
Thank you Fuzzy B,
This is a good workaround for now. The only bad thing is that if you do this in the middle of a project, it requires you to delete and then re-import all assets. Not doing so keeps everything at the default Indeterminate Media Timebase (IMT). Ugh.
What I would like to see is Adobe let us choose to specify durations in time increments (eg. ms or seconds) or frames. (the kind of frame that has no time value except what the sequence setting determines)
I don't understand why they would use "frames" (even though they're really not, since they're biased to the IMT) when they use seconds for the other transition values...
At any rate. Thank you for the help.
Maybe I'll go make this request.
It does seem to be that the frame count only matches when the Intermediate Timebase is the same as the sequence the image is used in.
Nope, you don't have to delete anything from a project. In Project panel just select all your footages you want to reinterpret, right-click and choose Modify -> Interpret Footage... Then set the frame rate to whatever you like.
Ah, but you see, we're talking about images not footage. The reinterpreting of frame rates does not apply to images. Modify -> Interpret Footage on an image asset will only allow you to change aspect ratios for images. Nothing else.
