    Can I run Creative Cloud in 32 bit mode?

    Rhubarb Pie Level 1

      I have installed Creative Cloud on my 64-bit processor iMac running OS 10.9.1. I am having issues scanning into Photoshop and learned that it's probably because my Epson scanner/software is 32 bit (even though I have the most updated scanner driver installed, which is compatible with my OS).

      I am wondering if it is possible to run Photoshop in 32 bit mode, and if so, how?

      Also, are there any reasons why I shouldn't run Photoshop in 32 bit mode, if indeed I can?

      Many thanks!

          Hi Rhubarb Pie,

           

          Please find the system requirements to run Photoshop CC: http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop/tech-specs.html.

            Romshina, I do not think it is an issue of system requirements. My system meets the requirements for running CC.

              Hi Rhubarb Pie,

               

              With the new CC apps, most of the pro video and audio applications now require 64-bit operating systems to run. These native 64-bit applications include Adobe Premiere® Pro CC, Adobe Audition® CC, After Effects® CC, Prelude® CC, and SpeedGrade® CC. Flash Professional CC, Photoshop CC and Lightroom® also require 64-bit on Mac OS.

               

              By optimizing code for 64-bit operating systems, Adobe is able to deliver the performance gains that creative professionals require. Most of Adobe's pro video applications now require a 64-bit operating system, but the majority of video professionals have already transitioned to 64-bit capable systems, such as Mac OS X v10.7 (Lion) or v10.8 (Mountain Lion), or 64-bit versions of Microsoft® Windows® 7 or Windows 8. Because 64-bit operating systems offer superior performance, current and future releases of most of the Adobe professional video and audio applications will not support 32-bit operating systems.

                Romit,

                To be clear, the answer you're providing is: NO, I cannot run CC (more specifically, Photoshop CC) in 32 bit mode?

                 

                If so, do you have any insight into why it is that a scanner manufacturer such as Epson does not offer ANY products that are for 64 bit systems?

                 

                It is very frustrating to me that I can't scan directly into Photoshop like I'm used to. It's going to slo down my workflow.
