What operating system are you using?
What scanner do you have?
I have a PC, Win 7.
Scanner: Epson perfection V500 Photo.
Have you installed the Twain plugin?
(in the 32 bit version of photoshop cs5)
Are you asking how you get the contact sheet II under File>Automate?
Yes, I have repeated that about 5 times. I go to file unzip....then no files that I can do anything with?
Do I copy them into Progams,Adobe, Plugins?
What do I do?
Yes, about the Contact sheet II.
In the Optional Plugins>Win 32 (the one you download and unzipped) folder right click on the Twain_32.8BA and choose Copy
Then go to
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Plug-ins\Import-Export
and right click in a empty space and choose Paste
Start the 32 bit version of photoshop cs5 and see if your scanner shows under File>Import.
Also, did you install the drivers and software for your scanner?
The ReadMeCS5_OptionalPlugin.pdf included in the download should give directions for installing the contact sheet II plugin
The Contact II. Worked.
Yes, I installed the scanner software & drivers today.
In my list there is only a file Twain_32...not the one you said....I copied & pasted it???
But did not work
You might have Hide extensions for known file types checked in your folder options.
Is your windows 7 a 32 or 64 bit operating system?
Have you tried the scanner to see f it works outside of photoshop?
In the File>Import menu does it show for WIA import?
The reason all this is happening...I had to wipe my computer & reload everything.
I have win 7 32 bits. Looking at the Twain_32 file again I did see the 8BA under file heading.
Scanner shows under the WIA & I can scan through that, but it used to show independant in the Import file..with all the setting that comes with my scanner (Import would open my scanner). Through WIA just one button...scan?
Thank you for the time you have taken helping me work through this problem. I scan all the time through my CS5.
You copied the Twain_32.8BA to
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS5\Plug-ins\Import-Export
Have you applied all the updates for photoshop cs5?
(Help>Updates from within photoshop cs5)
If you right click on the Twain_32.8BA and choose properties, does it say anything about the plugin being Blocked?
You are great.
It was blocked.
Everything is fixed.
