This document includes information about where to find and how to install the TWAIN component that was previously installed with your application for versions earlier than Photoshop Elements 9.
Important: Do not move plug-ins from previous versions of Photoshop Elements into the Photoshop Elements 11 > Plug-Ins folder, or set the Photoshop Elements 8 (or earlier) > Plug-In folder as the Additional Plug-Ins Folder in Preferences.
If you would like to have TWAIN support on your Macintosh system, then we strongly recommend that you access your device through Rosetta (PPC) OS. Otherwise, we suggest that you scan your image in first and then separately open the image in Photoshop Elements.
To install the legacy TWAIN plug-in for Macintosh, copy the ImportModules folder from:
//Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements 11/Support Files/Optional Plug-Ins
//Applications/Adobe Photoshop Elements 11/Support Files/Plug-Ins
We strongly suggest you use WIA support for your device, if available. If your device does not support WIA drivers, then we recommend you try updating your TWAIN driver. Please contact the manufacturer of your device for further TWAIN support.
To install the legacy TWAIN plug-in:
For Windows (32-bit), copy the Import-Export folder from:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 11\Optional Plug-Ins\
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 11\Plug-Ins\
For Windows (64-bit), copy the Import-Export folder from:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 11\Optional Plug-Ins\
C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 11\Plug-Ins\
