Photoshop CS6 for Mac OS uses Apple's ImageKit's scanning technology to allow you to scan directly from Photoshop CS6.
This technology works in Mac OS 10.6.8 and 10.7. It supports scanning in Photoshop running in 64-bit mode. Although TWAIN does support scanning in 64-bit mode, few scanner manufacturers have provided 64-bit drivers. For more information on scanning with TWAIN, see TWAIN plug-in | Photoshop CS4, CS5, CS6.
Note: This technology does not work in Photoshop CS6 when running under Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion). Adobe is working with Apple on this issue.
Install the scanner driver supplied by your scanner manufacturer. Likewise, install any Mac OS updates that have scanner software updates, or any updates from your scanner manufacturer.
Adobe has tested with the following scanners:
- Epson GT -1500
- Epson Perfection V600 Photos
- Epson Perfection V700 Photos
- Epson 4490
- Canoscan 8400F
- HP ENVY100
For more information about using Apple's scanner software in Snow Leopard or Lion, see Apple's technical document: OS X Lion, Mac OS X v10.6: Printer and scanner software
To scan in Photoshop CS6:
- Open Photoshop CS6.
- Choose File > Import > Images From Device.
- Select your scanner from the Devices list on the left.
