Rosetta and scanning
Hi;
I have a power mac 2X's 3GHz Quad core Intel-Xeon.  I'm using the Adobe Creative Suite 4 using Photo Shop CS4 and I'm trying to scan in images.
(I did the goodies thing  ) for the TWAIN plugin but, It doesn't show up when I try to import but it's in the Plug in's folder of PS.
The GREAT minds at Adobe says that I have to use the Rosetta mode. When I go to the "get info"  I don't have a check box for Rosetta.  Apple says Sometimes, you might have a Universal version of a graphics or Internet application on your Intel processor-based Mac that you want to run via Rosetta instead of running natively. Because some Universal applications may continue to rely on existing plug-ins, you may sometimes need to force a Universal application to run in Rosetta to accommodate the plug-in. Check with your plug-in manufacturer(s) to see if Universal versions are available, too.
Adobe is blaming Apple,  Apple is blaming Adobe.  In the mean time I can't scan!  What should I do???

Actually it is neither Apple or Adobe's fault. You could start Photoshop in Rosetta but you would take a massive performance hit. The problem is the scanner manufacturer have not made their plugin Universal. so the only way to get it to work would be to fire up PS in Rosetta.
But using a $1000 application as a scanner interface is a bit silly. Since you can't do anything in Photoshop while you are scanning. So you should do what savvy Photoshop users have been doing for years now. Use the stand alone software that came with the scanner or buy VueScan or something similar.
Now you can scan and work at the same time.
