Re: How to change default wia scan file type in photoshop cs5



yeah, CS5 is kind of goofy for scanning.

You have to go to Adobe and D/L something called "PSCS5_OptionalPlugins_Win32"(assuming your OS is 32-bit) and extract a file called "Twain_32.8BA" from the folder OptionalPlugins/Win_32.

Copy/Paste this file into the Program Files/Adobe/Plugins/Import-Export folder.
Now you are good to go to scan from the Photoshop File menu using your installed scanner.

I'm just sick of it, really. Scan via WIA and you get no option to
save/use any other file format than BMP. So you have to save as

Is there any way to change this asinine behavior? I mean, BMP? Who
wants BMP? Shouldn't a default always be JPG for anything, other than
PSD these days? I'm sure this is a Windows thing, not Adobe, but
still.... How about some way to scan from a super popular Epson scan/
printer directly without PS CS f'n 5? LOL

PS I'm not really as upset as I make it sound. It's just for
entertainment value. ;-)
