TWAIN Scanner Problems with Adobe CS4 (Mac)? Read this

skorzy had warned me that CS4 might not work with my current scanner as apparently CS4 hasn't been playing nice with TWAIN scanners. For those of you who are having this problem, there is a solution.

Running on: Snow Leopard
Scanner: CanoScan LiDE90

What's happening:
You install the drivers to your scanner and it's not showing up on the File>Import list.

Go here and download this file:
http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=4047

Once you've downloaded the file, click on the file for your language, then go to:
Goodies>Optional Plug Ins>Import-Export>TWAIN.plugin

Take this "TWAIN.plugin" file and drag it into your existing Photoshop CS4 folder in your applications folder in that same format: (so Goodies>Optional Plug Ins>Import-Export> drop the TWAIN.plugin here)

THEN you download your scanner drivers (even if you've downloaded them already, re-download them), restart your computer, restart Photoshop, and it should be able to see your scanner now!

If you wanna read up again on how to do it, go here:
