Installing Nikon 9000 for CS2

Discussion in 'Digital Darkroom' started by dean doe, Sep 4, 2005.

  1. Just bought a new Nikon 9000 scanner, it only allows for installing
    with Photoshop 7.0 and Photoshop Elements 2.0. I have CS2, do I have
    to get software upgrades from Nikon, help!
  2. That doesn't sound right. if you do need an upgrade to the current version of Nikon Scan,
    it is availbale on Nikon's website. I'm pretty sure it is free. I am using a Nikon Coolscan
    5000 with CS2
  3. Although, I have the 8000, I find it better for you to install the software seperate from Photoshop. This way, if you have a powerful computer, you could scan and work on images at the same time. If you install Nikon Scan as a plugin, you will only be allowed to scan and Photoshop will be useless while scanning.
  4. Concur with Danny. Although you can't scan directly to a P.S. file from Nikon software. I
    found it convenient to leave P.S. free to photo edit, and let the scan software scan.
  5. You can use any nikon film scanner with Photoshop CS2. I am using a Nikon LS-2000 with Nikon Scan 2 from Photoshop CS2. Just Install your Nikon Scan software from the CD and use the Import facility in CS2 to access the scanner drivers.

  6. Not an anwer - just another plea for help! I am running Mac OSX 10.4.8. I recently
    upgraded from CS to CS2. I have been unable to figure out how to get the Nikon Scan
    Plugin 4 into this new version. At present, I am scanning through CS, saving the file in a
    temporary folder, then opening it up again in CS2 in order to process it!

    I have also tried scanning as a stand alone process but, for some reason, when I do this, I
    am not offered the options to save the files in the folders where I want them. I have to
    save them in the root directory and then move them in Finder.

    I guess I need to move a copy of the scanning plug-in into CS2 but have not figured out
    how to do this yet.

    Can anyone help, preferably in simple terms.


  7. Please ignorre the last posting. I overlooked the obvious - making an alias of the plug-in
    and dragging into the Photoshop plug-ins folder. Works like a dream.

    Sorry for any inconvenience.
