    I purchased a new computer with windows 7
    also purchased adobe master collection, containing
    Photoshop cs5. this package has two versions of Photoshop
    32 bit and 64 bit, both separate programs. the 64 bit runs
    faster. BUT cannot install plug-ins
    my only option is to decide which to use:
    32 bit for play, photo touch-up
    64 bit for serious work, create something new
    hope this helps someone buying or upgrading

  2. You can install plugins in the 64 bit version, but they need to be
    written for that version. There is a lot of older plugins that are not.
    One answer is to contact the author and ask (nicely) to please up date
    the plug in. You of course can have both versions of PS5 on your
    computer at the same time. If you need to use a plug in that will not
    run in one version or the other, then save the work and restart in the
    other version. It works quite well.
