Photoshop CS5 64-bit and 32-bit Plugin Issues

Last updated May 03, 2010 - Send Feedback

Like the program itself, plugins must be 32-bit or 64-bit, to work with a 32-bit or 64-bit Photoshop CS5.

The workaround is to use CS5 in 32-bit mode (see below), but there is a downside: unlike Photoshop CS4 which could use up to 3072MB memory, CS5 limits itself to 2100MB. This limitation is fine for moderate size files, but will be a performance hit for large files.

CS5 can be forced to run in 32-bit mode, but won’t use more than 2100MB memory
