One of the frequently asked questions in technical support is: “Where did the Contact Sheet and other automated features go in Photoshop CS4 and CS5?” In order to answer this question, I recorded a video tutorial explaining how the Output Module in Bridge replaces the Contact Sheet feature (Where is Contact Sheet in Photoshop CS4).

The information about the Output Module in Bridge (in the video above) is still accurate, but I needed to update the links if you prefer to use the optional “Automate” plug-ins (Contact Sheet II, Picture Package, Web Photo Gallery, Script for Layer Comps to Web Photo Gallery from Photoshop CS3) in Photoshop CS4 or Photoshop CS5 . Here are the updated links to download the Automate Plug-ins:

• For Mac OS: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=4963

• For Windows: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=4688

Note: Please review the ReadmeCS5_Optionalplugin.pdf file in with the downloaded files for installation instructions.

As you will discover, the Contact Sheet II, Web Photo Gallery, Picture Package and Layer Comps to WPG plug-ins from Photoshop CS3 are supported in 32- and 64-bit Windows, and only 32-bit Mac OS.

Here’s how to run Photoshop CS5 in 32-bit and 64-bit modes:

• To run Photoshop CS5 on Mac OS as a 32-bit application:

Select the Adobe Photoshop CS5 application file, installed by default in the Applications/Adobe Photoshop CS5 folder.

Choose File > Get Info, and select Open in 32 Bit Mode.

Deselect this option to run Photoshop CS5 in 64-bit mode.

• To run Photoshop CS5 in Windows as a 32-bit application:

Close Photoshop CS5.

Navigate to the Program Files (x86) > Adobe > Adobe Photoshop CS5 folder.

Double-click the Adobe Photoshop CS5.exe file.

• To run Photoshop CS5 in Windows as a 64-bit application (if your version of Windows and your hardware supports 64 bit):

Close Photoshop CS5.

Navigate to the Program Files > Adobe > Adobe Photoshop CS5 folder.

Double-click the Adobe Photoshop CS5.exe file.
