Photoshop CS 6: Can't use old 32 bit plugins in MacOS X 10.8

I recently upgraded to Creative Cloud and have discovered that the Twain nor any other plug-ins will run in Photoshop CS 6 on a Apple Computer running OS X 10.8. My understanding is it's related to Photoshop not able to recognize plug-ins in 64 bit mode, but can in 32 bit mode. And since Apple platforms only run in 64 bit it is not possible. Was suggested to use the Imagekit from Photoshop but people are having problems with that as well. Would like to see this be fixed so that everyone who likes to scan direct into Photoshop can.

Plugins are working just fine for us and other users on 10.8.

TWAIN may not do much in 64 bit (because few 64 bit drivers exist), and if you have older third party plugins that are 32 bit, they also won't work in 64 bit Photoshop.

That has been my battle is getting my Epson Artisan 837 to work with Photoshop CS 6. I loaded the TWAIN plug-in for Photoshop CS 6 but it doesn't appear nor does the Imagekit work for me either. I installed the Epson Scan Software they indicated was for OS X 10.8. You think I should check with Epson in this instance?

If they did not provide a 64 bit TWAIN driver, then it won't work, and the only interface you have is via ImageKit (which broke in 10.8).
