My Epson Perfection 4490 Photo scanner originally shipped with Photoshop Elements 2.0 with an embedded TWAIN plug-in for direct control of the scanner. I've recently upgraded my Mac to OS X 10.7.3 & installed the latest & greatest Photoshop Elements 10, only to find this S/W is incapable of controlling my scanner. Why doesn't the S/W have the historic capability of 2.0?

I won't update from Elements 9.x because it doesn't support scanning.

Did you install the optional TWAIN plugin?

And we still recommend scanning outside of Photoshop because the third party scanner drivers tend to be very buggy and cause Photoshop to crash.
