I have the same problem but for the Mac I open Silverfast from Photoshop 7, now I have Photoshop CS2 and cannot find the plug-in. Please advise me.

You will need to run the Silverfast installer again, so the alias to the Silverfast plugin will be installed into your new Photoshop version.

Dear simonart

you also could create an alias to the SilverFast Photoshop plug-in manually and put this in your Photoshop's Import-Export folder yourself.

The detailed description:
(1) Open your Finder / hard disk drive
(2) Navigate to /Applications/SilverFast Application
(3) Locate the Photoshop plug-in (an .8ba) file, probably in the sub folder "SilverFast (Scannername)"
(4) Create an alias to the plug-in there
An alias can be created by selecting the file and then choosing "Make alias" from the finder's "File" menu.
(5) Select the newly created alias and select "Copy" from the "Edit" menu
(6) Change to the folder /Applications/Photoshop/Plug-ins/Import-Export/
(7) Select "Paste" from the finder's "Edit" menu

This action should have created a shortcut in the import/export folder of Photoshop to the SilverFast Photoshop plug-in located in the SilverFast programme folder.

Restart Photoshop and check your File>Import plug-in list.

Hi everybody, I am looking for a cheap black and white small printer. I am not sure why the Samsung printer is usually way cheaper than an HP and print quality is about the same. Does an HP B/W laser printer have higher yield toner cartridges or is it just a brand thing? What brand of black and white small office laser printer is cheaper to operate, Samsung or HP?
