When I realized Photoshop CS4 left out the contact sheet plug-in, I went looking for help on the interweb.
Here’s what I found:
I use the contact sheet function in bridge as part of my workflow for creating cd covers for clients. It was a major shock for me to find it missing in cs4.
It took me a few minutes to find the bits of info needed to add this feature back into CS4 … so I thought it might be nice to spell it out for others. This is the solution that is going round the web at the moment … it worked for me.
If you don’t have the installation cd the files are also available here …
I hope this is useful.
1. From the Photoshop CS4 install disc, drop the ///Goodies/Optional Plug- Ins/Automate/ContactSheetII plug-in into the //Adobe Photoshop CS4/Plug-ins/Automate folder (this is for both Contact Sheet and Picture Package).
2. From the Photoshop CS4 install disc, drop the ///Goodies/Presets/Layouts folder into the //Adobe Photoshop CS4/Presets folder and restart Photoshop.
Optional: To add this legacy functionality back into Bridge (as a menu item):
3. From the Photoshop CS4 install disc, drop the ///Goodies/Optional plugins/ Bridge Startup Scripts/photoshop_contact_sheet_ii folder and the photoshop_contact_sheet_ii.jsx file into following locations and then restart Bridge.
Macintosh: //Library/Application Support/Adobe/Startup Scripts CS4/Adobe Photoshop/
Windows XP: //Program Files/Common Files/Adobe/Startup Scripts CS4/Adobe Photoshop/
Windows Vista: //Program Files (x86)/Common Files/Adobe/Startup Scripts CS4/Adobe Photoshop/

I’ve been gathering up all of my recent photos to show you.
Thank you for being so patient
(From http://www.thekitchenandthegardenpatch.com ) :
My parents and I went five miles down the street to Maple Corner Farm to get 4 gallons of maple syrup, one of which is mine.
While we were there, we were given a little lesson on how maple syrup is produced. Apparently it takes 40 or 50 gallons of sap out of the trees, slowly boiled, to make one gallon of maple syrup. Definitely worth the price.
And besides, maple syrup is amazing for your health; I use it whenever I can in recipes in place of other sweeteners.
My dad fondly remembers being at his grandmother’s house in Vermont, getting maple syrup from the tap on the trees and pouring some of it onto the snow to make candy. Before there was cane sugar in this country, people in New England used to make maple sugar by cooking and stirring the syrup until it was in powdered form.
I will be sure to post some pictures on here of the farm and the surrounding area.
It’s comforting to know that I walked among the trees where my syrup came from, and talk with the person who created it. As we listened to him talk passionately about the process, I started to realize that he doesn’t do this just because it’s been their family business since the 1830’s, but because to this day, he is still fascinated with the idea that something so wonderful can come from a tree.
Planted these little guys about 4 days ago
They are growing so fast that I had to take the plastic cover off the bed yesterday
I hope the basil, squash and sunflowers catch up
I can’t wait to get my new 110 adventures developed
I have about 3 or 4 rolls
Pretty soon, I’d like to get some medium format photos going too. Perhaps a holga will do the trick.
