Enable Rotate View Tool in Photoshop CS5 / CS4

Hi, as you know 32 and 64bit versions of PS CS5 does not support OpenGL on 64bit XP system.

But I found a way to make it work...And it works smoothly and stable without any problems.

With a little registry edit you can use OpenGL support for easily rotate and 3d models preview.

here is the trick:

1- Go to Start menu > Run > regedit

2- Find,
HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Software > Adobe > Photoshop > 12.0 (cs5)

3- Add this new entry,

AllowOldGPUS > reg Dword and write 1 for value.

4- Start PS CS5 and go to settings enable OpenGL. Thats it!

With this modification you don't need actions to rotate anymore.

( Shortcut to use "R" )
