I'm currently using Windows 7 Professional with 4GB of RAM. I downloaded the trial of CS5 and I notice the default option is to install both 64-bit and 32-bit Photoshop CS5. Is it really necessary? Ideally, I just want to install 64-bit and save space on my hard drive.

You don't technically need it but there are still lots of plugins that don't work on the 64bit version and it doesn't take up much more space to have it just in case.

If you use (or want to use) plug ins, such as the awesome Niksoftware, you need to have 32-bit installed as plug ins don't work with 64-bit. Hopefully that'll change.

I only did the 64bit version... I don 't see any need for both. There are some plug-ins as mentioned but I'll wait for them to catch up
