Hi Folks

I am running OSX 10.10.5 and Photoshop CS6, the plugin does work, I used the file from telegraphics.com (could not see one specifically for 64 bit or otherwise - but chose the one for CS6.

But this is crucial - it will only allow you to save images that are less than 256px x 256px, above that size and the save as ICO will not show in the save options.

Hope this helps?
