A: For the time being, no, the 3DVIA for Photoshop Plug-in doesn't not work with Photoshop CS 5.1, but it works correctly for CS 5.0 version 12.0.4 which is the latest update of Photoshop. Photoshop CS 5.1 is the Photoshop included in the Creative Suite, which is the same version as CS 5.0.
In May 2011, Adobe Creative Suites 5.5 (CS5.5) were released which have new versions of some of the applications. However, the Photoshop that comes with them which is labeled version 12.1 is identical to the concurrently released update for Photoshop CS5, version 12.0.4, except for support for the new subscription pricing that was introduced with CS5.5.
