When I double-click on a .CR2 file in Bridge, it fires up Photoshop CC2019 and Camera Raw 14.4.1. I can then open the image in CC2019 when I'm done adjusting in CR.
However, if I right-click on the image in Bridge, and select Open in Camera Raw from the menu, whenm I click Open Image in CR, it opens the file in Photoshop CC2018. All the settings in the prefrences point to CC2019, so why does the right-click method make it open in CC2018?
This is with Windows 10.
Try opening a raw file in Explorer but select open with, and make sure the system uses 2019 as the default.
It only happens if I open Camera Raw directly from Bridge, and then click Open Image in CR. Opening a Raw any other way opens Photoshop CC2019 first, then Camera Raw.
Not only that, but if I launch CR from Bridge while I have Photoshop CC2019 open, and click on Open Image in Bridge, the image does not open at all.
There's no real reason to use this workflow, of course, but I can't figure why it would work this way.
Just a thought, what would happen if you reinstall Camera Raw?
To be honest, it's not an issue. I almost always use "Open" from Bridge, not "Open in Camera Raw", and both Bridge and CR work great otherwise.
Yea, things get messed up depending on how PS is installed. If you install an older version after a newer one, things really get messes up. I'm kind of going through that now, with ESTK not opening with my latest version, and opening files. Too lazy to change all the references.
Actually, it's CC2018, AKA v19. In addition the the issue I described above, I recently noted that if I open some images in Bridge, and select Photomerge from Tools > Photoshop, it opens CC2018 for that as well.
Also, Browse in Bridge doesn't open Bridge on either Photoshop CC2018 or CC2020, opening the CC Desktop app instead
It all works as intended in the Creative Suite versions.
