I am looking for a light weight editing solution, and I want to explore whether Bridge plus Camera Raw is for me. So I installed Bridge plus a trial of Lightroom Classic, which I tried in the past and which I don’t like. My operating system is Windows 10 Pro.

 

Now when I right click a photo in Bridge and select “Open in Camera Raw…”, then I get:

 

Camera Raw editing is not enabled.

Camera Raw editing requires that a qualifying product has been licensed.

 

What does this mean? A trial of Lightroom Classic is not enough to try Bridge?

Lightroom-Classic does not use ACR. (when a photo is sent from LrC to Ps it uses the Camera Raw settings applied by the Lightroom develop 'engine'.)

"Camera Raw editing requires that a qualifying product has been licensed."

You would need to install Photoshop also to use ACR. ACR is a Plugin for Photoshop only.

 

OTOH, Bridge is 'free' (by itself) and can be used without a paid subscription, but you do not get ACR unless you subscribe for Photoshop . (eg. in the Photography Plan 20Gb).

Thanks! Installing Photoshop trial did the trick. As far as I can see, ACR with Bridge is quite a nice solution, very light weight, and without the need to set up a database. I'll try it out for a few days, then decide. For Photoshop I have no use.
