I am trying to open files in Camera raw from Bridge but get the following message.

"Bridge's parent application is not active."

Both Bridge and CS5 are open and I have opened camera raw previously.

Any suggestions.

Cheers

It is Version 6.2.

If I double click on a .NEF image in Bridge then it opens into Camera Raw.

It I right click or use the icon to "Open in Camera Raw..." the I get the error message.

I would like the option to open JPG files in Camera Raw so I could batch process some adjustments on my old files, particularly my photos taken underwater.

Thanks for your help,

Not sure why you're getting the "parent" error message. With regarding to editing JPEGs, though, you can do that by visiting the Camera Raw preferences. At the bottom of the dialog is a section titled "JPEG and TIFF Handling". Set the JPEG popup menu to "Automatically open all supported JPEGs" so that you can open your JPEG images into ACR (instead of directly into PS, for example).

With the suggested changes, with the Photoshop application open, the choice of File - Open in Photoshop and picking a JPEG file will cause the JPEG file to be read into the Camera Raw plug-in, where you'll have the choice to use the controls there on it.  That has nothing to do with Bridge, and may explain your difficulty with the answer.

Yeah i have just the same problem. And it also happens when i want to copy development settings from a adjusted raw-file. Alot of different things won't work. Almost half the options in right-click is stopped by this strange error.

I doubt it can have anything with the raw-file converter to do since it's no problem to open with doubleclick.

So, ADOBE, what is the problem here?

Just for the record, both Photoshop and Bridge is open when this happens and i got my CS5 Design Premium only a week ago.....so i'm scratching my head and cursing at the same time here.

This is a work-PC with Windows XP Professional if that matters.

Really hope ADOBE or some other smart people can come up with a sollution for this problem....really soon

I just fixed this problem with installing the new Adobe Patch Installer. Apparently there was a shitload of little bugs that needed fixing and our problem was one of them...so now everything works perfectly.

Here's the link to the download area.: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/thankyou.jsp?ftpID=4733&fileID=4431

Hope it works for you too!

I ran the Patch Installer and it didn't help me with the "Bridge's Parent Application is Not Active" message.
