I had CC2017 installed and when I opened my images they all opened in 16 bit mode.  After CC2018 installed my images now open in 8 bit mode.  I can switch them to 16 bit mode, but I would like the system to open the file in 16 bit mode, without having to jump thru hoops to get to a starting mode of my liking.  Cannot recall having to go through any setup when cc2017 installed on the system.  Thanks.

I'm thinking that you are talking about RAW files?  Open any RAW file into ACR, and click on the link at the bottom of the screen

Well, this works for this image, but when I open the next raw image, it defaults to 8 bits.  How does one set it up so that every raw image opened in ACR gets opened in 16 bits as the default?

That is the way. This is a sticky setting, it doesn't change on its own.

 

If it does, you may have a permissions issue somewhere. Do you have other preferences that keep reverting?

Actually, once I closed the application and re opened it, the 16 bit
setting was the new default.

Actually, in the current version of Bridge, (ver.11.0.1.1090, this setting is in the Edit drop-down menu, Camera Raw Preferences..., Workflow (ver.13.1.0.658). It's been moved from below the image. There is no longer a box there.

Thank you for this piece of information , I knew mine had changed somehow but couldn't figure out how.  Had NO idea it was in ACR settings.  I changed it to 16 & hopefully it will stay that way.
