I've recently gotten PSE 15. Everytime I go to open something, usually a jpeg, it defaults to opening it in camera raw. How do I turn this feature off?

If a jpeg has been processed once by opening it with the option 'Open in camera raw', that choice and its settings are recorded in the metadata header of the jpeg file. Next time you use simply 'Open', it opens again in the ACR module (same if it has been processed by Lightroom).

In older versions, it was possible to ignore the camera raw settings by using 'Open As, jpeg', but that does no longe work. You would have to open the image with another editor (which ignores the raw settings) and to save a copy.

Actually it was a scrapbook paper that had never been opened. I will try making a copy and see if that does the trick! Thanks for the help!

Try this:

Let the file open in camera raw and click 'Open'. From the editor, save as PNG. I think you won't be bothered by the ACR module.

I just came across this problem, about a year after these postings. Thanks for the tip; I couldn't figure it out for myself. Unfortunately, along with stripping out the metadata that I need to get rid of, the old editor I used to make a copy stripped out all the EXIF info as well. (I then tried the Photos application that comes with Windows 10; it preserves all of the metadata--which, of course, it should. I'm lucky that I have an ancient copy of Paintshop Pro, which behaves badly in that respect.) This is definitely a defect in Photoshop Elements 2018.

Hello, I believe you should head to:
Photoshop > Preferences > Camera Raw
Here appears the "Camera Raw Preferences" window

Go to the last box "JPEG and TIFF Handling"
and select for JPG: "Disable JPEG Support"

This will disable the automatic opening of Camera Raw for JPG formats,
but you can also let Camera Raw open if the picture has the metadata to do it
(in this case "Automatically open JPGs with settings").

You can do the same with TIFF.
Hope it helps!

The question is not for Photoshop, it's for Elements.

The dialog you are showing does not exist for Elements.

Even if the issue is not a common one, I think Adobe must offer a solution. The parameters are saved in the file and the user has no choice: he as to open in ACR which is not always necessary. The old solution with 'Open As' was adequate.
