When I open a file (by double-clicking on it) from Bridge to Photoshop CC for the first time, my screen switches to the PS interface with no problem. However, when I open a 2nd file from Bridge into PS my screen doesn't automatically switch to the PS Interface. I am still looking at Bridge in the background. To see the PS interface I have to click on the PS software icon every time after the first import. I can open multiple files with no problem, as long as I do it all the first time. However, once I want to go back to Bridge and get another one, I have to do the extra step to work on them in PS. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? I'm on a MAC. It's driving me crazy. I never had this problem with CS6.
Which versions of software you are using?
The most recent versions of PSCC and Bridge. I just downloaded the latest upgrade and it still happens. I've been using PSCC and Bridge for the last year and never been able to solve this problem. If I drag the file across from Bridge the PSCC interface stays there okay but not if I double-click on the file. If I drag it over I have to have the software open side by side, which is not how I like to work. Any subsequent file opened keeps the Bridge interface on top instead of the PSCC interface.
It may be a Mac issue. I do not have a problem like that on my Windows 10 PC. When I double click a thumbnail. Bridge starts PS 2021 version 22.3.1 and ACR will open the RAW image file.
Friends who have Macs don't have the same problem. Someone posted a similar issue (Photos opened from Bridge not opening in Photoshop Interface) however it was a Windows machine and someone said that it was "Spaces", and that it was a bug. So, this bug doesn't seem to be solved yet as their fix doesn't work for me. My Photoshop Application Frame disappears with the 2nd file opened from Bridge.
My problem is not solved yet so would be happy for anyone else to jump in.
