Bypass Camera Raw and go straight to Photoshop
If you're in Bridge and you want to open a RAW photo without going through the Camera Raw dialog, just press-and-hold the Shift key and double-click on the image. It'll bypass the Camera Raw dialog, apply the current settings to the photo, and open it in Photoshop.
Hi. Thank you, this was helpful. My main problem seems to be the file itself. When I open the RAW file in photoshop it looks like it’s been compressed in the process somehow. I shot some RAW + JPEG images on my 7D and when I preview them in Bridge, the JPEG is much more compressed (saturated and crushed blacks) yet when I open them both in CS4 it’s reversed the the RAW looks compressed.
