You can also open JPEGs and TIFFs in Camera Raw. The simplest way to do it is select a JPEG, in this case in Bridge. I'm holding down the Ctrl key or right-clicking on the thumbnail. And just select Open in Camera Raw. Now that JPEG will open in the familiar and wonderful work environment of Camera Raw. Now if I have my Camera Raw preferences set here to Automatically Open All Supported JPEGs instead of Disable JPEGs. And I have done the same with TIFFs.
Now when I'm in Bridge and I double-click on a JPEG, it will automatically open in Camera Raw rather than in Photoshop. So now, let's see how we can do this in Photoshop. If you're in the Photoshop environment and we go to open a JPEG and we find a JPEG. Because my settings in Camera Raw were set to open JPEGs and TIFFs. Automatically, when I select a JPEG under Format, Camera Raw will show up.
If I haven't set those preferences in Camera Raw to open automatically, JPEGs in Camera Raw. The format here would be under, if I opened or selected a JPEG, would be JPEG. But to open in Camera Raw, I just select Camera Raw and now it'll open automatically in Camera Raw. And there's lots of advantages to working with JPEG and TIFFs in the Camera Raw, non-destructive editing environment and it's way cool.
