Join Mikkel Aaland for an in-depth discussion in this video Opening RAW files in Camera Raw, part of Getting Started with Adobe Camera Raw 5.
Let's see how to open a RAW file in Adobe Camera Raw. I'm in Photoshop. Now I'm going to go under File > Open. And I'll navigate to one of my image files here. And you can see these are in the DNG file format. Which is Digital Negative Format. It's a RAW format. So when I go to open a RAW file or DNG, it will automatically open in the Adobe Camera Raw interface. If I'm in Bridge and I want to open a RAW file, I simply select the image I want to open and if it's a RAW file, I can do a couple of things, I can either hold Ctrl + Click or right + Click.
Open in Camera Raw, that's one way. The other way is to go under File and then Open in Camera Raw. And, you can see here there's also a keyboard command, Cmd + R. And finally, I can double-click on the selected image and it will open automatically in Camera Raw. Now the beauty of being in Bridge, is I can also have multiple RAW selections. And when I double-click on one of the now, all three will open on the left in the film strip. So you can have multiple RAW files open in Camera Raw at the same time.
