Join Mikkel Aaland for an in-depth discussion in this video Who is the host?, part of Getting Started with Adobe Camera Raw 5.
Who's the host? When you open a raw file from Bridge, you can choose the host. Your choice can make a difference in performance. If you select the Raw file, like I've done here, and then select file open in camera raw or simply, Command R, Bridge is the host. If I select an image in Bridge, select file, open with Photoshop, now Photoshop is the host. How can you tell which is the host? Just by looking at the camera window. If open image is hilighted or active Then it's hosted by Photoshop. If done is active.
Camera Raw all is not hosted by bridge. When bridge hosts Camera Raw, thumbnail production in bridge stops until you close Camera Raw. If Photoshop hosts Camera Raw, and you convert, let's say, raw files to the DNG file format and then close Camera Raw before this conversion is finished, Photoshop becomes inoperative during the conversion. Basically, most of the time it's best just to let Camera Raw be hosted from Bridge.
These keeps the work area of Photoshop operational and for the most part it won't effect bridge functionality.
