Now, if anyone has a mac, can they tell me is there anyway to access camera raw (jpegs's also, not only raw files) in CS4 without going through bridge.
In CS3 I would go to file>open as. There is no "open as" in CS4.
In CS4 go to File>Open, then browse to the file that you want to open and select it (single click). In the lower left corner of that same browse box there is a drop down menu labeled 'Format' It defaults to the type of file that you select, i.e. if you select a jpeg it defaults to jpeg. You can change it to 'Camera Raw' and then click 'Open".
