    Camera Raw only offers to open 16-bit raw files in 8-bit mode

    steveJepsen

      I am using a windows CS6 Bridge => Camera Raw (8.2) => CS6 Photoshop (13.0.1 x64) to try to open various 16-bit raw files (.dng, .nef, .arw) which Bridge sees as 16-bit, but only an 8-bit version makes it into photoshop.

       

      How do I convince Camera Raw to do its job?

       

      Lightroom (4.4) is able to export a 16-bit .psd which sort-of-works but shouldn't be necessary.

       

      Thanks in advance,

      Steve
