I don't know if you have Windows or OSX, so let's go with Windows.
On the Windows level:
If you want your camera raw file to open in Photoshop and it doesn't, right click on it and choose
Open with > Choose default program… select Photoshop CC and checkmark "always use the selected program to open this type of file".
If you do not see Photoshop CC in the list, click on the Browse button at the bottom and navigate to where the Photoshop CC.exe is kept and choose it.
If you use Bridge CC (a separate download in Creative Cloud) you have to also set the default editor there.
Edit > Preferences > File Type Associations > find your camera raw file and select Photoshop CC from the dropdown menu.
Sorry I did not make myself clear and thank you for your response. Your answer is correct for certain issues but it is not a solution for my issue.
Using Windows 7, my issue is:
Here is what happens:
1. Double click on a RAW file in Bridge CC. (NEF extension for Nikon)
2. Make Changes.
3. There are three buttons on the bottom right of the "Camera Raw 8.7.1" dialog box. "Open Image" "Cancel" and "Done".
4. When I click on "Open Image" it opens in Photoshop CS6 rather than in Photoshop CC.
5. If Photoshop CC is already open NOTHING seems to happen. But when I open PS CS6 then the image(s) I opened from Camera Raw load.
6. If Photoshop CC is NOT open, then PS CS6 will launch and load the image.
7. If Photoshop CS6 is open then the image loads in PS CS6.
I had PS CS6 installed prior to PS CC and do not want to uninstall it until I am sure that I want to keep PS CC.
I have CS6 and CC, but I will have to check my settings later to be sure. I also have D50 nefs. I can't say anything until I run my checks.
are you opening Camera Raw through Adobe Bridge
could you go to the preferences of the adobe bridge and select start-up script ,
in the start-up script check is the Photoshop cc 2014 is checked or not
if it is not checked please check it and uncheck the Photoshop cs 6 if it is checked
I just discovered something after changing preferences. I two icons on my Windows 7 desktop. One is named Bridge 6 and the other is named Bridge CC. I'm sure that is the result of my renaming them because that is standard practice for me.
Checking properties I see they both point to the same application. So, in fact I DO NOT HAVE BRIDGE CC running. Does Bridge CC even exist?
By any chance have you got Bridge CS6 on "Start at Login"?
Look at the checkbox under Bridge CS6 Preferences > Advanced
Uncheck it if it is and reboot.
It is not set to start at login. I discovered the problem. I do NOT have Bridge CC installed and I don't know how to get it. I'm hunting now.
That does explain it. I had thought you did, but then again Bridge is not bundled with Photoshop anymore, so that's understandable.
Here's the link if you haven't already found it.
I AM A BIG DUMMY.
I discovered the problem thanks to deepakgahlot.
His suggestion was not the real answer but it pointed me in the right direction that solved the problem. He suggested I make changes to preferences in Bridge CC but I noticed the changes I made there were also reflected in Bridge CS6. That is when I discovered that both icons were pointed to the exact same application but the name of the icons read differently (Bridge CC and Bridge CS6). That was my fault.
I have now corrected the problem and all is well.
A BIG THANKS TO ALL OF YOU THAT took the time to help me. I feel much better now.
It was a short between the headset. Sorry 'bout that.
