I am a Creative Cloud user and when I try to open an image from Bridge to Camera Raw it says "Bridge's parent application is not active. Bridge requires that a qualifying product has been launched at least once to enable this feature". I don't understand this because I've used it before....any suggestions?
I think you have to open a raw file from Photoshop before you can do it in Bridge.
Was it a RAW file? Or JPEG, maybe?
RAWs always open in Camera Raw from Bridge (and then to Photoshop if you'd like to do further composite editing). JPEGs usually open in Photoshop by default from Bridge.
