I'm using Camera Raw in Bridge and CS4 64 bit. When the Camera Raw window opens in Bridge, the image is shown in 8 bit mode even though shot in 16 bit. I could not find a setting in either the Bridge or CS4 Preferences that accounts for the down sampling. If I do the same raw conversion in Lightroom, this down sampling doesn't occur. Any ideas? Thanks
</i> were the one that designated 8-bits in the Camera Raw workflow options. Click on what appears to be an underlined link right below your image in the Camera Raw dialog box. You will then be presented with the workflow options and you can set them to whatever you want.
<br /> Those options are sticky, which means they will remain in place until you change them again.
<br /> This is a screen shot of ACR in CS3, but the workflow options are located in the same place in CS4.
