When I save them in any format or open them with Photoshop they don't look like the pictures I edited at all.
Save the images how? How are you opening them? When you edited the images in Camera Raw, did you click Done? Or Open?
It's kinda tough to understand the workflow of what you are doing...are you viewing the images in Bridge then opening them in Camera Raw?
When you are editing noise and sharpening, are you viewing the images at 100% to evaluate the results?
Jeff, thanks.That was the problem. I was editing in "fit to view" instead of at 100% view. So I was over sharpening or not reducing the noise enough. Still, in Camera Raw "fit to view" they looked great but really crappy anywhere else. Edited at 100% in Camera Raw they appear anywhere else just as they do in Camera Raw. I use ACDSee by the way instead of Bridge. Like the look of that workflow browser much better than Bridge. Thank you, again. Wassili

ACDsee is only going to show you the embedded preview not the RAW as processed by ACR unless ACR embeds the preview, itself. Bridge will decode the RAW file to show how it looks in ACR.
