How to Convert Raw in Adobe Bridge


Adobe Bridge is a media management software from Adobe that is commonly used by photographers and graphic designers to enhance organization and management of a large number of files. RAW files, in particular, become easier to manage using this software. RAW files are unprocessed images that originate from a camera and contain data from the camera's sensors. RAW images cannot be viewed like standard images and require conversion to a viewable format. Conversion of RAW images to viewable files is possible within Adobe Bridge if the computer also has Adobe Photoshop or After Effects installed.

  • Launch Adobe Bridge.

  • Select the files you want to convert from RAW to another photo format. Select more than one photo by pressing the Command or Ctrl button and clicking on the files holding the photos.

  • Select "Tools" and then "Photoshop." Next, choose "Image Processor," and Adobe Bridge will open Photoshop

  • Determine the location on your computer or the disc where the converted images will be saved.

  • Select the file type you want to use for the RAW conversion. Choices include a JPEG, PSD or TIFF format. If you select JPEG, enter the image quality you want to use for the conversion, with 12 being the highest and 1 being the lowest. If you intend to print the images, selecting "Convert Profile to sRGB" to retain image quality.

  • Define your preferences in Section 4 based upon your specific needs. If you have an action script to run, such as adding frames, vignettes or color alterations, then select the "Run Action" box and define the action you want to run. If you want to maintain the color profile from the photo, select the "Include ICC Profile" box.

  • Choose "Run" and allow Photoshop to process the photos.

  • Review the converted images in the file format you selected at the location you defined.
