Display problem with the latest update version Adobe Bridge 5.0.2.4

I have recently updated my CS6 (CD install version, not Cloud version) with the latest update available inside the Help Menu (version 13.0.6 x64 for Mac OS). After the update, the software is likely to run slower and I found a biggest problem is that Adobe Bridge can no longer display my Canon CR2 raw files as good as it does with the converted JPEG versions of the same photos, particularly the high-ISO noise of raw file looks like before noise reduction while the converted JPEG version looks quite clean.

Please forgive my non-answer to your issue, but as I was told by administrators of Photoshop Family forums in order to stop the email alerts that have been stuffing my inbox for at least two years, I have to first post to that particular forum and once it shows up I have to click on my name and tunnel down to my profile prefs and uncheck email notifications to stop the email alerts.

It seemed to work several days ago for the Photoshop Family "Feedback" forum and thought it would apply to all forums. My mistake.

So as to not have my post removed by administrators for being off topic I have to give you some answer that relates to your issue and here it goes...

Raws will never match JPEGs in Bridge because JPEGs are already cooked pixels straight from the camera's processor. Also your jpegs will never match on your calibrated computer display to what's seen on the camera's LCD preview because that tiny display is not color managed and calibrated. Raw previews in Bridge are generated by the ACR default settings which represent xmp instructions, not cooked jpeg pixels.

Noise reduction appearance will never be the same between jpegs and Raw because the incamera processor uses proprietary algorithms to cook the jpeg pixels that Bridge previews can't reproduce due to the fact Raw noise reduction is handled by ACR's proprietary default settings.

Besides that Bridge previews will not render noise reduction appearance to reduce processing load for caching huge numbers of images for fast loading previews. You can't have both speed and accuracy constantly caching thousands of previews at once some of jpegs and some generated by Raw xmp instructions. Which do you think of the two are going to load faster considering processing load?

Hope this stops the email alerts.

Well, that didn't work. My email notification prefs are already unchecked from the previous "Feedback" forum attempt.

Does anyone actually run this site?

Now you know why I do't frequent this site.
