    Camera Raw in Photoshop CS3

    I just got Photoshop CS3 and I must say I am in love. It is so much to learn I will be stuck in front of the computer for life. My question is concerning the camera raw feature. When I go to browse and open Adobe Bridge I can select to open a picture in camera raw mode, yet I am pretty sure my little Coolpix L18 does not save pictures in camera raw format. So how can I open a picture in a format that I did not select from the camera. Is this actually the photoshop raw mode which I have heard about. What is the differenct between Photoshop and Camera Raw. I think my brain is raw from all this thinking. I'm gonna go get some snaps in (take some pictures) to ease my mind. Thanks for your help.

    Re: Camera Raw in Photoshop CS3

    CS3 now allows you to open Jpegs in Camera RAW as well as native RAW files. Basically Camera RAW allows you to do non-destructive edits to your photos. I'm sure someone else can provide a much more detailed explanation than that.
    I race down mountains on a bike and I take photographs, but never both at the same time :nono:

    Feel free to edit any of my photos as long as you explain in detail what you did.
