When I browse photos in Adobe Bridge, they are often not as sharp as they really are, as if Bridge loads a low-res version of the photo for speed. This makes it hard to pick photos that are good, as I need to open them in Camera Raw to see how sharp they are first. The same low-res image is shown in Camera Raw the first seconds, until the image is "loaded fully" (I suppose).

Can I make Bridge show the high-res image?

eek this is annoying - I have the same problem - have you checked this post out – Rob Sep 18 '11 at 12:56
It appears your version of Adobe Bridge does not recognize the RAW files you use and uses the embedded JPEG. If you are not at the latest version, upgrade. – Itai Sep 18 '11 at 14:10
@Itai I was using 4.0.4, and yes there is a 4.0.5. But the change log only said something about Facebook. – Znarkus Sep 18 '11 at 18:26
@Rob Awesome thanks, that seems to have solved it for me :) If you add that as an answer, I will accept it. – Znarkus Sep 18 '11 at 18:26
