hdr access only through photoshop automate?

I purchased an new version of Nic because my older version would not work on the new MacPro . I hate that you can only access the hdr by going to automate in photoshop then merge to nic hdr. The older version had it so I could click on the images I wanted to use in bridge then go to the top menu and open them in hdr mode much faster and easier to view the files. Any plans to make it easier to access the hdr portion of the program?
