I use it for browsing a huge amount of images in one spot very quickly. Example: I have a new brochure I'm designing for a steady client, the Smith Company. The client says "I want to use the headshot with the two founders in it. Not the old guy, the younger one — his son. And the guy he works with. The son is on the left. And no background. I want ...

This is what I understood... Yes there is a way, open up your animation panel. I created some shapes and you can see how they were together in first SS, after clicking on the make frames from the layer, it automatically create all the layer as frames in animation panel. Do according to my SS, is it what you needed? Sorry for these awful screenshots (open ...

Adobe Bridge is not so much a file manager as it is a digital asset manager. It offers much more capabilities to manage files than the Finder and Windows Explorer will ever offer by default, but it is not a replacement for either but rather an enhancement of both. Bridge facilitates all sorts of tasks, like batch processing all sorts of file ...

I never use Bridge. I find it a waste of hard drive space and pointless. And, if anything, detrimental due to the additional hard drive space it's cache files can chew up. In theory Adobe wants you to use Bridge to manage your files -- essentially replacing the Mac OS Finder or Windows Explorer to move, rename, and other organizational operations. Over the ...

If the Adobe forums are any indication, this isn't possible. This thread from 2010 concludes that it isn't possible, and this search shows a smattering of chatter about the subject, all older but with no solutions. I checked out the preferences (as you undoubtedly did) and didn't see anything myself in Bridge CS5. If this information is outdated and a ...

When I first saw Bridge I dismissed it but find it very useful now when browsing large amounts of images. Brilliant for things like RAW files as windows explorer/finder don't display thumbnails.

I am answering only to put a different point of view: I never used because I do not find useful for my daily work (graphic/web design). It should be of help for the people that work everyday with hundreds and hundreds of images to handle files quickly, adding meta information to files (to make it easier to search) and catalogue the various version of a same ...

Bridge is the coordinating hub of the Creative Suite. Synchronizing color management settings for all suite programs is done from Bridge, and can only be done from Bridge, to take one important use. As Lauren mentioned, Bridge displays actual thumbnails of many more file types than Finder or Explorer. It also allows instant play of sound or video files more ...

When you have the appearance the way you want it, go to Window > Workspaces > New Workspace and save your custom workspace (call it "Pete's Custom" or whatever). It will show up as a new choice in the workspace list at the top of the Bridge window. When you close Bridge, your new custom layout will remain the default.

Unfortunately, once an Action is made in Photoshop, it can't be changed later; a whole new one must be created from scratch. It's a real drag. As an alternative, but for Mac OS X only, you should look into Automator, which offers up a lot of at least basic tasks that can be easily combined to make somewhat complex workflows. Beyond that, you have to ...

Thanks to Yisela for letting us know it was removed as a feature in CS4. There are some alternative programs out there that accomplish this like IrfanView on Windows which also does a wonderful job at displaying .psd files as well. It turns out on Mac OS there is a product made by Adobe that allows svgs as well appropriately called Adobe SVG Viewer. I ...

In CC this seems to have changed slightly to a rather unintuitive process: With your layers ready to make frames from, open the timeline panel. You should see Create Frame Animation in the middle of the panel. If you only see Create Video Timeline, use the arrow next to it to switch to frame mode. Click the button. This will create a single frame in the ...

For the sake of documenting this, here's how I would go about it. To create the files: From within Acrobat X or XI, open the Actions Wizard and choose "Create New Action" In the Files to be Processed panel, either choose "Add Files..." under Default option: or choose them explicitly by clicking the document or folder (processes all documents in the ...

I Use a free image browser called Lyn for exactly this problem, you can change the preview background in the settings. Mac only though.

Bridge Quicksearch looks only at keywords and file/folder names. Only the Find dialog searches metadata, but the option is sticky. If you perform a search using metadata, Find will remember your choice after you quit Bridge.
