Now, I am just going to close this down again, go back to fit-in window for just one second and the very the next thing we are going to do is look at a brand new Adobe product that comes with the CS2 and it is called Bridge.
Now, this is accessed in one of two ways. The first way is to come over here to the left hand side of the window. What we will do briefly is just come back to our Selection Tool, so we do not have the Type highlighted anymore. We can access Bridge by either going to the File menu and choosing Browse which most Photoshop users will recognize as the standard option for bringing up the Photoshop File Browser, but better than that is if we come up there and go to the right hand side of the Control palette. You can see the icon here is to activate Bridge or simply to browse.
If you go ahead and click that, it will launch the new Adobe Bridge. It may take a few seconds for it to launch the first time on your machine, but once it is here, you are interface should look roughly the same as what I have in this window.
Now, the way the Bridge works, it does look very similar to the original Photoshop browser but, it is not to be confused with that in any shape or form. It is very different and much more powerful.
Now, the Bridge is broken up into very specific sections. We have the Main Preview Window here, which is where we see all of our images and documents and files. We have the Favorite section over here on the left hand side, a Preview window, and also Metadata and Keywords. Now, just coming up here for a second to the Favorite section, we can see that we have access to the general part of the computer. You have access to any Version Cue workspaces that you are may be using as well as Collections, which are possible to save as well.
The important section is also down here at the bottom. This allows you to access your main user on the hard drive, the Desktop of the computer, and in the case here of the Mac, any documents and pictures. This is more of a default inside the Favorites. While PC users are not going to see this either and personally, if I am working in Bridge, I might not need access to my documents and pictures because I store them elsewhere.
So, what we can do is either control click on one of these on the Mac or right click if you have a right button mouse and simply say “Remove from Favorites” and that will remove it from the list. Let us do the same with Pictures. It will open up the room and you will notice that this window with the type actually expands or decreases according to how much information we have in it. So, the type is actually got big enough filling the space out.
