So, this is one way to look at images is with this thumbnail view. Now, what if you want to see sort of the best of both worlds? You want to see a big version of your image, so you know what it looks like, but you also want to see a bunch of thumbnails so you can keep track of which item is selected at a time.
Well then, you want to try out a new view inside the Bridge that is called the Filmstrip View.
Pop down to the lower right corner of the window here, and see this second icon in, it is the Filmstrip view icon. Go ahead and give it a click, and now you will see the strip of thumbnails along the bottom of the screen, along with the big preview of the selected thumbnail. And again, this preview is going to scale to fit the size of your screen.
Now, those thumbnails can either go along the bottom of the screen as they are here, or they can go along the right edge of the screen. And to send them along the right edge of the screen, just click this icon. See that little guy? Go ahead and give him a click, and now the thumbnails line up in a column along the right hand side of the screen.
And now as before, I can advanced from one icon to the next just by pressing the right arrow key, or because they are line up in a column here, I can press the down arrow key as well to get that exact same effect.
Now, couple of other things, if you want to scale these thumbnails in a column or in a row at the bottom of the screen either way, just use this thumbnail slider right here, just as you would when viewing thumbnails by themselves.
Now, notice sort of the irony is that the smaller, you make the thumbnails over on the right hand side of the screen, the bigger, the big preview get. So, that is kind of a nice thing. So, making things smaller actually makes them bigger.
See, that is where the irony comes in. But that is a nice thing that you can devote more and more room to this big old, huge old preview in the middle of the screen.
Now sadly, you can not zoomed this preview, independently or scroll it, pan it, any of that stuff, that kind of stuff that you can do inside Photoshop. The Bridge is in control.
