Now in this lesson, we are going to be taking a look at the newest member of the creative suite, the Bridge; this guy right here, which is the substitute for the file browser inside Adobe Photoshop CS2.
In other words, there is no longer a file browser inside Photoshop. Instead, you have this Bridge. So, you need to launch this separate application in order to organize your images, in order to find your images, in order to preview your images at thumbnails and so on.
So, what I would like you to do is take a moment to go ahead and launch the Bridge. On the PC, that means going to the start menu, locating the Bridge, so on and so on. On the Mac, you may have the Bridge setup already inside your doc. If not, go into the applications folder right here, and then find the Bridge, and then go ahead and double click on it.
Now, the beauty of the Bridge is that it services all of the creative suite applications. So, you can double click an illustration, it open that up an illustrator, and in design file opens up inside in design. In image, opens up obviously inside Photoshop.
Also, the Bridge handles color settings and the few other operations that will see in later lessons.
Finally, it allows you to search through Adobe Stuck Photos. So, if you want to purchase a stock photo from Adobe’s Library, you can do so. You can actually search right here as long as you have an online connection.
So, is not that groovy?
Anyway, you should be seeing a bunch of folders over here on the right hand side of the screen and over on the left hand side, you should see a well of pallets, bunch of pallets stock on top of each other. I want you to switch here to the favorite’s pallet by clicking on the favorite’s tab, if it is not already active and I am looking at the Admin level here on the Mac.
You maybe looking at some other level entirely, what I want you to do is switch to the desktop level. This assumes that you went in and installed your project files to the desktop as by default, and then you should see the project file’s folder here that was installed along with the series.
For me, that is the only thing on my desktop. For you, there might be a lot of other things that you have to contend with.
Go ahead and double click on this folder to open it up. And now, you should see Parts 1, 2 and 3, a folder for each one at the parts of these series. Now, I am going to now switch to the folder’s tab by clicking on yet -- to switch to the folder’s pallet, and that shows me a tree of folders, where all the folders are organized underneath each other, higher archipley. Let us call that tree in sort of computer lingo.
And I am going to drag -- notice I am dragging this vertical line to the right just little bit by dragging on this little sort of do hicky down here. Go ahead and drag it over so you have a little more room to see what you are doing and if it is not already twirled open, go ahead and twirl-open that part 1 folder just by clicking on this little do-dad here, this little twirly triangle. It might be a plus (+) sign on the PC, and then go ahead and click on lesson 2 in order to populate this right hand portion of the Bridge window with thumbnails.
