Now when you install Photoshop many programs also install whether you like it or not. Adobe Bridge is one of those programs. And actually that's not super-honest because you could go in when you are installing the program and de-select Bridge so it's not installed. You don't want to do that though. Bridge is a really great resource. If I go to the top of the interface and in the Options bar here there is a little icon says BR, that's short for Bridge.
If you have an older version of Photoshop, in other words if you just have Photoshop CS2, this BR will not be there, but the folder and the magnifying glass will be, it's pretty much the same icon, but without the BR.
If you have a version of Photoshop before CS2, so say for example you have Photoshop CS, you will have a feature called the File Browser and this is actually in Photoshop 7 as well, but it will not be the same as Bridge.
Bridge, especially the version of Bridge that comes with Photoshop CS3 is extremely powerful and robust far beyond what the old File Browser was in previous versions of Photoshop. So I am going to hit this button to launch Adobe Bridge, and essentially Bridge is a file browsing application.
Let's say for example I am going to go to my Project Files folder here. Select Part 1, select Lesson 1, I can see all the images that I am going to use in this lesson. Even the Photoshop file can be previewed. And the reason it's called Bridge is because it bridges all Adobe applications. You can now preview Illustrator files and InDesign documents right here in Bridge. It plays videos, it plays music, it does it all, and later on I am going to show you how to input additional information, so you could search through your images quickly and easily.
Now I am going to maximize this and I am going to select this image. I am going to use the Slider here to drag it to the right and make this bigger. Now I can click here and rate these images. Give this four stars. Of course, I have to give myself five stars, I am obligated to do that. And on this GoldenGate bridge, give that one star because there are people in it still.
Anyways, then I could come back over here to my Filter Tab and change how I sort my images or what I am seeing here. I could also add labels to my images and anyone of a number of things. A lot of that stuff we are going to be covering later, but Bridge is a really great application for looking through large folders of documents of almost any type.
Bridge really has a large vocabulary so to speak of images and files that it understands and can preview. And not only that though, Bridge also has specific features that we can use, say for example, under the Tools Menu we have access to use Photoshop Automation tools, Illustrator Automation tools and even InDesign Automation tools. We even have access to Device Central, which is Adobe's mobile content developing program.
If we have the entire Creative Suite, I realize this is a little bit sophisticated here, but we can go to the Create Suite Color Settings and select our color management settings for the entire Creative Suite one time in Bridge. If you don't have Bridge or if you don't have the entire Creative Suite, you have to go into every single application individually and change the color settings for that particular application.
So you'd have to go into Photoshop and adjust Photoshop's Color Management Settings and then go into Illustrator and adjust Illustrator's Color Management Settings etcetera and etcetera over-and-over again for every program. Or if you have the whole Creative Suite installed, you could just go at the Edit Menu and click here to edit this once in Bridge. Bridge will then manage all color management settings with all Creative Suite applications.
So it does a lot of really cool kind of secret hidden tricks. It's a lot more than just your average File Browser. Using Bridge we also have access to a program called Camera Raw. A very sophisticated, advanced and fun to play with tool to adjust digital negative files from a digital camera. We will talk about all of these things towards the end of the training series.
