Working between Bridge and Photoshop

From: Photoshop and Bridge CS5 for Photographers New Features

Video: Working between Bridge and Photoshop

We are going to look at two small improvements which will help the way we work between Bridge and Photoshop. For starters, let's go ahead and select an image and then double-click it to open it up in Photoshop. We all know that once in Photoshop, we can click on this Bridge icon here in order to navigate back to Bridge. Yet one of the problems was that in Bridge CS4, once we are here, we are kind of struck here unless we were to open an image, or unless we knew a shortcut to go back to Photoshop. Well, new in Bridge CS5 is a new icon.

We are going to look at two small improvements which will help the way we work between Bridge and Photoshop. For starters, let's go ahead and select an image and then double-click it to open it up in Photoshop. We all know that once in Photoshop, we can click on this Bridge icon here in order to navigate back to Bridge. Yet one of the problems was that in Bridge CS4, once we are here, we are kind of struck here unless we were to open an image, or unless we knew a shortcut to go back to Photoshop. Well, new in Bridge CS5 is a new icon.

And I like this icon because it's a little boomerang here. If we click on that boomerang icon, it will quickly and seamlessly take us back to Photoshop, and once here, we can click on that Bridge icon. So, just some nice little icons that are visuals, which can help us jump back and forth between the two applications. The other little improvement that I want to highlight here is a tool. We all know that we can navigate to the Tools pulldown menu and then select Photoshop, and here we can take advantage of much of the strength of Photoshop by tapping into these different tools.

Sometimes this is just a nice way to kind of fast-track our overall workflow in these different particular areas. Well, there is actually a new tool here, and it's called Lens Correction. Now not only is Lens Correction now included here, but once you get to Photoshop, Lens Correction has been completely overhauled. Now while I'll be talking about this later, what I want to do here is simply introduce the idea of this filter. Previously, what you had to do is move sliders and make some subjective edits. Well, now new in Photoshop CS5, what we'll do is actually kind of dig deep into the metadata of the file.

It will determine how the image was captured, on what camera and on what lens. Then what it can do is automatically correct different types of distortions. So, now, again, we will be talking about this filter later. Here, I just wanted to highlight that we can now access it from right inside of Bridge.
