There's another thumbnail browsing option that works directly inside Photoshop. It's known as Mini Bridge. To get to it, you go up to the File menu and you choose Browse in Mini Bridge, and you'll see this wide panel open up here at the bottom of the screen. Now currently, the Mini Bridge is directed to my personal user folder. I'm going to click on Desktop to switch to the Desktop, which is where I have my exercise_files folder and then I'll go ahead and click on exercise files. I'm not seeing the subfolders inside of there, however. There's two ways to get to them. One way is to click on this right- pointing arrowhead to the right of the word exercise files to see a list of all the subfolders.
The other way and perhaps the easier way is to just double-click on exercise files over here in the far left-hand side, and then I'll see a list of my subfolders. Now I can just click on one of them in order to see the image files inside that folder, in this case Welcome.tif, in order to open the image inside Photoshop. If at any time you want to hide the Mini Bridge panel, which you presumably do in order to focus in on the image, just double-click on the Mini Bridge tab and then that'll go ahead and collapse that panel. Now I can press Ctrl+ or Command+ a couple times in order to zoom in on the image.
And that's how you browse image thumbnails using Mini Bridge which runs directly inside Photoshop.
