Use Bridge to stay organized, streamline your workflow, and make your life easier.
- Hello, I'm Tim Grey. I've been taking photographs for as long as I can remember. And for the last 15 years, I've focused my energy on helping photographers make the most of their digital workflow through books, magazine articles, speaking appearances, and video training. In this course, I'm going to guide you through Adobe Bridge, a powerful application included with Photoshop and Adobe's broader creative suite. Adobe Bridge is often referred to as a browser application because it allows you to browse your photographic images along with other supported file formats.
But Bridge is actually much more powerful than that enabling you to manage, sort, organize, and even share your digital photos. We'll start off by taking an overall look at Adobe Bridge so you can get to know the interface and features as well as how to configure Bridge to suit your preferences. We'll then explore the basic organizational features so you can use Bridge to help you locate images you want to optimize in Photoshop, for example. Once you understand the basics of Bridge, we'll delve into some more advanced topics. I'll show you some of the more powerful organizational capabilities of Bridge and also show you how you can leverage Photoshop from within Bridge to make working with your photos more efficient.
Finally, we'll take a look at some of the ways you can share your images from right within Bridge. After you finish this course, you'll have an appreciation for all the features offered by Adobe Bridge, as well as the confidence to put this tool to use to manage and share your digital photos.
