■ f you went through Chapter 5, you got a look at how powerful Bridge is for working with images. I've been using only Bridge — ever since it was in beta — to manage my images, until now it's my primary tool for keeping my ever-growing image library under control. Windows Explorer used to be my tool of choice for organizing and managing my images; for one who's been using Windows for more than a dozen years, it took a program like Bridge to get me to break old habits.

If you're new to digital cameras and Photoshop, you may have only a few hundred photos to manage. So far. But if you take a few weeks' vacation to that exotic island you've always dreamed about (and if you do, congratulations!), you could come home with hundreds more digital images. Those images add up quick — and can fill up your hard drive in a hurry. Solution: Manage your images with Bridge. Then go take a vacation!
