Understanding the Power of Bridge

In addition to allowing you to see all your images, Bridge can be used to rate (assign importance), sort (organize by name, rating, and other criteria), and label. Figure 4, on the previous page, contains images that are assigned a rating and shown in Filmstrip view. There are four views in Bridge (Thumbnails view, Filmstrip view, Details view, and Versions alternates view) that are controlled by buttons in the lower-right corner of the window. You can also see that several images have been assigned a color label. Any number of selected images can be assigned a color label by clicking Label on the menu bar, then clicking one of the five color options. You can see a list of only those labelled files by clicking the Unfiltered list arrow, then clicking an option for a rating or labels.


You can use Bridge to view thumbnails of all files on your computer. You can open any files for software installed on your computer by double-clicking its thumbnail.
