Hello Everyone

I have been starting to use Adobe Bridge as an interface tool between the images and Photoshop tool.

Found it to be quite useful as you can not only view the pictures but have a look at the EXIF Data as well at the same time.

You can also add to the EXIF data and the big thing I have discovered is the "Open in Camera RAW" function, even if the picture was not taken in RAW format.

I have experimented with this with good results.

Give it go if you haven't so far....

As a survey, let us know what your thoughts are

It's also a great way to 'rate' your photos, meaning you can quickly do a search for any of your better images.

I can't, for some reason, open images in Camera Raw (I've got CS2). I've only got jpgs at the moment though. I'm guessing Adobe CS2 Premium came with camera raw?

I should have said that I use CS3.

I think that there was a quatum leap between CS2 and CS3 in regards to RAW processing.

Can anyone confirm???

I found cs3 to bulky compared to cs2 and prefer to stay with cs2. I did not find any editing benefit in cs3 vs cs2 from what i have been doing.

Yes you are right. I upgraded from CS2 to CS3 only to get the Raw Viewer options.

Although, I keep coming back to Photoshop Elements for most of my editing - I'm used to it and find it easy to use.

I reckon Bridge is really good to do the initial view and cull of all those multiple photos that look almost the same.

.....hey....Almity....that's GOOD. Only problem for me personally is that when you go to the next step and go from Camera Raw to open in Photoshop, it defaults to opening in CS3 and not Elements, which is my preference....but I'll keep experimenting.

Thanks for the tip.

Thats Easy, this isn't a Photoshop thing, you will not be able to fix this in Adobe Bridge, its a Windows thing.

Open Windows Explorer, right click on a file image, JPG or RAW.

In the right click context menu, you will see an "Open With....." option. Click That

Then another menu will come up which should have "Choose program..." Click That

A Program List comes up, hopefully you will find Adobe Elements, highlight it, and click the "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" selection box.

Then OK, this should default to Adobe Elements.

Hi Dave

I was actually talking about Adobe Bridge in particular.

Adobe Photoshop, regardless of version, has always been bulky, leaves a larger footprint and is quite memory hungry.

Photoshop isn't my choice of Post Processing Software, I use it because, people have a version handy and when I do my photography classes, everyone has a copy already.

My choice is Corel - Paintshop Pro. I believe they have got the Rawshooter Essentials engine for their RAW processing. I hopefully I have got that right, making it a powerful piece of software, if you get to use it, you will see it quicker, more responsive and easier to use.
