Adobe CS4 Bridge Reviewed
Bridge is now much more focused on two primary tasks. First, it acts as a conduit between projects across multiple media with previews into every sort of CS4-based document, from InDesign to Fireworks. In Bridge, a designer can manage a campaign and its assets across print, video, web, and mobile media and in all their resolutions, without accidentally destroying high-resolution files. Bridge is also tightly integrated with Photoshop with a review mode that previews images for client selection in a pleasant carousel manner. The selection process is easily keyboard-driven and allows a photographer to sit with a client, review hundreds of image files, and make quick edits, all with three or four keystrokes.
Camera Raw is also easiest to access from Bridge, the assumption being that photographers will need to select and quickly edit exposure and color settings. Camera Raw is nondestructive to original image files—a photographer can crop, recolor, and basically re-shoot images without actually damaging the raw image file. Adobe Creative Suite 4 review
