Adobe Bridge CS3 Update Now Available

Adobe has released an update to Adobe Bridge CS3. Available in all six editions of Adobe Creative SuiteĀ® 3 software and all professional Adobe creative applications, Bridge provides centralized access to project files, applications, and settings, as well as XMP metadata tagging and searching capabilities.

The update is available through Bridge via the Help menu > Updates and also through Adobe.com. The update includes the following enhancements:

Multilevel Keywords
Organize your keywords into groups and subgroups as deep a hierarchy as you want by using the multilevel support in the keywords panel. Convenient keyboard shortcuts for applying single keywords or parent keywords are now available. Search Advanced options allow for storing hierarchy into the file metadata. In addition, easily import and export keywords using tab delimited file formats.

Improved Cache Management
Control the size of the Bridge cache of thumbnail and metadata information to better improve responsiveness. The cache can also be compacted to improve performance.

Other additions include new preference control over video and audio file previews, improved scrolling and renaming and usability improvements to customized workspaces.
