I have a confession to make…I love bracket key short cuts!
I was dabbling with Adobe Bridge yesterday and wanted to see if there were any time saving short cuts that make use of the bracket keys. To my delight, I found that each time I hit Ctrl + left or right bracket keys (CMD + left or right bracket keys on Mac) the selected image would rotate 90 degrees. Sweet!
You can also rotate multiple images at the same time by selecting the images (Ctrl + Click) and use the Ctrl + Bracket keys short cut to spin all the images at once.
Warning…A totally worthless time waster follows!
Need a break? Open the Preview window and the Content window, select multiple images in the Content window, play your favorite music track (while not my favorite, I find that Elton John’s Crocodile Rock works well) and use the Ctrl + bracket keys to choreograph an Adobe Bridge image spinning Fantasia (of sorts).
