Exporting Bridge’s cache (where Bridge stores recently viewed image previews) can expedite the loading of thumbnails in a number of situations such as:
• If you move folders of images around using the OS and then use Bridge to view those same folders
• If you have a very large number of images that you have viewed with Bridge
• If you plan on burning images to CD/DVD and then viewing them using Bridge.
To export the Cache select:
Tools > Cache > Build and Export Cache, or
Preferences > Cache > Automatically Export Cache To Folders when Possible.
Now cached previews will be readily available without having to take the time to re-render them.
