Adobe Announces Updates for Adobe Bridge CC

I’m happy to announce that Adobe Bridge CC has a number of new features and enhancements!

The completely rewritten Output module enables quick and easy creation of PDF files within Bridge CC.


Select the Output workspace and chose a template as a starting point. Then, drag and drop images from the filmstrip into the Output Preview area, and drag to reorder images as needed. Use the panels to customize the following:

  • Document —define page size, resolution and quality, image rotation and background fill, thumbnail placement, and filename.
  • Grid and Margins —customize the grid layout, margins, cell size, and spacing.
  • Header and Footer —add page numbers and custom text blocks at the top and bottom of the page.
  • Watermark —add a text or image watermark and place on each image or at the top of bottom of the page. Customize the watermark’s size, placement, and opacity.
  • PDF Properties —add password protection and choose playback options for multi-page documents (including full screen and automatic advancement with transitions).

When finished, chose Export to PDF and, if desired, save your custom settings as a new template. Note: There are additional preferences (Bridge > Preferences > Output) which include options for viewing the PDF after export, preserving embeded profiles, using Solo mode, and cell size vs cell spacing priorities for layout.

Adding projects to Adobe Portfolio

  • Publishing your work to Adobe Portfolio has never been easier. In the Publish panel, click the Adobe Portfolio icon and drag and drop files from the content panel into the empty well.

  • In the Create Portfolio Project dialog, give the project a name, set your cover photo, and choose whether or not to include the project on Behance. Note: If you select raw files, they will be converted to JPEG files before uploading to Adobe Portfolio.

  • Once the files are uploaded and the project has been created, a dialog appears. Click Go To Adobe Portfolio to push your project live using the Portfolio editor.

Stock Contributor Workflow

  • To quickly contribute image to Adobe Stock, click the Adobe Stock Contributor icon in the Publish panel. Connect your Contributor account, drag and drop files from the content panel into the empty well, and you’re ready to upload!

  • Once the files are uploaded click Go to Adobe Stock to add additional information about the image and submit.

The Filter panel

  • The following criteria have been added to the Filter panel:
    • Author Name
    • Color Profile
    • Bit Depth

Support for CEP Extensions

  • Bridge CC now supports Common Extensibility Platform (CEP) so that developers can create and run HTML5\CSS based Extensions.  Visit https://github.com/Adobe-CEP to find Bridge CEP related resources. For detailed instructions, refer to the document CEP Extensions Cookbook for Bridge.

File Info Panel

  • The File Info dialog has been updated to display the same information in the  File Info dialog in Photoshop, and vice-versa.

Place a Smart Object from Bridge to Photoshop

When working in Bridge, select your file and choose File > Place > In Photoshop. If you have no other documents open, the document will be placed into a new document as a Smart Object in Photoshop (with transformation handles so that you can resize if necessary – tap the Return or Enter key to apply any transformation).

If you already have a file open in Photoshop, selecting File > Place > in Photoshop will open your document into the currently active document  and resize it to fit within the image (with transformation handles so that you can resize if necessary – tap the Return or Enter key to apply any transformation).

Photoshop – Applying Adobe Camera Raw Presets in Bridge

If you’re using Adobe Camera Raw, I’m sure that you already know that one of the easiest ways to speed up your workflow is to create Presets.  But did you know that you don’t have to open the files into ACR in order to apply them? Simply select the files in Bridge, Control -click (Mac) / Right Mouse -click (Win), select Develop Settings, and choose your preset.
