  1. Please improve UX of Textual Input in Search / (Smart) Collection Panels

    One standard user-error is that users search for terms but have the wrong filtering active. I type a file-name, but the active filter is "LABEL CONTAINS". Obviously, this Search retrieves no results (and Developers can't do anything about this).

    Now I get aware of my error and edit the Search filter. I still want to search for a file-name which is already input, so all I need to do is switch to the proper file attribute via Dropdown. I pick Document-Name and run the Search again.

    This new Search will again spit out no results (and this time Developers could…

  2. Filter Panel: Please let us filter Photoshop PSB files

    Right now, they are lumped together with PSD, as Photoshop documents. We have a workflow which sometimes leads PSB output (instead, as intended, to PSD). There's no way to filter these files out inside Bridge – we need to use Windows Explorer for this task.

  3. Make Workflows / Export-Panel work with PSD without Composite Layer

    We have to Export many thousand PSDs. As a Composite-Layer more than doubles the file volume (400 MB for single product image of a shoe ...) we have generally turned off Max Compatibility in PSD. This however causes the Bridge Exporter to fail – and Bridge doesn't even output a proper error message ("unsupported file format").

    Please allow PSD without Composite Layers in Exports from Bridge. I realize that Photoshop will have to open the files – but this still would be very helpful. Right now, we have to use Batch from Bridge to Export.

    Short-term improvement that takes one…

  4. Add H.265/HEVC support

    Bridge does not work with H.265/HEVC files. It neither plays the video in the preview pane, nor does it cache thumbnails for any H.265 files. I am running the latest version of Bridge (12.0.0.234) on Win10. Adobe support have confirmed that H.265/HEVC is not supported.

    When I enquired about this, Adobe's own automated support system provided a link about someone requesting this in 2017! H.265/HEVC is no longer an emerging format. It's where the industry is heading, and is seeing wide acceptace. iPhones have shot H.265/HEVC by default for years, and modern entry-level cameras are starting to adopt H.265 as…

  5. Synchronize Selective Masks across multiple images w/o Recomputing each image in ACR V.14

    The new select Sky and Subject tools are super time-savers! Unfortunately, when I try to synchronize my adjustments across multiple RAW images (for instance, time lapse sequence images of identical compositions), the masks need to be recomputed for each individual image.

    Julianne Kost's blog showcases this feature and need to recompute: https://jkost.com/blog/2021/10/adobe-camera-raw-v14-local-adjustment-tools-masking-premium-presets-and-more.html

    Programmers: please include an option to recompute multiple images at the same time. Adobe support states that that feature is not currently possible.

  6. Show Items From Subfolders Button

    It would be great if the Show Items From Subfolders option in the View menu could be added as a button on the main window or a permanently checked item somewhere so users don't have to go to the menu and enable it every time they move from one folder to another!

  7. Bridge UI Scaling

    Can the Bridge Preferences -> Interface -> User Interface Scaling please become a slider or at least add increments like 125%/150%/175%?

    On a 4k monitor the Bridge UI is either tiny or way too big!

  9. Improved support for audio files

    As it stands, Bridge is clearly optimized for photo and video files. But with very few changes, it could be an amazing piece of software for people who work with audio as well!
    Suggestions:
    1. Additional columns and metadata:
    - Duration (also useful for video)
    - Bit rate (also useful for video)
    - Bit depth
    2. Display audio waveform in preview

  10. Batch renamed not working .ACR files

    Hey Folks,

    My normal photography workflow consists of timesyncing in Bridge, and doing the bulk ofmy photographic toning/contrast etc in Adobe Camera. When I'm done I batch rename everything so it stays time synced. When I rename the .CR2 file the match .XMP file also gets renamed so they stay linked and my edits remain on the renamed file.

    Now with the new masking option in Bridge 2022, the program is creating an additional .ACR file in addition to the .XMP file but the issue is when I rename my file only the .XMP file gets renamed, not the .ACR…

  11. Show Focus Points

    Function: "Show focus points".
    In Bridge there is no function that you can display the preselected focus points.
    This information included the camera's EXIF ​​data.
    In Lightroom there is a plugin called "Show Focus Points"

  13. zipping/unzipping

    Hello, everyone!

    If Adobe Bridge will have in the future an option to ZIP/UNZIP files, basically it can replace successfully all Windows Explorers or Commanders.
    Also consider FTP connections for file transfer, or integration with Cloud Transfers, as Adobe Cloud, We Transfer, Dropbox.

    Chhers!

  14. Automatically update the "select object" mask in Camera Raw

    Hi,
    I photograph products on a white background. To whiten the background perfectly, in the new Bridge 12, new Camera Raw, I used the "select object" function. With the help of the mask, the product was perfectly separated from the background. Now I want to apply the same effect to the rest of my photos using the sync option. In other photos, the mask also appeared, but was not automatically calculated for the other photos. I have to manually click "update mask" for each photo. My question: Is it possible to add an automation feature so that the mask automatically…

  15. Don't change the Bundle Identifier every time upgrade

    I use AppleScript and Keyboard Maestro to control applications version-independently by specifying the Bundle ID.

    Usually, Bundle IDs are version-independent. For example, Photoshop is "com.adobe.photoshop" even if the version changes.
    However, only Bridge has version numbers "com.adobe.bridge11" and "com.adobe.bridge12".
    I don't remember well, but I think it started around "com.adobe.bridge6".

    This means that I have to rewrite the scripts and macros every time I upgrade Bridge.

    There is a place in the info.plist to describe the version, so you don't have to add the version to the Bundle ID.

    don't need to add the version to the Bundle ID, just…

  16. force mask computing NOW and BATCH (sync)

    New masks in camera raw are good but when I sync some kind of masks they're not applied and computed (or start computing) but only applied as "to be re-computed", so I have to check EVERY SINGLE FILE and press "UPDATE" at the "xxxx needs to be recomputed" prompt.
    Some "force recompute" in sync options or some kind of batch recompute when applying a pre-existent (simple or complex) masks is not only needed but makes definitely sense. Some masks (subject) need to adapt to the specific content. I can't re-check each and every image to press "update" key, uh?

  18. Audio preview

    When Bridge is previewing mono audio, it can only be heard on the left channel, which is very distressing. I hope this problem can be fixed.

  19. "Show Transparency" option should remove thumbnail background based on alpha channel data if it exists.

    When an image file has an alpha channel, the preview panel should show what the image looks like with background removed based on the alpha channel.

  20. Add ARM version for support Apple Silicon M1 Mac

    I know that it takes a lot of effort to recompile and release the entire "Bridge" to the ARM version,
    But I really hope that the Intel version of "Bridge" can at least open the ARM version of "Camera Raw"
