  1. Allow users to have 8 labels which can be given unique names by users. This is already the case with competitors such as Photo Mechanic

    Allow users to have 8 labels which can be given unique names by users. This is already the case with competitors such as Photo Mechanic and other software vendors. I am reluctant to move away from Photo Mechanic to Adobe Bridge because I find it so useful. This is already a popular idea on the forum as can be seen from many posts

  2. ADOBE BRIDGE : SHOW FULL FILENAME IN PREVIEW WINDOW UNDER GRAPHIC

    Finder is AWEFUL compared to ADOBE BRIDGE for reviewing images.
    In Adobe Bridge, there's PLENTY of space under the graphic in PREVIEW window to show the full file image. NEED THIS... BADLY.

  3. Bridge 2019 is painfully slow

    Even after file previews are generated and cached Bridge is now painfully slow. Scrolling is slow, interacting with files is slow, browsing folders is slow. Sometimes the program will lock up for up to a minute. It's bad on both my respectable spec'ed AMD Ryzen work PC (quadcore-16gb ram), and it's slow on my monster spec home PC (intel 9900k-16gb ram).

  4. Allow users to set the location of the Media Cache.

    The default location of the Media Cache is on my C:\ drive. I do not like the C:\ drive to be used for temporary files. The constant creation and deletion of temporary files on the C:\ drive greatly increases the chances for corruption of that drive. Instead, I partition a separate drive to use for temporary things like caches and my Temp folder.

    Alternatively, some people might want to put the cache on a fast SSD drive while leaving their C:\ drive as a standard spinning disk.

  6. "Photo downloader"

    Bridge's Photo Downloader used to maintain the user's settings after each use. (Such as file folder destination and subfolder setting.) But now it always reverts to the default setting making me change it each time before downloading photos. Please fix it to keep the user settings until changed by the user.

  7. Path completion

    Would be great to have path completion in the address bar in Bridge - either the tab completion in MacOS (eg. the 'Go' bar and terminal bash), or the mixed cursor-tab equivalent in Windows (explorer's address bar and cmd).

    It's always slightly disconcerting when you're used to relying on it not to have it there.

  8. A workable file/image sharing infrastructure for local networks (small teams)

    Problem:
    Small teams working in local networks share tons of files with each others.
    Its always a pain to use Bridge to find the files, tags, previews, comments, ratings and everything else that makes Bridge such a good thing.

    The usual trick is to have local cache (in each folder), but then everyone on the team has to re-search the shared folders manually and frequently, to discover updated files, tags, ratings, etc.
    Sometimes its slow, other times the files are locked, other times the sharer clears its cache.

    It can become painful when the volume of assets at play goes…

  9. .abr

    I've heard a few time that a preview of .abr brushes, for photoshop, at the desktop level would be useful to users.

    On windows (only), there's abr viewer https://abrviewer.fr.uptodown.com/windows

    inside photoshop, there's brusherator by sergey kritskyi https://gumroad.com/kritskiy#iLmZz

    I suppose a simple preview, not just the icon, would help users, and having this in Bridge would be logical :)

  10. camera raw zoom lock

    In older version of camera raw when going to next/previous photo the zoom was always set to "fit to screen". Now it stays zoomed in or out across multiple photos, which is annoying (expecially when the crop tool zooms out from itself) and for me personally the old way was better. Probalbly opinion from user to user, therefore option to choose the behavior in this case would be the best.

  11. Add (a couple) more places to add a folder to Favorites.

    To add a folder to favorites, I know 3 ways (maybe there are more) :

    While navigating, right clicking on a folder has an « add to favorites » option.
    And you can find that option from within the folder in the file menu.
    You can also right click on an empty space while exploring a folder.

    I miss a couple of important places, where I naively looked for that :


    • The breadcrumbs : I tried to right click, not only on the long line of files, but in the empty space.

    • I also wanted to drag and drop one…

  12. share Bridge collections to Cloud

    We work in an office with several networked drives that have many, many graphics files. Several of us work off of these drives; creating Bridge collections helps keep things organized for projects. It would be GREAT if these collections could be shared to others on the network, so they have the same resources. Having live updates of those shared collections so we all could work from the collection(s) and update them on the fly, updating everyone else's copy of the shared collection in the process.

  14. Arbitrary Exif Tag To Filter (e.g. SceneCaptureType)

    The filter panel allows to show files that match some attributes. Some exif tags like exposure time are already included, others can only be shown in the Metadata Panel. I would wish to be be able to filter by the tag 'SceneCaptureType' or even every possible tag.

  15. Save/Update workspace

    The ability to modify and save the current workspace would be very useful. At the moment the current workspace can be modified but not saved under the same workspace name, it has to be saved under a new name and then the old name deleted.

    E.g. I have a "Photography" workspace. If I want to change it I cannot resave it as "Photography", I save it as "Photography1" and then delete "Photography". Then, I cannot rename "Photography1" as "Photography".

    Once the old "Photography" has been deleted I can then load "Phorography1", save it as "Photography" and then delete "Photography1".

    Eventually,…

  16. make it work

    Currently waiting 30 seconds at least for a star rating to appear. Overall performance is at barely usable speed. I'm watching lag I've not seen since the 90s. This is supposed to be a quick, basic image browser, yet it's now so slow I can barely bring myself to boot it up.

  17. Bring Split View to Mac OS

    In Adobe Bridge 2019 and PS CC for Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6 I am unable to do split view as in previous OS versions. Is this something that Adobe got rid of on the latest version or is something related to the current Mac OS that I am running? It would be great to have that feature back!

    Split view is great when working with Bridge in different folders... specially when moving around files... same applies to PS CC... it's great to have two windows open in full size.. it makes a difference!

    Please bring back Split View for Mac…

  20. histogram

    Could we see HISTOGRAM in Adobe Bridge? It's very important for photographers. (I know Adobe is more suited for Designers and they don't need it...)
