Old interface in Bridge 8 was much better than new!
I think not need to change things that was good.
New interface is too "designed": previously it was more compact, without extra featuгes as big grey stars, wide grey frames around images and many other.
New features must adjusted in Preferences in more detailed style.
Dear Bridge Users,
We have provided more options to customize the UI.
This feature is now available to try as a Beta (Prerelease)
Please go to https://adobeprerelease.com and Select Adobe Bridge and sign up for our prerelease program to have an early look at this feature and provide feedback. You will need to download Bridge v10.0 Drop 2. Please also take a look at the documentation for this drop.
Summary of changes:
At the bottom of the Content Panel, we have provide 2 checkboxes:
1. Tiles (to show/hide tiles)
2. Thumbnails only (to show/hide ratings and file names)
If the tiles are removed, you can change the color of the interface around the thumbnails from pure white to pure black. Edit Menu → Preferences → Interface → Image Backdrop
Click on a Color Theme to reset to defaults.
Looking forward to your feedback.
