Would like Adobe to study C1 Pro - Its image viewer is much faster, faster thumbs build, Bring back Web Gallery, and a few more items.
First off, thank you Adobe for not giving up on Bridge - Bridge is the only viable program for Adobe cross program users (PS, ID, AI, AA, are the main programs I use and I need to see thumbnails for all work cross programs) - so thank you for keeping Bridge fresh and thank you for allowing these requests from your users, especially long-time professional users working with LARGE (18GB+) PSB files. PERFORMANCE is crucial as camera files get bigger and larger mp sensors (100mp+)
Here are some suggestions I would like to see implemented into bridge:
1). Making duplicate or Instances from ACR would be great - I often make duplicates of a raw file in bridge and then make different adjustments for each (such as, color or b&w, or more complex changes in ACR, while still keeping each duplicate's full raw editing in tact as opposed to making a Tiff instance...)
2). ALSO CRUCIAL - Been asking for every single Bridge update since this feature was abandoned: PLEASE PLEASE - PUT BACK THE WEB GALLERY under the output tab - it is a much preferred method for review than a PDF proof sheet. PLEASE RETURN the WEB GALLERY (it is in lightroom - Adobe, you have the means - I only keep lightroom loaded so I can use its web gallery - how cumbersome) - PLEASE BRING BACK what once was a great and used feature in BRIDGE.
3). How about more color options for labeling files - inc. ability to custom make colors for different considerations - and being able to make multiple color labels applicable (Like apple does in its file labeling in finder (I have complex coding system for my work for product outputs - this would be nice - but not as crucial as the WEB GALLERY) - and I would like use red to mean delete or reject if I had more colors available - 5 pre-named colors is limited to how many creative people work within their own custom workflows.
4). Going back to C1-Pro - its output module contains multiple conversions, including adding more output options - and it is very fast in processing multiple outputs per large groups of selected raw files - all customizable (a bit like the old Dr. Brown plugin where a singe raw image could be out put into multiple formats, color spaces, bits, ppi, dimensions --- etc.) what a time saver that would be given all the different SM platforms, and website criteria - to program in the outputs for the different destinations and use of the one single image for immediate deployment to respective platforms. (as a side note: I think DR Brown plugin offered three different simultaneous outputs - but I don't remember given that plugin isn't available anymore for the most recent Bridge updates - on another note - C1-Pro allows adding custom outputs beyond 3... I have not seen a limit yet when I use C1-Pro to how many outputs it will create for a file or group of files - all can be selected or deselected - a very handy feature).
Thank you for implementing these for the next release (I am being positive here).
