  1. I would like Adobe to Add the Ability to FLIP the Thumbnail (Image) in Bridge (X Axis).

    With the ability to flip on the X Axis, one can view their image in Any Orientation. I have been using Photoshop since version 2.2. I teach Digital Photography and Photoshop at a community college in Maryland. When I am going through my images in the Bridge, I NEED the ability to Flip an image, so I Don't have to open it in Photoshop or Lightroom because I use the slideshow to view the Final Images. I always tell my student that "when Adobe upgrades their programs, it's Always an Amazing Upgrade". For instance, when the stamp tool showed what…

  2. Fix the lock-up when switching to Bridge from other apps

    For as long as I have been using Bridge -- at least 10 years -- I have had the annoying problem where Bridge locks up temporarily when I switch to it by clicking on the Bridge Window while using another app. Bridge comes to the front, but you can't do anything. Bridge returns to normal if I switch to any other app, then back to Bridge.

    This behavior has occurred in every version of Bridge back to at least CS5, across every Mac OS going back a decade or more, on at least 7 different iMacs, Mac Pros, Macbooks and…

  3. Preview generation at lower priority

    When generating previews in folder with more photos, it takes almost 100% of CPU and other work is very slow. Would it be possible to assign to processes of "normal work" higher and to preview generation lower CPU priority?

  4. 「Camera Raw で開く」が以前より遅くなっている

    「Camera Raw で開く」を選択してから、Camera Raw が起動するまでの待ち時間が長くなっています。
    数値は出せませんが、使い始めた2016年頃は1秒もあれば表示されていたと思いますが、現在は約3秒かかります。
    RAWであろうがJPEGであろうが、画面が表示されるまでの時間は遅くなっています。

  5. Bridge won't show updated previews of edited raw files

    I have multiple computers (classroom) that I am running Bridge and Photoshop Camera Raw. My teacher computer was updated at the same time. Initially things were working as expected and a day later the previews wouldn't render as edited after editing in Camera Raw. This was the case with all of the computers, even with photos that were just downloaded. My teacher computer is functioning properly, however, and shows the edit. I've compared preference settings, but they appear the same. I have 'Always High Quality' checked on all the computers. When I tested a computer I know I did a…

  6. Make this flickering and weird flashing of images during fullscreen previews stop GOD DAMNIT.

    The flickering during fullscreen preview mode is unbearable! As soon as I start to rate or reject a single image, sometimes after looking through a few images, the screen starts flickering. As far as I'm concerned Adobe is well aware of this issue but doesn't fix it. Affected are Apple desktop machines and MacBooks not only the latest generation.

  7. macOS Metal

    It would be great if Adobe Bridge used the macOS Metal API to improve graphic performance.

  8. 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.

  9. 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).

  10. Use same RAW processing engine as Photo Mechanic?

    Why is Bridge so sluggish when previewing RAW and JPG files? Launch the exact folder in Photo Mechanic and I can instantly start seeing images. I use Bridge for organizing, keywords, etc. b/c it works seamlessly with other Adobe apps, but it's super frustrating how slow it is to load.

    Note: I have 'Browse Quickly' icon selected and 'Prefer Embedded' and have a large cache settings. PM out of the box is 100x faster still.

  11. Permit separate operations, in Multiple windows simultaneously

    I would love to be able to do separate operations, in Multiple windows, simultaneously
    !
    Br could then be building its thumbnails from a particular Folder in one window; while I could carry on processing images from a separate Folder in ACR while those thumbnails are being built.

  12. Please KEEP Debayers

    I open an image full-screen and zoom in to 100% mode. I wait literally 2 minutes [we'll chalk that part up to my computer being quite old] for it to de-pixelate even though I have "Generate Full Screen Previews" turned on and I've waited for Bridge to stop saying "Generating Previews."

    I go to the next image and wait through the process again. Then I decide I want to compare the two, so I go back to the first image ... and have to start the whole process over.

    Why, you know, IN THE WORLD? Why weren't the full…

  13. GIF playback

    Gif playback has never worked smooth in previews in adobe bridge.
    I've been using it for 9 years now and hope this will be finally integrated smoothly in the near future. Thank you.
