  3. Thumbnails compatible with AVA CAD/CAM files

    We use a program in our studio called AVA CAD/CAM for wallcovering designs. We also use Adobe Bridge to browse our cloud storage which gives us great response times for populating thumbnail previews. The only files we have trouble with are .ava3/.ava4 files as it shows no previews for at all. I have been in touch with AVA support thinking it may have been something wrong on their end but, as far as they are aware, it is compatibility issues with Bridge. AVA support did say they use "Apple Quicklook technology to preview the files in search applications (like the…

  4. In Thumbnail placement for a contact sheet: Add a "Leave where placed"

    Bridge offers "Across First" and a "Down First", but I'd like to see an option to simply let the user place them where desired. Similarly, if one is removed, please don't slide the remaining thumbnails to adjust for its removal.

    It would be excellent if Bridge would "render" a preview of Substance materials (sbsar)

  6. Quick editing of selection

    Adobe should add quick picture editing tools for brightness-contrast and etc. while you’re looking through few previews. Just to make it easier to do a tonal correction of selection which should be tonally same

  7. Support of the heic image format in Bridge

    It would be nice if finally the "heic" format would be supported. Apple use the heic format and Canon with the EOS 1 Dx Mark III to.

  8. remove transparency on thumbnails

    IT would be great to disable transparency entirely on thumbnails instead of showing the transparency grid as the only option. An EPS with black icons on no background looks terrible in the thumbnails unless you have Bridge set to its brightest interface settings. Showing an EPS with a white background would be a great option.

  10. double click on picture let open fullscreen picture instead of open Lightroom as option

    If I double click on a picture in thumbnail mode Photoshop is openend with the picture.
    It would be nice if I could change this behavior in the settings to do other things. One option I like would be to view the image in full-screen like it you push the space-button on keyboard.
    How often I didn´t think about the fact that Bridge do something other than most other programs on this genre (like ACDSee) do and bam Photoshop is loading.. ;-)

  11. Keep folders on top (in content listing) - MacOS

    This is the default behavior on Windows, but on Mac, it's not. However, in Finder preferences, there's the option where you can choose to keep folders on top, but it doesn't affect the sorting in Bridge. Bridge should adjust the sorting according to the Finder's behavior or there should be a way to set this manually. It's doesn't make much sense to have one sorting style in Finder and a different one in Bridge.

    Maybe lifelong Mac users don't see the point, but I switched from PC some time ago, and I find sorting with keeping folders on top much…

  13. Preview with camera setting

    Can I please get a switch so that I can preview the RAW files in the camera settings and not the Bridge defaults? I would like to see my black and white files in black and white i preview. Veliva should come up as velvia. I know the RAW files have a camera setting information and I have seen other RAW converters do it so I know it is possible.

  14. Disable Thumbnail and Preview Generation, and Caching

    Thumbnails and previews are agonizingly slow to generate. Regardless of what settings I change, they take way too long to load, and often times don't load at all. Cache size, cache file size limit, preview quality, etc, none of them are effective, especially for videos since some cache settings don't apply to them. I would like the ability to apply keywords to files quickly. In my case, and I'm sure often enough for others, the thumbnails and previews are excess information. Generating them takes too long to make the workflow possible at all. Please consider. Thank you.

    Dear Bridge Users,

    Have you tried setting the following Preferences?
    Edit Menu→Preferences→Thumbnails→Do Not Process files larger than 1000 MB. Change this to 1 MB.

    Also, on the right hand side of the folder navigation bar on top, drop down next to the triangle (Option for thumbnail quality and previews) and select “Prefer Embedded (faster)”. Screenshot attached.

    Let us know if this helps by commenting on User Voice.

  15. MXF format support

    Add support for the MXF file format. How on earth this is not already a 'feature' is beyond belief!

  16. Custom Folder Icons

    One of the only things I like about Macs is the relative ease of customizing the icons for folders. But the problem is that if there are Macs and PCs on the same network, the same icons aren't visible on both.
    I would love if Bridge would allow you to
    a) Change those icons from within Bridge itself. (Shouldn't need to go to Finder, then File Info, etc.).
    b) Allow Bridge on a PC to see those same Folder Icons. The hidden "Icon?" file is in each folder. Use it. Show it. Make Bridge be more than a bridge for…

  17. I don't like the new Content window.

    There's too much wasted space between the thumbnails. Also, the dark boxes around the thumbnails are really unnecessary and distracting. I prefer the view of CC 2018. Please make this new look optional, and/or allow users to turn these boxes off in preferences.

  18. Cannot see progress of thumbnails

    Right now I cannot see the progress for thumbnail generation, in a folder of 2300 photos, it is but a guessing game when it will be done and performance will return to the app.
