  1. Bridge slow, not reacting, bad performance since update

    Bridge 11.0.0.83 is slow, takes a long time to show thumbnails that are already in cache. Trying to open and view another folder makes bridge slow to the point that it's not responding.
    Not only the 100% previews, also embedded preview size.
    Before it was much better. A love Vridge but it needs to work better again.
    Win 10 64 bit.

  7. photodownloader -download error

    PhotoDownloader continually stops saving images - has happened multiple times, while attempting via different USB ports, and using SD card slot, also while using SD card reader -
    Mac is BRAND NEW so incredibly doubtful this is a physical problem

  8. Adobe Bridge is very slow after updating.

    Adobe Bridge 11.0.0.83 is very slow, and it is taking my computed down. It's using 23GB of memory just to show What's New.

  9. camera raw S L O W (version 11 on) end 2020-2021

    Camera raw is S L O W since new version of bridge and related technology (cc2021). When I say this is because everything wasn't, before, with the SAME operations and actions.

  10. network share

    If you have a network location saved as a favorite, and that computer is OFF, the performance of Bridge is so poor it's unusable. Once the computer with the saved network location comes back on line, performance returns to normal.

  12. Poor display scaling on QHD Displays

    I run several QHD (2560 x 1440 px) monitors, two 25 inch and one Cintiq 27 pen display. There's no way to display Bridge well with the options given in Preferences. The largest scale in 100% is way too small, automatic seems not to do anything and at 200 and largest font everyhing is gigantic.

    Usability is seriously hampered, as tools like batch renaming are extremely small. Generally, the GUI displays a questionable hierarchy of font sizes. Address bar font larger than Main menu, Search field text very small, Thumbnail Tooltipps on Hover even ridiculously small (maybe 6 px). This…

  14. Apple M1 Bad Performance updating file names and Metadata on SMB share

    Bridge 2021 11.0.0.83
    Hi, first of all, in general I love Bridge, providing all I need for Photo Management!
    I observed the following performance issues when updating my photos stored on a NAS (SMB access).
    Batch or Mass updates of Filenames or Metadata (Keywords) is extremely slow (even for SMB access).
    I am using Bridge on my Apple Silicon M1 MacBook Pro.
    When Batch renaming 150 files it took >15min before I 'killed' Bridge manually. It was using 1 core at 100% and took ages to complete the update. It might be related to updating the Cache DB, because the…

  15. Audio preview stopped working properly in Bridge 2021

    Used previous versions of Bridge without ever experiencing this particular problem, but with the new installation of the 2021 version this has become a problem.

    I use Bridge to audition audio file for projects, as I have a decent SFX library. I click an audio file, it plays, I move on. Nice and simple workflow.

    However, in 2021, when I click a file, Bridge will play 2-5 seconds of it, then stop. If I move off the file and back again, it will usually play the whole file as long as it is less than 30 seconds long. Some times…

  17. slow bridge

    Hi I had a problem for months with bridge taking hours to move itself. But yesterday I found something I could do about it. It worked straight away. Here goes. Read first.
    Go to Apple on top left > shut down. Turn Mac on. Immediately press option > command > P and R keys all together at the same time, before screen appears, keep pressing until Mac restarts. Release keys.

  19. Additional Window won't open

    Just updated to 10.1.1.166, the command + N doesn't bring up a new window. When I go to file and try, it does not work. Files on a shared server do not show the changes made from another computer in the new updated Bridge.

  20. Horrible thumbnail/preview performance, constant 100% CPU usage and freeze-ups

    So for the last several months, Bridge CC has had terrible performance, with preview/thumbnail generation taking much longer than it ever did in the past, using 100% of CPU resources while doing so, constantly locking up and even locking up overall system function, even with Bridge.exe set to low priority.

    This happens on both systems I use (an i7-4790/24GB/GTX 980 desktop, and a i7-4712/16GB/Quadro K1100M laptop). Both are using SSD for storage.

    I have:

    Cleared bridge cache.

    Added dedicated bridge cache SSD to desktop system (no other use)

    Updated all CC software to newest versions as available

    Done clean installations…
