Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Adobe Bridge is far more than File Browser on steroids: It’s the perfect central control center for managing all your Adobe project files, applications, and settings. In this book, Terry White walks every inch of the Bridge, simplifying the fundamentals, illuminating its advanced features, and showing exactly how it can accelerate your workflow.

White’s spent nearly a decade at Adobe, so he knows Creative Suite 2 literally from the inside out. He also knows users: He leads MacGroup-Detroit, Michigan's largest Macintosh Users Group, and speaks at events ranging from Photoshop World to Mac Design Conference. Here, he gets you started fast, helping you navigate and customize Bridge to your heart’s content. You’ll learn how to organize, sort, and filter files; display them as slideshows; apply ratings and labels; and set up quick-access Favorites. White shows how to instantly rename huge batches of files, page through PDFs, check out Illustrator swatches, even access Microsoft Office files.

Many users will never explore Adobe Bridge scripts, but you should -- they’re huge time-savers. White explains how they work, then introduces built-in scripts for everything from generating contact sheets to exporting Illustrator content into Flash. (Tip: You’ll find even more scripts at share.studio.adobe.com.)

You’ll find extensive coverage of Adobe Bridge's features for tracking projects, reviewing images in process, and using Adobe's stock photos service. You’ll even learn how to use Bridge as an RSS reader to capture Adobe's best new tips, tricks, and downloads. If you own Adobe Creative Suite 2, here’s your “bridge” to maximum productivity. Bill Camarda, from the November 2005 Read Only
