QuickStart! - Adobe Bridge CS5 Tutorial

Adobe Bridge CS5 is the link between Adobe Creative Suite programs. It allows the user to adapt the default workspaces before importing video, sound, or image files. Throughout this VTC QuickStart! guide to the program, you will be shown how to access your various files from within the Bridge interface before progressing to options such as rating and labeling for quick searching. The course then illustrates how to use metadata to help accelerate the search and catalogue process. Important elements of Bridge CS5 such as keywording, stacking images, and using collections are also covered. You will also learn how to output your files as a PDF document or as a web gallery. The course concludes with a look at differences between Bridge CS5 and Lightroom 3 whilst also considering the use of Mini Bridge in other Adobe programs such as InDesign CS5 and Photoshop CS5.
