Lightroom and Bridge

Among those of you who are waist deep (or higher) into PhotoShop and Lightroom, WHAT are the separate uses of Lightroom and Bridge? They seem to do the same thing! I don't know why Adobe needed Bridge, when Lightroom offers so many primping/adjusting possibilities. Can somebody explain the differences?

Re: Lightroom and Bridge

Bridge is aimed at users of multiple CC apps. It handles movies, audio, Illustrator, Indesign, and other files as well as images.

Lightroom is designed from the ground up for photographers.

In the Bridge there is Camera Raw which is the exact same raw image processor as in Lightroom. The difference isn't in the processing....the developing part is the same but the tools are laid out differently and Lightroom is also a cataloging software where as Bridge is not. Bridge actually was around before Lightroom to answer that part of your question.

Re: Lightroom and Bridge

Bridge doesn't equal LR, LR has unique features not even found in ACR. Virtual Copies, Proof copies, unlimited history etc.

As one who only needs to deal with image files, I have zero need for Bridge. But Bridge is useful for those working with documents that LR doesn't support even though, Bridge isn't a database or DAM (it's a browser). Work with lots of InDesign or PDF files? Bridge might be useful to you.
