  • Lightroom: 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?

    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.

        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.

          I recently downloaded the Lightroom trial, and I have to admit, i am impressed. I figurd out a work flow that worked for me in a matter of a couple of hours.

          by crazyfly1
          This is actually 2 questions. First, ya know how in Photoshop you can revert an image back to it's initial stage? Well I have 40000 images in a lightroom cat (I know, I know) and there are a lot of edits. I want to take all of the images back to the beginning. The reset function will take the pictures...
