Your Guide to Adobe Bridge: Workspace. In the last post of this series we talked about the basics of Adobe Bridge.
What it is, what it can do, why it’s a good thing, and some of the computer requirements. I’m sure some of you are quite anxious to start digging in to the finer details of the software, but before we go anywhere I want to talk about the Bridge Workspace. A workspace refers to the layout of features and controls available in a piece of software.
Adobe Bridge has several predefined workspaces, each having a unique purpose in the photo management process. Different workspaces mean different views, panels, and controls. Adobe Bridge has six predefined workspaces. And here are a couple of my own custom workspaces. After looking at a few of these workspaces, you ought to notice that they consist of the same parts (aka “panels”) but rearranged. For the purpose of this section, I’m using a screenshot of a workspace that has all seven panels visible. So that’s pretty much it for the panels. How to Make A Inexpensive Light Tent.
