Please join us as President Rick Burress presents:
Adobe Bridge: “Using Smart Collections in Adobe Bridge to improve your Workflow.”
Bridge is often referred to as a digital asset manager, or a media manager, because it grants powerful tool to find, manage and organize our out-of-control collection of photos and images. In fact, Bridge isn't limited to just photos, or just Photoshop. It's actually a companion program for every Adobe app in the Creative Cloud (or the Creative Suite), and it's used to manage—not just images—but also Adobe Illustrator files, InDesign files, videos, and any other file type we use with Adobe's software. Bridge is the “Bride” of Photoshop, and the Matriarch of all the Creative Cloud apps. Come learn to use Adobe Bridge effectively. We’ll focus this meeting on one very major feature: Smart Collections.
Rick will blow our minds away while showing members how to use Bridge to:
• Create search criteria once and use it over and over again with Smart Collections;
• Search your hard drive (or selected folders) for very specific, hard-to-find data and metadata;
• Let Bridge organize for you!
• Quickly locate groups of documents, images, files, which meet certain criteria without having to open folders or files manually, on your own.
• Save search criteria for future use.
• Generate portfolios, contact sheets, pdfs from “found” items.
