Adobe Bridge CS6

Adobe Bridge CS6 is a file management program published by Adobe Bridge CS6. It is a component of the Adobe Creative Suite 6. The program’s primary purpose is to connect different components of the Creative Suite together within a single interface. As such, it can be accessed from all the CS programs except for the Adobe Acrobat 8.

The CS6 version is now a fully 64-bit application. This feature provides users with extended abilities when working on large files. The Mini Bridge feature is still available but with added improvements. This Mini Bridge can be used to access all the creative assets stored in the Adobe Bridge application. This mini panel is integrated with selected Adobe products (i.e. Photoshop, InDesign, and Photoshop Extended). All changes made from these Adobe products are synchronized to Adobe Bridge. This mini panel can also be used to sort, filter, and add files straight to the document.

The CS6 version also features custom image sizing, which provides additional controls when making web galleries. Watermarks can also be added to PDF files using this application. The program also features drag-and-drop support allowing users to transfer files from Adobe Illustrator straight to InDesign documents. This version offers color management features as well. These features provide users with the ability to set color preferences from the Bridge panel. The set color preferences can be used to manage the color settings for Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Acrobat X Pro, and Photoshop Extended.
