Adobe’s free media manager for your creative works

Adobe Bridge CC is a free multimedia software that acts as an organization tool for Adobe Creative Suite and Creative Cloud. Called a digital asset management app, Adobe Bridge CC allows you to easily keep tabs on your creative works and projects. With this program, you can even edit various aspects and metadata by batches and overall keep your stuff organized to avoid any hassle later.

The Adobe family

Adobe Inc. is an American multinational computer software company that has long been focused on delivering top-notch software for multimedia creation. Adobe is best known for various products, such as the Adobe Flash web software program, the Adobe Photoshop image editing software, the Adobe Illustrator vector graphics editor, the Adobe Acrobat Reader for PDFs, and Adobe Creative Suite—as well as its successor Adobe Creative Cloud—which is a collection and whole package of its different creativity apps. Since it has tons of programs for creating digital works, Adobe had fortunately developed a support program for its office suite program that can help you stay organized and focused on working productively. 

Strong support

Adobe Bridge CC is meant to be your overall media manager for your Adobe products. Working with the Creative Cloud suite, you can use Adobe Bridge CC to preview, organize, edit, and publish your multiple creative assets quickly and easily. You don’t have to open all individual applications for each media file in order to manipulate them further. Adobe Bridge CC is your shortcut to them so you can avoid wasting time in just booting the programs up. Using this app, there are various functions available to you. You’re able to add watermarks, keywords, labels, and ratings; the metadata can easily be edited; import and export files by bulk; and even convert to some file formats. Whether it’s for photography or your own original artwork, Adobe Bridge CC’s preview function also lets you easily see all your media files.

A helping hand

There’s no doubt that if you’re working with Adobe’s creative suite programs, Adobe Bridge CC is a recommended program to supplement them with. It’s been optimized to work alongside them and easily allow you to edit elements without having to manually open your programs. Not only that but this program even has a quick upload function to Adobe Stock for you to start earning royalties for your work. Like all Adobe programs, however, you should be prepared for it to be heavy on computer resources and be a bit tricky to work with at first. Fortunately, though, it’s just an optional program for the Adobe Creative Cloud now so you can easily turn it down if you like.
