Video 004 – Labels, Star Ratings and Review Mode – Sorting and selecting images can be a big job given the amount of images we shoot. Here we show how we can add coloured labels or stars and we look at review mode too. We also demo how we can sort images to just show labels and/or stars. Review mode is great to make those final selections for editing.View this video here in HD or you can Download it to your Computer

Video 005 – Collections and Smart Collections – Imagine gathering images from many different folders and locations and copying them elsewhere for another project. Collections and smart collections makes this task quick and easy. It’s an option I use constantly. Smart collections can separate images into the collection automatically, driven by a keyword. Let’s show you how it works.  Review mode is great to make those final selections for editing. View this video here in HD or you can Download it to your Computer

Video 006 – Importing Images onto our Computer – We need to make this a standard practice with a degree of discipline. The Bridge Photo Down-loader will help. We can even back up images at the same time as we import them and apply some copyright information too.View this video here in HD or you can Download it to your Computer

Video 008 – Metadata – Keywords – Filters & Searches –  Here we create our own metadata template and show how keywords are applied to images as we import them. Sometimes we may want to sort images into those that were shot with a particular lens, aperture, shutter speed or ISO. This is a powerful section of Bridge. Download it to your Computer
