Launching Bridge
Bridge is a standalone application that launches separately
from Photoshop CS3. It shares many of the attributes of the File
Browser found in earlier versions of Photoshop, but it has more
features and is designed to act as a central hub not only for
Photoshop, but also for all of Adobes Creative Suite products.
NOTE Since Bridge is an independent
application, it can also be launched
at any time directly from your
desktop or Start menu (Figure 3-3).
