Chapter 2. Bridge

After you're done photographing, you need an easy way to get your images from the memory cards onto your computer and to see how the pictures look. Although you may be eager to start optimizing them right away, first you need to sort through them and decide which files to keep and which to delete. Adobe Bridge, a stand-alone application that comes with Photoshop and Elements, and Organizer in the PC version of Elements, have a lot of features to help with this task. We'll show you how to take advantage of these features to make this part of your workflow as efficient as possible.
