Adobe Bridge is a digital asset management tool that integrates with other Adobe programs, such as Photoshop, Illustrator, and After Effects. The application allows you to organize your multimedia files, create workflows to automate tasks (like batch image conversion), and publish creative assets.

Bridge allows you to organize your assets by applying keywords, labels, and ratings to them. You can also edit your assets' metadata and preview assets via thumbnails. Bridge also enables you to group assets into collections and quickly search them through powerful filters.

The application provides a workflow builder workspace to create, manage, and execute output workflows. For example, you can batch convert a collection of camera raw files to JPEG format, then rename and resize them. You can also save complex workflow presets for repeat use. Then, when you finish modifying your files, you can directly export them to Adobe Stock or your website from Bridge.

Summary

Bridge comes with various organizational, workflow automation, and publishing tools. If you are an Adobe user who needs to organize multiple multimedia files, Bridge is an excellent tool. However, if you do not have an excessive number of multimedia assets, your computer's default file management tools are most likely adequate.
