At the point when I initially bought Adobe Creative Suite 4, Web Premium, included was Adobe Bridge CS4. As per Adobe, the item Bridge is “incredible, simple to-utilize media administrator for visual individuals, letting you effectively sort out, peruse, find and view innovative resources.” (source: Adobe site) So I began to utilize Bridge to compose my (at that point) several photographs.
At that point I examined in a large number of photographs in my film library from a time of shooting moves of 35mm film. I began slowing down in Bridge, I was unable to monitor where everything was. I was losing the work process fight. At that point I caught wind of Photoshop Lightroom 2. By and by, as indicated by Adobe “…Lightroom 2 is fundamental for the computerized photography work process required at this point. Presently [a photographer] can rapidly import, process, oversee, and feature your pictures – from one shot to a whole shoot.” Lightroom nonetheless, was an additional cost remain solitary program that cost around $250 list.
All things considered, I read the promotions and the audits and immediately chose to get on board with the Lightroom temporary fad. The inquiry is, do you need Lightroom? In my psyche Lightroom 2 is intended to be an incorporated, however remain solitary application for the genuine picture taker. With Lightroom you can compose your pictures with indexes and assortments in a significantly more effective way for huge volumes of pictures.
On the off chance that you are shooting in RAW configuration both Bridge and Lightroom have a similar RAW controls. A little realize actuality is that the “Create” module in Lightroom is indistinguishable from the RAW designing controls in Bridge. Lightroom’s “Create” module takes other photograph control a lot farther than Bridge. While not as incredible as Photoshop, I locate that a large portion of my photograph altering is presently done in Lightroom and I use Photoshop just for the extremely truly difficult work. Sometimes you could utilize Lightroom rather than Photoshop or you could even get by with photo edit Elements or no other photograph altering programming.
With Adobe Bridge you can compose your photographs, you can tag (keyword)the photographs and recordings. What’s more, Bridge can peruse and compose RAW documents. With Lightroom 2 you can arrange your photographs, catchphrase them, and you can import from an assortment of configurations and compose retreat in numerous organizations. Lightroom is frail in the region of recordings. It is all the more remarkable in its capacity to “create” or to change and alter a photo. It alters in a non-dangerous way that holds the first configuration. Lightroom is intended to supplement the work-stream of a genuine picture taker that may have hundreds or thousands of pictures to process or alter, regardless of whether it is for a straightforward yield and configuration to a print size.
In this way, most importantly I would suggest Bridge for an individual that has a portion of the Adobe set-up of items and requirements a lower level of photograph association. I would suggest Lightroom 2 for the deliberate picture taker, those that shoot hundreds or even a huge number of shots and necessities to sort out, alter, print and feature their items.
