I’m a huge fan of Adobe Bridge. It simplified the way I work with my pictures. I did not yet update to Creative Suite 3 because of the price tag, which is why i was stuck with Bridge 1.
Bridge 2 (shipping with the CS3) has loads of improvements, which i wanted to use. Three Features were most important to me: 100% Magnification1, Comparing multiple images2 and Raw Support for my Canon 40D3. The Bridge 2 will prevent starting 3 to 4 programs.
Why do i know about these features? Adobe has a 30-day-trial for Photoshop CS3, which ships with the bridge. The best thing about is: Though Photoshop will stop working after 30 days, Bridge will still do it’s job.
Basically that means: A Working Bridge 2. I can only recommend this to anyone working with tagged images or raw-files.
