How To Use The Filmstrip View In Adobe Bridge

Project Information-- Skill level-Basic AdobeR BridgeR

The AdobeR BridgeR has several ways to browse through the images in your folders. The default is the familiar Thumbnail view but the method I use most often is the Filmstrip view which displays a list of thumbnails across the bottom of the Bridge window and an extra large thumbnail of the selected image in the content area. Follow the steps below to display the images in your folder with the Filmstrip view.

Step 1. Click on the Folders tab in the upper left of the Bridge window. Navigate to the folder with the images you wish to view.

Step 2. Click View > As Filmstrip to display the images in the Filmstrip view. You can also click on the Filmstrip View Icon at the bottom right corner of the Bridge window.

Step 3. You can change the size of the thumbnails by using the Thumbnail Slider at the bottom right corner of the Bridge window.

Step 4. To view any of the images in the folder at the extra large thumbnail size, click on its thumbnail in the Filmstrip.

Step 5. After you have clicked on a thumbnail of an image, you can view the information for that image in the Metadata Panel on the left of the Bridge window.
