Adobe Bridge can help organize files by renaming a group of them at once, assigning colored labels or star ratings, edit embedded or associated XMP and IPTC Information Interchange Model metadata and sort or categorize them based on their metadata. It can work with different versions of a file that is part of an Adobe Version Cue project. However, it lacks the photo editing functions of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. Image files can be shown in different sized thumbnails, slide shows or lists. Each folder, which can be bookmarked, has a cache file for speeding up rendering time of images when viewing a thumbnail. The cache can be in one central location or in individual folders.
Adobe Bridge can be invoked from within all components of Creative Suite except Adobe Acrobat.
