Review answers

1You can display Adobe Bridge in Full mode as a regular application, or toggle to Ultra-Compact or Compact mode. The compact modes display Bridge as a floating palette over other applications.
2You can use either Adobe Bridge or a desktop folder—such as the Explorer (Windows) or the Finder (Mac OS)—to rename files, move files into the Recycle Bin (Windows) or Trash (Mac OS), move files and folders from one location to another, rename files and folders, and create new folders.
3You can rearrange the palettes on the left side of the Adobe Bridge browser window by dragging their tabs, and you can resize panes by dragging their edges. You can enlarge and reduce thumbnail previews on the right side of the browser window by dragging the thumbnail slider, and you can choose between Thumbnail, Details, and Filmstrip views, depending on personal preference.
4Adobe Bridge shows high-resolution, scalable thumbnail previews of image files as well as metadata information about the selected item. You can apply a number of changes to files in Bridge without having to open them in Photoshop; for example, you can rotate them. You can also use Bridge to assign star rankings and colored labels to files, to sort files by various criteria, and to batch-rename files. Finally, you can perform automated functions in Adobe Bridge, such as creating Web photo galleries, and you can browse and purchase royalty-free digital stock photography.
