Chapter 1. Tool and Palette Primer > Working with Thumbnails

Working with Thumbnails

Once you've navigated to the desired folder on your hard drive, you'll be presented with thumbnail images of the contents of that folder on the right side of the browser window. Click any thumbnail to select a single image, then either Command-click (Mac) or Ctrl-click (Windows) to select additional thumbnails, or Shift-click to select a range of thumbnails. When you have one or more thumbnails selected, you can do the following:

  • Open the images in Photoshop by double-clicking on one of the selected thumbnail images, or type Command-O (Mac), or Ctrl-O (Windows).

    The largest thumbnail you can view is 512 pixels on any side, even though behind the scenes, Bridge is creating thumbnail images that are 1,024×768 pixels for each image.


  • Delete the selected images by pressing Delete (Mac), or Backspace (Windows).

  • Rotate the thumbnails by clicking on one of the curved arrow icons that appear at the top of the Bridge window (the image will only be rotated after it has been opened in Photoshop).

  • Move an image to a different location on your hard drive by dragging it to one of the folders in the Folders or Favorites tabs. You're not limited to dragging to folders shown in Bridge, you can also drag folders and files directly to your desktop or hard drive. To move a duplicate of the image, hold Option (Mac), or Alt (Win) when dragging a thumbnail.
