David Kilpatrick Posted April 26, 2013 Share Posted April 26, 2013 In another thread, I gave this reply to an off-topic question, and it may be worth 'reprinting' here for anyong using Adobe Bridge whether with PS or Elements. The actions referred to apply on Mac OSX and should also be replicated on Windows. This is how I use Bridge's rapid full screen height view and 100% zoom to go through my shoots and select/reject images for conversion. I do this in Bridge using these commands: Space Bar = full screen view. Click Mouse on any point on this view = zoom to100% at that point still in full screen mode. Right or left arrow keys = move to next picture AT THE MAGNIFICATION IN USE (full screen, move to full screen - 100%, move to next image at the same relative location for the 100% view). Mouse scroll = zoom to 200, 400, 800% or reduce the other way. Click mouse when zoomed = return to full screen. Press space bar when in zoomed mode or full screen = return to Bridge normal view thumbs and preview. Press Cmd+Backspace = Delete file entirely (which I hit if the 100% view falls short of required sharpness). Depending on your machine and your filetype and size, you may need to wait several seconds at 100% view to see the picture at its true sharpness.You can also star rate your images during this process but I never bother. It's a very fast way of using Bridge/ACR which is slicker than Lightroom and 'intelligent' in the way it responds. So most of my pre-edit and pre-raw conversion selection/rejection is handled without going into PS. David Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
