What is Adobe Bridge?

Adobe Bridge is an organizational software application created and released by Adobe Systems as a part of the Adobe Creative Suite. Its primary purpose is to link the parts of the Creative Suite together using an interface similar to the file browser found in previous versions of Adobe Photoshop. It is accessible from all other components of the Creative Suite. Adobe Bridge is also included with the stand-alone Photoshop application,[2] and can perform certain Photoshop processing functions separately. Adobe Bridge is extensively customizable using JavaScript.


The most common release is 001.000.004, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. The primary executable is named Bridge.exe. The setup package generally installs about 42 files and is usually about 58.68 MB (61,530,984 bytes). The installed file AdobeUpdater.dll is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
