Updated in October 2017 release of Adobe Bridge CC

Bridge CC allows you to easily upload your JPEG and raw images to Adobe Stock using the Publish panel. To get started, first set up your profile as a Contributor on Adobe Stock Contributor portal (https://contributor.stock.adobe.com/). You also have an option to sync your existing Fotolia contributor account with the Contributor portal. For more details, see Adobe Stock Contributor | Get started.

Note:

If you are using this feature for the first time in Bridge, you can click the Setup button provided in the Adobe Stock Contributor under Publish panel to navigate to the portal.

Once you complete the registration, your Adobe ID becomes ready for contribution. You can now upload your photos to Adobe Stock from within Bridge — select Adobe Stock Contributor publish service in the Publish panel and drag a selection of photos from the Content panel onto the Publish panel. Then, you can go to the Adobe Stock Contributor portal to tag the uploaded images and submit them to Adobe Stock for moderation. Adobe Stock Contributor portal automatically extracts the Bridge Keywords and sub-keywords associated with your images and displays them as tagged Keywords. For more details, see Adobe Stock | Contributor FAQ.

Note:

Sign in using your Adobe ID for registration. Enterprise IDs and Federated IDs are not supported.

Note:

To view the new Publish Panel in any workspace in Adobe Bridge CC, choose Window > Publish Panel. See Adobe Bridge workspace for more details.

    2. Once you confirm, Bridge converts the raw images to JPEG using the Adobe Camera Raw plug-in.

    Note:

    Bridge converts only those raw image formats to JPEG that are supported by Adobe Camera Raw. To find out if Adobe Camera Raw supports your camera model, see Cameras supported by Camera Raw.

  4. Progress bars appear in the Publish panel displaying the conversion and upload status. The converted images are automatically added to the upload queue. You can continue to work in Bridge while the upload/conversion is in progress.
