To take advantage of advancements in high-resolution display technologies, Adobe Bridge includes native support for high-resolution displays. This feature is currently available for the Mac OS (for example, the MacBook Pro with Retina display). You can work with a sharper and clearer user interface on devices with high-resolution displays. Thumbnails in panels are also much clearer. Text and complex artwork also display in greater clarity, and in colors and hues that appear more vibrant than before.
Features not available in Bridge CC
The following features are no longer available in this version of Adobe Bridge.
- Adobe Output Module
- Export Panel
- Compact Mode
- 3D File format thumbnails and previews
- Synchronized window
The Adobe Output Module is now available as a separate module that can be installed after you've installed Adobe Bridge. For detailed instructions see, Install Adobe Output Module for Bridge CC.
The functionality to create contact sheets, PDFs, and web galleries is also available in Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Lightroom, which are included in your Creative Cloud subscription.
All functionality in the Export panel, such as exporting images to online services, such as Flickr.com or Facebook.com, is available from Adobe Lightroom. For more information, see Exporting Photos using Adobe Lightroom.
The Compact mode is no longer available in this version of Adobe Bridge. However, if you resize the application window and make it smaller, the application rearranges the panels to resemble the earlier compact mode. Maximizing the application window again, however, does not return the panels to the previous state.
