One big workflow benefit is that you're in a single application. Importing files, performing file management, keywording, editing, publishing, and printing can all be done from a single interface. In some cases you're literally one key press in moving between modules.

While Photoshop+Bridge generally offer the same capabilities, Lightroom is packaged and designed in such a way that all those capabilities are far more accessible. In Photoshop, you don't have at-hand access to the histogram, tone curve, white-balance (color balance), and exposure tools all at once. There are a wide variety of other photography-related tools ...

I like to use the analogy I got from a few folks at Adobe: PS was built by a team of image processing computer science folks and later improved with the addition of a bunch of graphic artist types. There wasn't a clear definition of WHO the product was designed for, photographers, graphic artists, designers; pros or amateurs. Bridge was bolted on the side ...

As well as being a one-shop stop for the vast majority of your photo management and editing needs, for me the key difference between Lightroom and Photoshop is the fact that Lightroom is non-destructive and works on RAW files. That is that all of the changes you make simply add notes to the file (Meta data) telling Lightroom what changes to make when you ...

Photoshop has an entire automation workflow that you can use to automate batch operations. It would be ideal for what you are trying to do here. These batch operations are called Actions and you can get to them from the Windows...Actions menu. You then make a new action and name it. You can then record the steps you want to do, opening the file, ...

To convert a decimal longitude or latitude to degrees (minutes and seconds), simply take the first, whole, number and use it as the degrees. Then multiply the remainder after the decimal point by 60 to get minutes. Continue multiplying the remainder of the minutes by 60 to get seconds of degrees. Your example of -79.06782 would then be: -79 degrees .06782 ...

You need to convert the format, which is simply a floating point number of degrees, into the separate parts for degrees and minutes. And it looks like it wants latitude measurements with the N (north) or S (south). Your example converts to -79° 4' 4.1514" I'm not sure exactly what Bridge wants, probably -79,4.069 I know that Adobe Lightroom 4's "MAP" ...

Try converting the files from NEF to DNG with Adobe DNG Converter, and see if CS5 can open the DNG file.

Lightroom 3 has the built-in ability to set a filesize constraint when exporting. I haven't used it myself, and I'm aware there has been the odd bug related to that functionality, but it definitely exists.

Height x Width - This is the standard in the Book world, and Fine Art in particular, the dimensions are always listed as H x W. (Reference the Chicago Style Manual.) Also in wood industry and in the sign companies everything is H x W. The orientation doesn't have any importance. I know in the Graphics/Computer world we sometimes do not have the image to ...

The ratio is probably adjusted according to orientation as well. For example, a 3:2 image would be wider than it is tall, where as a 2:3 image would be taller than it is wide. Same goes for 4:3 vs. 3:4. If you had a vertical panorama, you might find the ratio to be 9:16, rather than 16:9. Having the aspect ratio be corrected for orientation is actually a ...

Using Google seems to move the exact point to the nearest road, so if you are on a hill somewhere the co-ordinates will be a bit different for what you expect. The best bet would be to use the method above To convert a decimal longitude or latitude to degrees (minutes and seconds), simply take the first, whole, number and use it as the degrees. Then ...

The problem was solved by restarting Adobe Bridge and then clicking the little pen icon next to the metadata IPTC core info, and also waiting for the messages on the bottom left "Rebuilding index". Also I had to use the menu find, not the quick search, and select "metadata" and check the box "include non-indexed files" Wow, they really make it hard.

I always just use LR and let it keep track. Stacks work nicely if it is primarily based on one image, though if you have combined multiple, perhaps either using keywords or putting it in some collection of edited works would fit well.

I appreciate the above responses, but I was unable to get any of the resulting GPS data to stick in my photos. Bridge continually complained about the formatting. So I dug a little deeper and found a way to get the GPS data in using Lightroom 4. This is pretty cool: ...

Are you converting the files to srgb first? Check in bridge preferences > output to see if preserve color profiles is checked.

No, you can't. You can right click and choose "Close Column" but they will reappear at the right. You can set it up as you like it, then create a custom workspace, but guess what, they always come back! The best you can do is either drag and drop them to the right hand side, out of the way, or "close column" (or uncheck them).

I'd start conducting tests to see if I get the same results with a different card, as well as ensuring the underlying file system is correct (full format of the card), as well as trying the same card on a different machine, trying a different reader, and checking with a local photography club that someone else with the same camera model can produce something ...

I don't believe Bridge has this functionality. Photoshop and Lightroom (with a mogrify plugin) have this ability to set a file size based export.

eek this is annoying - I have the same problem - have you checked this post out forums.adobe.com/thread/561800?tstart=0 Hope this works! Rob
