That's been moved to the Optional Plug-ins section in CS4 (they haven't posted the Optional Plug-ins for CS5 just yet). Use the Output Module from Bridge to create PDF presentations instead.
Create web galleries and PDFs with Adobe Output Module:
I'm actually upset that this WONDERFUL feature was removed. It made my life so much easier and the results were excellent. Bridges CS5's results shocking, intrusive and ruin the designs I do when I want to build a simple PDF presentation for viewing.
I'm more confused why it was removed, it wasn't harming anyone. In fact it made the world go round a bit smoother.
I agree so much with you...
Can we make a vote to restaure this plugin ?
Output in Bridge is not the same plugin at all :
where can i convert into a different ICC profile the pdf for exemple...
or try to export pdf contact sheet with 200-300 PSD files
(i don't even know if it works because it takes so much time i had to crash the application...)
I'd like to add my voice to this request as well. One of my common tasks in Photoshop was to open a multi-page PDF document, erase various markings from the pages, and re-export it as a PDF again. Now it appears the only way I can do this is to open the document, make my edits, and then save every page to my drive as separate files, launch bridge, locate the files, and then use the 'output' feature to re-compile them again. Seems like Adobe chose to arbitrarily dump a perfectly good and very handy feature in favor of making me use a secondary app that I never open for anything else. What used to be a five second job now takes five minutes. Idiocy. Hope someone creates a plugin or automation to restore this lost functionality...
They're such idiots to remove PDF presentation AND Contact Sheet II, and leave us with the useless Output garbage. It doesn't tell you how many pages it's generating, and it doesn't automatically size the page like PDF Presentation does.
On top of that, their useless Optional Plugin package installs a Contact Sheet II that doesn't even work! It returns an error "The command “<unknown>” is not currently available."
Are there a team of monkeys at Adobe? No, no.. ..monkeys wouldn't do something this retarded.
"sorry about that"??
When the hell did you stop caring about the end user?
If you search the forums for "PDF presentation CS5" or "Contact Sheet CS5", you'll see a lot of people used these functions. Who's stupid idea was it to get rid of these?
CS5 is not an upgrade. It's a HUGE headache. If you add features, fine, JUST LEAVE THE OTHER ONES THERE. Stop removing things because you think people shouldn't use them. "Sorry about that" doesn't work for people who make a living using this crap.
Any update on this feature getting back into photoshop? I have CS5 and I must say this cost me almost 2 hours of frustration and I agree with others - bridge isn't the answer - at least the way it is done now. Since photoshop is an object based application, why take this out??? If this was a marketing move to get us to buy acrobat, that would be very sad indeed.
