Histogram in Bridge?

Apr 17, 2012 2:41 PM

Tags: #bridge #feature_request #histogram

i have to admit i just started using bridge more often.

before i have used acdsee for viewing my images but because of some issues, that i think will never be solved, i dropped it.

 

my question is why has bridge no histogram (luminance and RGB)?

 

personally i don´t need an extra preview window, that screen space is wasted for me as the tumbnails are enough... but if i had a histogram instead of the preview panel, that would be usefull for me.

 

i know this:  http://www.maurodalfreddo.it/software/mdbr-histogram

 

but really.... why no build in histogram??

    Hello, check this thread from the feedback site, someone has created a panel, but it seems to be time consuming: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photoshop_family/topics/histograms_in_br idge

    You should vote for that suggestion as well.

     

    EDIT: you edited your post while I was posting my answer...

    Part of the issue is that Bridge supports more than photos. Illustrator, InDesign Files, videos, etc.

    I guess I miss your point here.  Bridge is just an image browser, not an image editor.  What good is histogram in a browser?

     

    You can't do anything to the image in Bridge to alter the histogram, so what would you use it for?

     

    Not trying to argue at all, I just want to understand your point.  Do you decide whether to open the image in an image editor like Photoshop or ACR based on a histogram?  I guess I'm just having a mental block right now.
