On a Mac, can I drag and drop an image from an internet browser, such as Firefox into Adobe Bridge?
If so, HOW?
You might try dragging your image to the desktop, letting go of it, then click on it again and drag it into Bridge.
I've found that this works on Windows XP for files that won't follow the drag and drop rules. In Win XP if you do the two steps sequntiall the copy of the file on the desktop is removed, if you drag a bunch of things to the desktop then drag them into Bridge you have go back and delete all the desktoip copies.
Just drag the image to your desktop in the Finder. The image file will instantly and automatically appear in the Desktop folder in Bridge. From there you can use Bridge to move it wherever you want.
The way the Finder works in Mac OS X, I can't even remotely imagine a situation in which any significant OS resources would be involved in drag and dropping an image from a web browser window to the desktop.
Remember that we don't have to deal with the confounded Application Frame mode (unless we were dumb/insane enough to turn it on or leave it on). All that's involved is dragging the image slightly off the browser window and, bam!, it's on the desktop.
What's more to the point, there are no "copy to" or "move to" commands available when reading a web browser on the Mac.
Sorry, Curt. Huge differences between Windows and Mac.
If I take the trouble to call up the contextual menu by Control-Clicking (that's right, Control, not Command) on the image (one-button mouse too), I get several options, one of them being to copy the image, which puts it on the clipboard, ready for pasting into a Photoshop window, but not onto the desktop, and that does take OS and RAM resources.
Thanks for all the responses. Yeah I can drag & drop to the desktop, or a finder window with no bother. You can even drag to the Bridge icon in the dock and it will drop the image into the Cache folder BUT this all adds the extra step of then copying into the relevant folder in bridge and when you're gathering a lot of image research to sort into different catogaries, it can add up. OK, it's not much of an extra step admitedly, but I wondered if I had overlooked any hidden away preference.... Maybe Adobe can impliment a fix
