CS5  bridge photo downloader

Apr 1, 2013 10:30 AM

Why does the photo downloader close all of the image files from which I am selecting files for downloader once the selected files have been donloaded?  I have to then start again, and wait for all of the image file thumbnails to once again open.

    Hi there! Because the forum you originally posted in is for beginners trying to learn the basics of Photoshop, I moved your question to the Bridge General Discussion forum, where you'll get more specialized help.

    Just a guess, but program assumes after you select and download you are done.  Images should be deleted when you put card back in camera (format) rather than with downloader.

    I download all the pictures I want then move to another folder if needed after the fact.

    It would be much more effecient to use the bridge photo downloader with the options of selecting a specific folder and custom name for the images being downloaded.

     

     

    I can only confirm your concern about the lack of development regarding Photodownloader. It has much potential but needs improvement to make it a key feature for us photographers.

     

    The slow building of thumbs is one of the major flaws. Sadly enough since it was introduced Photodownloader has not changed a bit (and while Bridge is now 64 bit, on my Mac APDL still proofs to be 32 bit…)

     

    Meanwhile a faster workflow would be like Curt provided, download the lot and use Bridge filter panel and date created sort option to move them in to separate folders. At this moment that is a much quicker workflow then restarting and selecting the files in APDL every single time you need a different folder :-0
