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.
It may assume that, but it would seem that I'm not the only one who wants to select image files from a memory card to be filed in different folders. I'm not looking to delete the images, which I do indeed do with the camera's deletion system, I'm frustrated with the fact that the entire memory card content has to be reloaded to make a different selection. Thanks for the feedback.
I've tried that appoach also, but that involves multiple extra steps such as renaming the folder and files. 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. When you shoot a lot of images in different locations and different subjects, any time saving in one's work flow is much appreciated.
Thanks again for the feedback.

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
Thanks so much for your most helpful suggestions. I’ve been downloading the files to specific folders using Windows 7, and not using Bridge “filter panel” as you suggested. I can see how this would be a much better process. Thank you so much for taking the time to help with what was becoming an increasingly frustrating problem.
