I am astonished that you got rid of the Adobe Output Panel in Bridge. Why?! You took a job that usually take me 10 minutes and turned it into an hour today. I am really unimpressed with the direction of Adobe lately. Maybe it's time for our relationship to be over...
Go to this page in order to manually install and restore the Output workspace:
Dear Adobe, Please add the Export panel back to Bridge! The ability create presets to batch save RAW files to JPEG in a specified size was/is critical to my workflow. I like that I could just drag/drop the files to my custom "Save to Hard Drive" preset, click one button, and Bridge would process and save any number of files in the background. I can't believe the official solution is for users to go to Lightroom to export photos they are already managing in Bridge/Photoshop. If I'm using Bridge, it's because I prefer it to Lightroom. What about the users who don't even have access to Lightroom? What are they supposed to do (besides buy and learn Lightroom)? I just can't understand why when I am spending $50/month for this software, Adobe is removing more features than it's adding?
I also believe removing the export panel from Bridge CC was a mistake. Lightroom is an alternative to be sure, but it doesn't offer the same functionality and convenience when it comes to exporting images.
Adobe, what's wrong with giving people choice?
This is quite unfortunate that Output, Export, and even my trusty Compact Mode has been removed. Now I must install Lightroom, a program which I don't know how to use and now have to educate myself during valuable work time to learn how to use it (I highly doubt my company is interested in subscribing to a even temporary Lynda.com subscription).
Please do not "fix" features that never had problems, especially with such an integral program as Bridge. This is a terrible inconvenience. Not happy with the long awaited CC upgrade (as it pertains to Bridge).
The Output Module is stil available as separate download, The export module has indeed been removed and in CS4 they introduced Mini Bridge to replace the compact mode (which in my opinion has always been next to useless but that is personal…)
And yes, upgrading should mean expanding features or improved or both, not deleting them without offering good working alternatives
