    Bridge vs Lightroom - Which do you use?

    Geobop Level 1

      I just subscribed to Creative Cloud am am learning how to use both Bridge and Lightroom. I've been using Apple's Aperture program to organize images, but I want to see how Lightroom stacks up and perhaps switch.


      I have so many things to figure out, it's going to take a while. But one question I'd like to as on this forum is whether you, as a web designer, use Bridge or Lightroom to organize your images.


      I'm currently using Aperture to organize sort of a base library of images that haven't been processed for a website. If I select one of these images (from Aperture or Lightroom), open it in Photoshop and save it for the web - as Animal.jpg, for example - then I figured I'd use Bridge to organize Animal.jpg.


      But someone on the Lightroom forum told me that would be confusing; I should use one program or the other.


      So I just wondered which program you use. I haven't yet figured out exactly how they overlap and what the pros and cons of each program are.
