    Transfer Bridge images and data to new pc

    KBarne

      I am using CS5.1 on Windows 7 pc.  Just purchased windows 8.1 pc.  CS5.1 PS and Bridge installed on new pc.  How do I get images over and keep Bridge collections and metadata?  Thanks for your help.

          Image Metadata is in your image files.  Bridge keeps Image information in its caches. If missing bridge will build its cache.  If you use Adobe bridges distributed caching the bridges caches ares stored in two files in each of you image folders. ACR keeps you RAW file conversion settings in an ACR database or in ACR sidecar files which are stored in the same folders as your RAW files and perhaps bridges caches.  These settings are also stored in conversion image files metadata.
