Using Filters

The capability to find images has been greatly improved. Although version 1 required you to select Edit > Find (see Figure 7a), Bridge CS3 now gives you an always-available Filter panel to search for images (see Figure 7b).

A simple click on any of the tags in the Filter panel narrows the images shown in thumbnail view to just those that match your criteria. You can refine your selection further by selecting more tags. Of course, if old habits die hard, the Find option is still available to you. Figure 8 shows that I have selected only those images with Paris and rated 4 or 5 stars. This has become a much easier way of finding and selecting images than the previous Find command offered.

Bridge doesn’t let you browse multiple folders at one time though (are you listening Adobe??), but you can keep your filter settings across folders by clicking on the thumbtack below the Filters panel.
