Adobe Bridge 2023 Multi Monitor Setup

Another year is almost over and Adobe has announced major updates to its Photoshop, Lightroom and Bridge applications.

Here, one of my favourites with changes to layout in Adobe Bridge when using more than one monitor.

Rearranging workspaces is now easy and dragging panels off screen to a second monitor allows for a more streamlined experience.

Adobe Bridge is of course a very underrated program, I don't use it a lot but I do use it for important tasks - more to come on that later.

Here some images I have photographed in my Bridge Library featuring Billie Eilish and Trinity College's campanile. The campanile was completed in 1853 to designs by noted architect Charles Lanyon. Seven-time Grammy-award winner Billie Eilish wrote and performed the theme song to Daniel Craig's fifth and final James Bond film No Time to Die.

Drag the area shown in the above image and move the image preview off screen to the second monitor so that one screen can hold all of the panels and one screen holds only the image.

Here, below, the dual screen layout is shown.

And here, right click on the panel at the top, here I'm in Filmstrip and this brings up a context menu that allows you to reset to the original layout, to bring the panels back from the second monitor and any layout changes you have made.

Adobe Bridge might not be the program that you use most often, but there are good reasons to start it up and recent updates have made it more usable, particularly with dual or multiple monitor setups.

More posts to come soon on Adobe's recent updates to Lightroom, Photoshop and Bridge. Check back regularly for more and sign up for updates.
