Batch Rename in Adobe Bridge

Easily Batch Rename Files and Add metadata in Adobe Bridge. This is a quick and easy tutorial on a question I get all the time from individuals who want to get organized. They want to batch rename their files, add metadata or keywords and move images into folders. Look the best option is to follow my steps in the Ultimate Guide to Adobe Bridge or Lightroom Class. In this video I will show you how to fix most of your issues. It is a long video, so if you click to view in YouTube it will have time stamps available.

The Ultimate Guide to Adobe Bridge. This has been my most popular video on YouTube. Adobe Bridge is a browser made to be able to display a wide variety of formats that can be created in the Adobe Creative Suite. Bridge can display photos, vector illustrations, videos, and etc. Bridge can also be used to add metadata, used for keyword application and searches, organization and sorting. I will show you how to use Adobe Bridge to create a workflow such as downloading, culling. Bridge can also use to export basic files. I am a photographer so I will learn towards the photography side of using the application, but the same rules will apply to other fields.

Personally, I use Photo Mechanic as my preferred browser, but you can use Adobe Lightroom as well. I not a fan of the Bridge Photo Downloader, and prefer the Lightroom Classic Import. However, Lightroom is slow and the cataloging aspect does not work for me. I prefer Photo Mechanic because of its simplicity, and speed. Spending money on a specific browser is overkill for the majority of individuals watching these videos. I would suggest trying both to see what you like.

    I have a Facebook Group called, “Learn Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, and Bridge.” I created this group because I get a lot of questions on YouTube that are hard to answer unless I can see the issue. This will allow a place you can ask questions, and more importantly post images and videos.
