About This Class

Hi! Welcome to my Productivity Tools for Creatives class series. My name is Raquel Torres and I’m a designer from London working in Surface Pattern Design (see my work at  

If you are a beginner at file organization and looking to find a solid solution to create a portfolio or just organise your artwork so you concentrate on doing what you love the most, this is the class for you.  

In just under one hour, I will share tips on how to develop a logical filing system and then introduce you to Adobe Bridge as a tool to keep your work easy to find and review. Bridge is much more than just an image organiser tool. In this class you will learn some of Adobe Bridge’s unique features including Keywords, file Stacking, effective use of Labels, creating Collections for your files and more.

I personally took to Bridge because on PC, I couldn’t preview Photoshop files in Windows Explorer and having to save Jpegs of each PSD file just didn’t make sense!  With Bridge I can see all file types I use without exception and once I found out all the extra features packed with Bridge I couldn’t go back to using anything else.

You don’t need any prior experience of Adobe Bridge and this class is geared towards anyone using an Adobe program for creative and/or business purposes..

To get started you just need to download a recent version of Adobe Bridge (CS5/CS6/CC).
