I have started using Bridge to download photos (this is the first reasonably satisfactory photo downloader I have found since the Windows XP downloader, which I have been using up to now). But it is very annoying to have to entirely redo the save options every time. I always do essentially the same thing, but it doesn't seem possible to change the defaults. People complained about this in the last version (apparently earlier versions allowed default changes), and it was thought this would be fixed in the next version, but it wasn't. And why won't it just let you automatically number the photos starting with the next number after the photos already in the folder? Whenever I save photos to a subfolder which already has photos in it I have to open the folder, find the last number used, and manually set the numbering to start at the next number, which is very annoying. For that matter, why do we have to deal with subfolders at all? Why can't we just specify a folder and have it save to that folder, using the folder name and automatically numbering the photos starting with the next number not used in the folder (the XP downloader does this).
Have you tried ImageIngesterPro?
If you are not interested in fixing the shortcomings of the Bridge downloader I'll have to keep looking for a satisfactory alternative. But I think the things I want to be able to do are no-brainers and for the life of me I can't understand why someone would design a downloader that can't do them.
