Hi,

You need to install the compatible version of Photoshop CC on the same machine to make this menu option appear.

For example, if you have Bridge CC 2018, you will need to install Photoshop CC 2018. And if you have Bridge CC 2017, then you need to install Photoshop CC 2017.

Thanks,

Deepak Gupta

Adobe needs to stop giving this as the answer, as it does not address this problem for users who do have the compatible version installed.

I had this problem and just updated my bridge to CC18 and it's all working fine. The photoshop tab is back.

Both PS and Br are CC18. So double check you're both on the same versions.

Creative Cloud Desktop says that Bridge (10.1.0.163) and Photoshop (21.2.0 20200604.r.225 2020/06/04: 02a81f3015 x64) are up to date, but "Photoshop" is missing from the Bridge Tools drop-down.  ???

This turned out to be a Script issue.  I enabled the first 3 startup scripts, and the Image Processor reappeared.

Thanks.  This actually worked for me.  In my opinion, this is one of several minor bugs in CC 2021 & Bridge 2021

Hello!

I just wanted to leave this here for those frustrated by this - I had updated both Photoshop and Bridge, reinstalled both, restarted both apps and my computer multiple times, made sure startup scripts were enabled (and all disabled, and all re-enabled), and still nothing worked.

Adobe took over my screen, uninstalled Creative Cloud, clicked repair, and then reinstalled bridge and photoshop, and it now works.

 

Also, if you're using Catalina or newer, you'll need to allow photoshop full disk access in preferences.

 

Should work. Seems there was something up with CC itself. Hope this helps!

Your suggestion does not work for me.  I have both Bridge 2021 & PS 2021, both current.  No Tools > PS > Image Processor.

Did you figure this out?  I am missing it as well.  Everything is up to date.  I have reinstalled and uninstalled and it's still not there.

I seem to remember older versions of Bridge had removed this option and there was a way to manually reinstall it. I wish I could find that now. I updated the apps together but I think the issue is that Photoshop is Apple Silicon native now and Bridge, as far as I know, is not.

Hi Eric,

 

It was never removed but depending on how you installed Bridge and Photoshop, it can prevent it from being installed or not.

 

So, #1) be sure you're installing the same releases at the same time,

 

and

 

#2) Be sure you installed Bridge first and PS last. (PS installs the scripts into Bridge, if Bridge (or the wrong version of Bridge) is not there, it will not install.

 

Good luck!

Hi there,

 

This problem frequently crops up for me, and I just found this solution:

 

Preferences -> Startup Scripts

 

The startup scripts were inexplicably unchecked for Photoshop. Enabling All and then restarting Bridge has fixed the problem for me.
