I am running PSE 2018 and downloaded Bridge 2018. I turned off my computer and then started it back up. When I opened PSE back up and went to file, there was no "open bridge" tab to open bridge with. I have searched in bridge to see if there is something I missed and have read different online instructions on how to make it work but can not seem to find any. Any ideas, or does anyone have a customer service help number to Adobe to help me get this solved? Thanks
I'm sorry but Bridge was never intended to work with PSE. Well, that's not completly true becuase a long time ago it was included for a very brief period but no longer.
I belive you need to use Explorer with PSE, but not Bridge.
Bridge was included on the mac versions of pse 4. pse 6 and pse 8. Photoshop elements versions after that, on both windows and mac, have the Organizer instead of Bridge. Now Bridge is really meant to use with Crreative Cloud applications like Photoshop CC.
The main difference between Bridge and the Organizer is with Bridge one can browse for files, much like one does in Windows File Explorer, while the Organizer uses a database to keep track of files, meaning one needs to import the files into the Organizer in order to view them.
