I tag all my photos with keywords and usually use the Bridge Search function to find specific images ("water", "portraits", etc). But today, when I was trying to do a search, not all the photos that I know are tagged with a certain keyword were showing up, and some keywords even gave me no results. I may have deleted the cache trying to reset something? Please help!!! Thank you.
Bridge has issues with search sometimes. Open the folder and let the cache build and then try searching.
Are you searching in the correct area with Bridge? Bridge can focus where you want to search and you might be too narrow. Try switching to Spotlight Search : Computer.
Hi G, but the Spotlight doesn't read keywords assigned in Bridge, does it?
it does!!! thank you so much! it seems to be working this way. you saved my weekend!
I have always searched Bridge: computer but it stopped working. I the past I had the same issue and had to spent hours rebuilding the cache, if I remember correctly, but your idea is a better solution! Thanks a lot.
Thanks! but so it means I have to open EVERY folder in the hard drive I use to store thousands of photos?
Yes it does.
Hello, I'm having this issue again. All of a sudden my search stopped finding my photos when I search for keywords and my search in the Spotlight is already set to "computer". Any new insights on how to fix this? help!
I'm using Bridge 2021 because I've tried updating it and things don't work well in this iMAc 2013.
