quick question! 
I have never used or plan to use Bridge, is not part of my workflow. I import and organize with LR and edit with PS. Can I safely uninstall Bridge (from the creative cloud dashboard) from my computer to save space?
not sure if LR or PS are using it for something on the background.


thanks a lot in advance!

Yes, there is no issue. Bridge is only a viewer and does not catalog any files. If you ONLY use LRC, then Bridge is not necessary.

 

However, let me provide one good use for Bridge before you toss it: Occasionally, I create images or receive images that I would never put into LRC, but I do need to review and maybe even enhance them. (For example, if I have something I wish to sell or give away, I'll take some photos of it to put into an ad.) For things like this, I would never use LRC but find Bridge essential. If you are severely hurting for space on your computer, that's one thing. But it does no harm to leave it where it is, or remove it.
