I have been using Lightroom for a decade, but only started experimenting with Bridge, because LR takes quite a lot of space from my hard drive as the catalogs get huge. It seems that Bridge would be more efficient in that sense. At least for now it also seems that culling photos is a lot faster with bridge, because it opens previews a lot faster. So I am thinking, should I maybe use Bridge to cull and narrow down the photos and then import only the selected ones to Lightroom or maybe ditch the Lightroom completely and use Bridge+Camera Raw+Photoshop.
However, I have a couple of questions.
I noticed that I was a bit vague on some of the issues. What I would love to be able to do in comparing photos is when I choose a punch of photos, I´d love to be able to go through them back and forth full size one by one by clicking the arrow key. Now, when I click an arrow key, the whole selection is unselected and only the next photo gets selected. Is there a way to change this somehow or how is this thought in Bridge environment?
Also I noticed that when you select multiple photos, it actually shows the bigger preview in an order of selection, not in an order of the capture time as it does on the light table. Why is that? It´s confusing. You might choose "ok, I am going to use the last photo of selection and click that to make a pick, but then you find out that the last photo of selection was actually the first on the light table, and it was only shown last on the preview window because you selected it last of all the photos you selected for comparing. Confusing.
