Where would I go to view the “hidden images” - I use bridge to do all camera raw adjustments before taking to photoshop. I use a card reader & do not download all images on card to bridge. I view from my card but it seems to be hiding images more frequently. How can I access these or resolve them from going in hiding? 🙂
You don't really download to Bridge. Bridge is just a type of image browser. You download them to your hard drive, which you should do, as camera cards can easily become corupted.
I'm confused by your use of hidden also. So I'm not sure if that mean delete, corrupted, or actually hiddened.

Okay, now it makes sense. If you are viewing and correcting your photos on your camera card, it produces the XMP sidecar file that contains the developing info for your image. Bridge doesn't display them, as there is nothing to display. If you look in a file browser, you will see the xmp files with the same name as your raw files, but with the .xmp extension.
Here is a screen shot of Bridge and Microsoft's file explorer. This is images that I have on a camera card. There are 90 images, and one XMP file of an image that I made corrections on. You can tell that it as been edited in Bridge due to the edit icon in the upper right of the thumbnail. Bridge shows 1 hidden file - the one that I edited.
You are incredible! Answered all questions crystal clear! Thank you SO much!
i guess I was mainly wanting to know 100% it was not storing ANYTHING “hidden” that I had no access to! But this is the answer. Thank you! (It’s mt first year in this journey) :camera_with_flash:
