I'm pretty sure you cannot download it unless you have an Adobe account. 

 

However, be aware that some of the folks complaining that they can't open raw files with Adobe Camera Raw have the free Bridge, and nothing else. With the Free Bridge you can view files, rename files, and a few other operations, but anything that involves changing pixels, or how they appear, cannot be done. For that you need to have one of the Photoshop Plans.

OK, Thank you. My idea was to use Bridge only for organizing of photos (catalog, keywords, ratings) and to use NX Studio from Nikon, for raw processing

Hi Pavel,

 

You do need to have an Adobe account, that is free.

Yes, that's free too. Consider ACC a Manager that keeps track of what's on your system and will also update applications as needed if you set it to Auto update or just let you know an update is available.

Yes, I have an account and even adobe's products (such as PeS, PrS, PDF writer) but I don't want to have ANYTHING to do with CC. Under these conditions, can I download and install Bridge and Bridge ONLY? So far coul'd fine a way.

Can you? No.!

ALL Adobe software Apps are 'Activated' by using the Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop App. Even the 'Free' Adobe Bridge.

The Desktop App is how Adobe - Distributes, downloads, checks 'Paid' Plans (If you have one), and Activates Apps.

****CAUTION***- If you download the Desktop App it can convert any 'perpetual' Adobe Apps to 'Subscription' versions.

 

 

Regards. My System: Lr-Classic 12.0.1 Photoshop 24.0.1, ACR 15.0, Lightroom 6.0, Lr-iOS 8.0.8, Bridge 13.0, Windows-11.

Thanks for the warning. That "conversion" sounds to me like any crininal theft. Luckily, I always keep an image copy of my entire boot drive,,,

What would be your best recomendation if I want to batch pricess the "Crop and Straughten" operation automatically to all the RAW image files I have in a folder in my computer?

That is completely not possible with only Bridge. At a minimum, you'd need ACR but that requires one of the Photoshop Plans which it sounds like you are not interested in. 

I'd suggest you check out Gimp. The price is right, no fees. I hope that helps you.
