HI Everyone,

I was following a tutorial that was walking through the steps to import multiple photoshop files as layers in a new photoshop file. The tutorial shows that you should be able to go to Tools in Bridge and there should be a photoshop option with a bunch of sub options. See image below:

However when I go to the Tools menu I see this :

Where did the missing options go and how to I access them? I am using Bridge cc 8.1.0.383 on a mac running High Sierra

You need to make sure you have the right version of Bridge. If you installed PS 2019, but didn't install the new Bridge version, you will have this problem.

Hi Gretchen,

 

The scripts to place that tool are included in the Photoshop installer, it's not automatically installed within Bridge.

 

What you need to do is to uninstall both Bridge and Photoshop, (you may wish to restart your computer, just in case), and then install first Bridge and then Photoshop. 

 

See if that works.

Hi Gary.
This solved the missing Tool/Photoshop option for me.

I've had this problem on and off for years and have never been able to understand why it went or how it came back. Thank for such a clear explanation.
