I love working in Adobe Bridge to manage my digital photos. But I take so many similar shots, I sometimes have a difficult time distinguishing them from one another because of the tiny thumbnail preview. I know I can adjust the thumbnail preview slider and have all the thumbnails display larger, but I’m wondering if there is a way to make just one image larger temporarily.


You’re right; adjusting the thumbnail size slider will make all of your thumbnails larger or smaller. But if you just want to make one thumbnail larger for a quick peek, we have the trick for you. Here’s an easy way to make the thumbnail image really big—full-screen big!


To preview an image from Bridge at full-screen size:

1.       Select an image in the Content panel, as shown in Figure A.
