Studio Upgrades to Adobe Bridge CS3

Our studio recently upgraded all of our Adobe software, including Photoshop and Bridge. The new Bridge CS3 adds some very useful new tools, as well as having an improved interface.

The new stacking tool is particularly useful. Now a group of thumbnails can be combined into one "stacked" thumbnail, which itself contains the entire group. Very helpful when doing a first edit.

Group related images into collapsible stacks. Use stacks to organize multiple versions of the same file, group related files, or gather files to send to Adobe Photoshop CS3 or Adobe Illustrator CS3 for batch processing.

New Manayunk Photo Studio

I've moved into a new studio in the Manayunk neighborhood of Philadelphia. It's fantastic!

The studio is located at 126 Leverington Ave, at the corner of Baker Street. It's in the Mill Artist Studios complex. It's in Building II, across the street from plenty of free parking.

I have my full digital editing and printing suite set up on the second floor. I'm reserving the first floor for client presentations, including a wide screen flat panel LCD TV, for post shoot reviews. I also have access to large shooting studios across the street in the main building.

All in all, it's a great setup. Give me a call, and come take a look!
