Chapter seven. Opening the Right Files Quickly

Opening files doesn't seem like the most glamorous subject on earth, but if you're going to process large numbers of files, the one thing you don't want to do is open them one by one. In many cases, processing files efficiently doesn't start with opening the filesit starts earlier, by selecting the right files in the first place. For example, if you have a folder full of car images and you only want to select the Fords, it's going to go a lot faster if each of the Ford images is tagged with a Ford keyword. Instead of selecting files by looking for them visually and clicking them, you can then choose Edit > Find and set up a search for files where Ford appears in the keywords and process only those files. That's what this chapter is about: integrating the Find function in Adobe Bridge with the Open command in Photoshop.
