Bridge: Restore Export Panel In Bridge

Why was the Export Panel dropped from Bridge CC? The Export to Disk is an incredible time saving routine, especially for those of us who find the Light Room catalog structure underwhelming, and instead use Photoshop and Bridge.

The Bridge CC Tools > Photoshop > Image Processor is a work around, but is now where near as clean, flexible, and fast.

Why was it dropped from Bridge CC?

Here is a screen shot from Bridge CS6:

Is this resolved yet. It's breaking my head in having to do everything manually. Or quitting everything CC and opening CS6 (just keeping it installed for this one reason is ridiculous) just to render my developed images to disk

Me too, need the Export module/panel. I wouldn't like to use Image Processor each time (I just don't want two programs be busy with one task).
The best export dialogue Adobe has developed is actually appearing in Lightroom, but Lightroom cannot export files with metadata was changed in another program. Manually clicking on each photograph to change metadata isn't an option either.

Because of this I go back and forth between CC and CS6, madness! And even Capture NX2 is faster. Why should I use CC when CS6 is better? Professional photographers need to output the photos they work on in (the excellent) ACR. And no, I don't want to use LR to do this.

Jeffrey:

Don't know if you are still monitoring this conversation, but if you are, would it be possible to let us know if Adobe plans to include the export panel in Bridge CC, or a future version of Bridge CC?

Looks like most folks, me included, are continuing to work with Bridge CS6, instead of Bridge CC because of this issue. As mentioned, it takes me about 40% longer to use the Photoshop imaging approach with Bridge CC.

Thanks,

I too have had to keep Bridge CS6 around for this purpose, which is a problem with newer RAW files. Also, I am keeping Fireworks CS6 also, because that too was deemed unessential in the Adobe product lineup. Never mind that my entire web design workflow and maintenance of existing websites depends on it. I will save that rant for another day/forum. Ugh.

Please bring the EXPORT module back to Bridge, Adobe! I foolishly got excited about Jeffrey's link to install the Output module, before realizing it is not at all what I or any of the other people here want.

IMHO...

1) Image Processor cannot replace the previous Export feature in Bridge as it is slow and ties up Photoshop so that I can't edit while exporting.

2) Lightroom, in all it's glory and plethora of export functionality, is just too cumbersome for my workflow. I do not need a catalog, I just need a simple tool to browse thumbnails and quickly export RAW files and Photoshop files to JPG.

I would like to add my voice to the clamor for the EXPORT panel in Bridge CC. I spent hours trying to properly install the output panel only to be presented with a tool I don't use.

Oh no! So I've got to keep both versions of bridge now. :P This is the suck. Come on Adobe, first you yank the HTML options from Illustrator Save for Web from CS6 and now this? Please give us a way to add it back, output is NOT the same thing. I shoot stock and portrait etc. I need to be able to quickly export various sizes, input meta data, and save to specific (and consistent) locations). None of the current features appear to do this as efficiently as the Export module.

Shocked to learn the export panel is missing in CC it was great for ease and convenience. I don't want to use a Lightroom database or have to open Photoshop for such an essential task, one that the export panel performed with elegance. BRING IT BACK ADOBE!
