No, it is still in Bridge CC.

Did you uninstall Photoshop CC after installing Photoshop CC 2014? If so, that may have removed some of the Bridge integration scripts by mistake. Reinstalling Photoshop CC 2014 should replace the scripts.

I know my tongue-in-cheek comment in the thread merged with this one was a bit on the faux paranoid side. But I went on to explain the problem. And you didn't address the fact that Bridge CC specifically was saying I had to use Photoshop CC. Your response was less than helpful. This one I hope is the answer I was looking for in the first place. Thanks.

As Chris Cox noted, uninstall Photoshop CC 2014 and reinstall it. I did and now it works properly. But I'm afraid to remove the old Photoshop CC fearing it will remove the scripts that run Image Processor.

Yes, I did reinstall PS CC 2014 in order to get back Photoshop tools menu inside Bridge. IT WORKED. THANK YOU.
It is very sad that it happens without Adobe noticing it in first place. For me its obviously that every body (90% of people) will install the new version before uninstall old version, afterward you have to test it first, right?? So this issue should be predictable by Adobe and a solution should be addressed builtin new release. Maybe this is a minor issue, but sometimes it is this tiny feature that will save us hours of work. Until now I was selecting and moving hundreds of files in separated folders to convert then to JPG directly from PS, therefore to move back again to another folder, and so on.

I did not have PS CC installed only CC 2014. I uninstalled PS CC 2014 64 bit and Bridge 64 bit and reinstalled both on Win7 64 bit -- still no Image Processor under tools.

I am an Adobe fan but am sorely disappointed with things not updating properly.

Don't get me started on the Adobe Cloud Desktop app that refused to update UNTIL the last update couple days ago... FIRST update that processed all the way through without an error!

New update to photoshop and this is still broken? The workarounds are time consuming.

There used to be in Bridge a menu option under Tools - Photoshop - Image processor. It's gone now that am using PS CC 2014 & Bridge 2014.

NOW, I find it in PS CC 2014, under Files - Scripts - Image Processor.

Why "hide" it of all places in PS and NOT Bridge, then "hide" it under Files, then of all things SCRIPTS ??? Just stumbled into it this morning . . .

No way to get to Image Processor from Bridge -- no option Tools - Photoshop anymore. I refuse to unregister my Adobe apps, format and reinstall Windows again along with all the updates, patches, fixes, then software with ITS patches, fixes, and updates then configure and tweak everything again. Did that twice - damned if gonna do it a third time to fix an Adobe problem.

You Apple guys think differently than us Windows people. Some things just cause me to shake my head and try to understand why??? Like cropping moves the image RATHER than the crop boundary box. Sometimes most disconcerting to work "backwards".

You are confusing the script that has been in Photoshop for many years with the script in Bridge (which just calls the script in Photoshop).

Please read the previous posts in this topic to find out how to fix your scripts in Bridge.

Also, Photoshop CC 2014 has not been updated yet. I think you are confusing the ACR update with a Photoshop update.

The Creative cloud desktop calls it a Photoshop CC 2014 update so I'll call it a Photoshop CC 2014 update. Be nice if it fixed something rather than being just and ACR update.

I just uninstalled CC and that screws up the file associations in bridge and removes the image processor entirely. So now I'm uninstalling CC 2014, bridge and reinstalling them. Will the image processor reappear? It didn't the first time I installed CC 2014.
CC 2014 is really half baked.

Hurray, reinstall and the image processor is actually there. Looks like CC2014 might be fine on a clean install but its not always happy from a CS6/CC machine.

Did you try to reinstall or run a repair on CC 2014? Try this: install Photoshop CC 2014 over the top of itself (without removing it). To do this, in the Creative Cloud desktop app, go to the Apps tab. In the lower half, labeled Find New Apps, there is a filter drop-down to the right. By default it says All Apps or Filters & Versions, click it and choose Previous Version. Find Photoshop on the list and the button will say “Install” but it will also be a drop-down menu. Choose CC 2014 (15.0). This will do a “repair” install over the top of your existing files.

To repeat a post concerning Bridge & PS CC 2014, but changing references to Bridge and PS CC 2015.1.2 - There used to be in Bridge a menu option under Tools - Photoshop - Image processor. It's gone now that I upgraded to PS & Bridge CC 2015

From that prior post, now I find it in PS under Files - Scripts - Image Processor.

Very annoying that this kind of thing re-occurs when Adobe knows about it.  So only solution is to take more time I don't have and re-install them?  Very hard to speak positively about PS when this kind of thing happens.
