Photoshop: Project Bin or Open Documents in Mini Bridge

One feature I love in Elements 9 and wish I has at work in CS4/6 is the Project Bin or rather the option to show open documents. I don't necessarily have all the documents open from one folder or they might be temporary untitled-1 files that aren't yet saved.

For a pro version add dragging of layers into the 'open documents' documents.

yes! i really want a photo bin as in elements so i can easily see and navigate to other opened files. the tabs on the top makes it hard to work on many files at a time - especially when many of my opened files are untitled.

It would save a lot of time for me as well.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled
Photoshop: Add PS Element's Project bin.


Working with many files open would be much more efficient if the project bin already in PS Elements were migrated over to Photoshop. To the uninitiated--PS Elements has had, for at least 5-6 versions now, a collapsible divider at the bottom of the screen that can be opened and closed, which shows a thumbnail view of all of the open files. To maximized a file, one simply need to click on the corresponding thumbnail.

With the full version of PS, there is no such feature. It's time consuming to have to go to the window menu and scroll through file names. Many times I work with files with very similar file names and forget which one is the appropriate photo. That means I have to select the photo, then return to the Window menu and select another one and use trial and error. Also the bin allows one to easily select multiple photos which can then be closed all at once. I would also like the option of selecting multiple photos in such a scenario and applying an action just to those highlighted photos.

Hi I have worked with PSE for many years, and am used to having the project bin. I process thousands of images each month from photo-shoots to build catalogs for our on-line sales business. I typically sort through sets of approximately 50-100 images at a time. Without an efficient way to pick through the 50 to 100 images I have of each subject efficiently Photoshop CC is not a viable option.

Yes! I just upgraded to CC from elements 9 mostly because of the ability to batch process as all of the images I give to my clients are finished off with actions. Doing this last step one by one in elements took a long time with a gallery of 50 - 75 images. So it has saved me lots of time that way, and also I can batch save. But not having the project bin to see the thumbnails of the open files is a real problem. At this point I am going into CC to get all my actions and batch saving done and then having to open some of them back up in elements to create collages, etc. It also makes it really hard to close several open images at once. They need to fix this!

For Pete sake Adobe, put a photo bin in ps!
Seriously, or can we write a code to do that ourselves?

I will be cancelling my subscription as soon as it expires because there is no photo bin.  I am a digital scrapbooker and need to be able to see multiple files at once.  I am SOOOOO disappointed by this supposedly "better" product!!
