Before I press the "update" button for Photoshop CC 2018 and in particular Bridge CC Oct 2017...  Can anyone tell me if the Output Module still contains "Create Web Gallery"
Vital feature for me... so I'm checking before updating!

No, it doesn't have the Web Gallery. Plus Photo Downloader appears to be broken if you are downloading from a card reader. I haven't tried downloading straight from my Nikon via cable because I never used it and now don't know where I put it.<G>

It does work if you're downloading from an iPhone connected via its cable—that much I know, although it will crash if you include .mov files from iPhone 7 and later.  Some computers are seeing a performance improvement, and the Output Module does do a much better job with PDF output, but the web gallery is still on hold. Oh, and stacks now can be copied from one folder to another and remain intact.

But frankly, unless they're developing another version of Bridge alongside this one, there's very little progress towards a truly useful, and valuable, application. It's supposed to be the bridge to all Adobe apps. It could be so much to so many<sigh>

Thank you Cristen, you have saved a real big headache! I use web galleries to show several interested parties (designer, builder, estate agent) a set of images which they can discuss between themselves allowing them to easily view (preview) what otherwise could be a folder of 150mb images. (easy for a photographer but not for a builder)
Once again Adobe has taken two steps forward and one step back! Bridge is a fantastic control centre - but sadly I believe it is dying!
Adobe don't seem to have any connection to real world photographers who use the products every day.
Off now to try to find an alternative  "Web Gallery" solution - sooner or later I'll be forced to upgrade and I need a web gallery solution!

I agree with your statement about Adobe taking steps back. It's incredible that they get rid of a great option like the Web gallery. It's extremely frustrating and makes me think that they're not in touch with their end users at all.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Bridge: Non flash based local web galleries.

I still use the old 2017 Bridge CC because CC 2018 does not allow local web galleries to be created locally. I create many Gb each day and there is no way I can be uploading them all to the cloud. Please, can Adobe create the ability to make non-flash based web galleries and upload them to your own server (as Bridge 2017 did). I would like them to be non-flash based so that people can view them on iPhones and iPads.

For the knowledge to get the entire process which you may get from the guidance for the help of the Online Gallery process can also get from Epson tech support for the entire process that can make that easily.
