Am thinking about a newer version of Photoshop, that is, Photoshop CC 2017. What else, such as Bridge & Extension Manager etc. ought to be installed together with Photoshop CC 2017?
Thanks.

Hi there,

Bridge CC is available as a separate application in the Creative Cloud desktop app, from where you may install it. So it will not be installed along with Photoshop. You may refer our Photoshop FAQ section here https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/faq.html
 
Extension manager is no longer being developed or supported by Adobe.
If you wish to install plugins in the latest version, Details are at the following article:

Thank you.

It sounds that Photoshop CC is designed for the professionals.  I'm not a professional, just an amateur.  Photoshop cs is good enough for me. 

Thanks.

Hi Newbieold, 

Photoshop CC has been designed for both professionals and amateurs. Overtime we've made the application interface easy to use. There are some changes in the overall look and feel of the app and addition of some great tools that can help you to learn and work seamlessly. Please check out the articles below and get to know more about Photoshop CC. You can use the trial version of Photoshop CC to follow along.
