Hi all, 

I found out something rather interesting today Adobe Bridge is free.  There is a catch unless you have opened a raw file in photoshop it will not let you edit in its own built in copy of adobe camera raw. 

But it does give you access to keywording collections and the asset management that tends to be missing in alternatives to adobe products. That and "open in" :) and right near the top of that list i find Affinity Photo and also Adobes DNG converter. 

It's not lightroom with its catalog but its not bad pretty much all the library functions are implemented. I've been using an old version of lightroom for asset management. i'm pretty sure that Bridge makes a good free alternative to manage photos with affinity photo doing the image processing. 

download it and have a play.

I have an old version of Bridge CS3 which I use and it does all that I want, as above. I tried downloading the recent Bridge CC, but it came with a load of Adobe CC baggage so I deleted it! Beware of free gifts.

Open Bridhe, Open Folder, Choose Photo, R-click to Open with......Affinity Photo, ooops not highlighted. Can't do.

So Adobe has coded that possibility out so it won't work with Affinity. Is that what we all know? Or is there a workaround, other than unsing the Windows File Explorer?
