Place multiple files from Mini Bridge in Photoshop document
When you work with document that need additional files to be placed, Photoshop allows you to insert only one file at time through Place command in File menu. To insert (place) multiple files at once you can use Bridge or Mini Bridge. Here is my suggestion how to insert multiple files from Mini Bridge and to have best possible preview of that document at same time. I assume that document is open in Photoshop and Mini Bridge icon is visible at palettes on the right side of screen. First ensure that top most layer is selected, because otherwise you may not be able to see placed files. Press F key twice to enter Full Screen mode.Navigate mouse to the right side of screen to appear panels where Mini Bridge icon is located.
Press Mini Bridge icon to expand and activate this plug-in.
