Go to Bridge CS4, choose your images, then go to OUTPUT and under the Template chooser you have two contact sheet choices.

Is this what you are looking for?

The old plug-in was not installed by default because it's no longer a fully supported feature (it's been deprecated as in superseded by new functionality in Bridge). It is, however, still available on the main disk (or disk image) in the "Goodies" folder. Additional plug-ins are also available as well as scripts you can load into Bridge to still call them from Bridge.

Thanks, that is exactly what I was looking for.

I use the contact sheet function in bridge as part of my workflow for creating cd covers for clients.  It was a major shock for me to find it missing in cs4.

It took me a few minutes to find the bits of info needed to add this feature back into CS4 ... so I thought it might be nice to spell it out for others.  This is the solution that is going round the web at the moment ... it worked for me.  

If you don't have the installation cd the files are also available here ...

Mac:   http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/pro...tform=Macintosh

I hope this is useful.

Cheers

Jeremy

The Bridge CS4 Output Module, just got a new facelift with the latest (large) Adobe update.
You may find that it has really improved, alot.  It is definitely worth checking out.
The PDF, with headers and footers, is a fantastic improvement over the old Picture Package.

**before this update, I don't think that Output was really very appealing.

Jeremy, Thanks so much for posting the solution. This just saved me a lot of time searching for the missing contact sheets and I have to get some CD's done today with little contact sheets in the CD insert for the client. I can't believe they just left this out. Glad there are people out there that needed this and took the time to post.  Cheers!

has anyone found a way to make bridge or CS4 contact sheet function make verticals the same size as landscape images in a contact?
in a mixed bag of images, the verticals seem to pop up at 50% bigger than the horizontals, and look out of wack.

ps - I prefer Contact Sheet 2 over Bridge Output too.
pps - it doesn't appear in the 64bit version, only in 32bit

Many Thanks for that tip, using the output route in Bridge was tedious and crude or pants as they say.  

Regards

You may not like this answer but...

Click on filter, select all portrait images (under the orientation tab), click rotate, make contact sheet.

It's what I've had to resort to.

There is no bridge 64 bit as yet (when oh when, I'll buy CS5 just for that!). If you're only seeing it in CS4 32 bit then you haven't installed it in both the 64 and 32 bit folders.

You can also click the check box for "rotate for best fit". It'll do the rotating as it goes, so you don't have to switch them back and forth in Bridge. If you would prefer the vertials to remain in their proper orientation, you can set up your contact sheet as a square, and specify the same number of rows as columns. It will alot the same amount of space for verticals as horizontals, so they will be the same size.
