Adding PhotoshopNews RSS to Bridge Center

If you have the Adobe Creative Suite 2 Premium Edition, you can add RSS newsfeeds directly in the Adobe Bridge Center and read news stories right in Bridge. Note, this will ONLY work in the full Suite version, not the individual application versions of Bridge.

In the Favorites pane of the Suite Bridge is an item called Bridge Center. Think of it as the nerve center of the Bridge application itself.
