    Hi, I currently only use Dreamweaver (very occasionally), Photoshop, and Lightroom in my workflow. I noticed there's alot of CS3 programs/folders that I never touch in my Applications folder, such as Bridge, Device Central, and Stock Photo Viewer. Are those programs neccesary? Would it be safe to delete them? What would be the best way to do it, if I can? Also, is Device Central the program that recognizes my Canon XT Rebel when I plug it in? If so, I'll keep it. :D

    Device Central is an app to help design graphics for phones, pdas, etc....

    So removing those folders will not break my CS3 installation?

    DON'T REMOVE ANYTHING YOURSELF IN PHOTOSHOP CS3 OR ANY CS3 SOFTWARE!

    Sorry for shouting... don't do it. You have to install the software CD and remove individual apps that way... OR... find the "Remove Adobe ______ CS3" app and uninstall the app the proper way. Don't just delete it.

    Adobe CS and all newer versions are very tightly integrated and share files, plugins, and App Support from other applications and folders. So deleting one the wrong way will most likely cause minute damage to an another app. Don't delete Bridge, or any other Apps that Photoshop and other apps use for connecting to each other... don't delete anything from the app support folder in the library.
