Implemented

Camera Raw: Please include the same crop overlays (Golden Ratio, Golden Spiral, Triangle, Diagonal, Grid and Rule of Thirds) found in Photoshop and Lightroom

Please, PLEASE have the team add the SAME CROP OVERLAYS to the Bridge Camera RAW editor as are in both the Lightroom and the Photoshop Crop Overlays.It's very frustrating and seems to make no sense to leave this out of the camera RAW editor in Bridge.

When are additional cropping overlay tools going to be included in Bridge? (e.g.; Photoshop has the Rule of Thirds like Bridge, however it also includes additional cropping options such as Diagonal, Triangle, Golden Ratio, and the Golden Spiral.)

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Compositional Crop Overlays for ACR.

Adobe Camera RAW crop tool only has one compositional crop overlay grid which shows the rule of thirds guides. Lightroom Classic has several different options for crop overlay grids and it is possible to cycle between them by simply pressing the "O" key. It would be great if ACR had the same facility to superimpose several different grids and a spiral, and also have a means of cycling round between them.

(e.g.: Photoshop has the Rule of Thirds, in addition to Grid, Diagonal, Triangle, Golden Ratio and the Golden Spiral under the crop tool overlay options.)

I wonder if they think because we're likely to open in Photoshop so they can just ignore cropping for the most part and we'll use PS. I would, except that I open as a Smart Object and many plugins see the original layer when you try to run as a Smart Filter. So it really helps to get the crop right in Camera Raw whenever possible.

And then for all those who are done with editing in Camera Raw and don't even need Photoshop's tools. . . So it's not exactly a frivolous request.

Please, please, PLEASE give Bridge ACR the same crop overlays As LightRoom and Photoshop. It is incredible to me that you still have not. Why not?

Well, why isn't the whole ACR user interface updated? All the same functions of Develop but every button, slider and function is in a different place with a different visual look!

• Camera RAW still does not have the same crop overlays as both Photoshop and Lightroom (e.g., Golden Spiral, Triangle, etc.)

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled ACR crop overlay options.

The crop overlays in Photoshop (and Lightroom) are extremely useful to my workflow, and to the workflow of my consulting clients. If they are so important to have added them to both Lightroom and to Photoshop, why not also add them to ACR's crop tool? I can edit all my images so much more quickly in Bridge/ACR than in Lightroom, and I don't want to lose my non-destructive behavior by entering Photoshop (or creating Smart Objects in Photoshop).

5 years ago on this Forum, and again 3 years ago I asked, "Why can't ACR have the same crop/overlay options as LR and Photoshop?" May I request this again, please?

Please make the crop overlays in Bridge/ACR the SAME as what are available in Photoshop and Lightroom.

Yes I agree it seems pointless and frustrating  not to have it in ACR

Hallelujah! ADOBE finally added all these new overlays in Camera RAW 12.3!
Grab the Crop tool, then Right-Click (or Control-key click on a Mac) to see all the overlays!

the golden spiral seems to be inactive in my menu. Does anyone have the same issue?

I have the overlays in ACR through Bridge, but not through ACR through Photoshop. I do have the overlays in Photoshop.

> but not through ACR through Photoshop.

You're talking about using File> Open in PS and then choosing a Camera Raw file and not having any overlays? You're not thinking of the Camera Raw Filter, right?

I'm having no problem with all the overlays opening in Camera Raw either through Bridge or through File> Open from PS. But I'm on a Mac running Mojave. Shortcuts work. Right-click works. Other OSes may have their own problems.

Yes I am talking about the Camera Raw filter Cristen, sorry about that. I don't have the crop option or the crop overlays at all with Camera Raw filter through Photoshop. Am I meant to have? I've always done my cropping in Photoshop itself.

I have the latest Window OS

In the Camera Raw Filter, you lose the advantage of crop and rotate tools that you would have access to when working on RAW files, no?
