Adobe Camera Raw Bad Usability

  • Updated 3 weeks ago
With the recente ACR update, things went really bad for the desktop user.
FThe vertical Filmstrip switched to a horizontal one, which uses almost half of the screen (precious area). This is ok in LR to select photos, etc, but no to EDIT!
As before (vertical strip) is great, as on a Widescreen wh have enough vertical lateral area, but NOT on the botton of the screen. This change really makes no sense.

And then we crop...and the image keeps small and is not zoomed automatically to fill the screen (and I could not find how to do it by default).

I have asked support to roll back, as this seems to make us go away from ACR for Pro grade cameras and move to LR.

Please do not destroy a great product.

I really hope that Adobe can tell via Creative Cloud how many people are reverting.

I know. That is why I said "I do not use auto update."   - No I do no assume it, but they "might spot" it - and who knows they might even give us the features we had back.

I know.
And everyone else here who may decide to roll back ACR?

No I do no assume it, but they "might spot" it - and who knows they might even give us the features we had back.  
So you work for Adobe and you know they log how many people roll back Bridge (or download ACR) and that's attributed to people who don't like the new version of ACR.
If you have only imagined it, you haven't experienced it.

Well, I just hope someone does care enough about us to fix it.  It can be done, just needs Ps/Pr style moveable panels, so we can hide what we don't use,  an option to crop with the frame not the canvas, a toolbar like we had, and a proper set of keyboard shortcuts.

I agree with you Ash. Among other things, I'm a real estate photographer and Camera Raw was so efficient to get those photos edited and off to my clients. It takes me - at a minimum - twice as long to edit now.  (Which for a real estate photographer is leaving $ on the table.) 

Yes! Moveable panels! That would be so helpful. Please let us arrange our workspace the way it works best for our individual workflow styles.  The crop option you suggested: that's a no-brainer as well.  I assume, (no, I don't work for Adobe and I don't know for sure
