I have installed the new Camera Raw 12.3...
And now the GUI is really cluttered and an absolut step backwards!
This must be a Joke...
Please give us the Possibility to revert to the old GUI!
2. Zooming - works only in the style of Ligtroom. If I wanted to choose a lightroom, I would choose Lightroom. Traditional zoom does not work. The selection option in the preferences does not work.
3. Why is the automatic preset preview still available? It really slows down work. It serves nothing.
4. The tools at the top of Interface were more convenient. For example, the transition from cropping to image straightening was intuitive and fast. Now you need to open some cards ... In addition, there is plenty of undeveloped space at the top. You have placed all buttons and functions on the right. They are strangled like mice in the corner. It is not convenient to use. etc. etc ...
Adobe — why are you changing this? Why change something that works well for long time? Again ...
This absolutely is the worst update ever done by Adobe. Everything is crammed on the right side and the text is so small it's unreadable on a 17" laptop. I've been using Photoshop since CS2 but I simply can't use this version of ACR. Give us the option of reverting to the prior version. I can live without the few new features.
Camera Raw 12.3 update has to be the worst ACR update yet.
With no option to use the old-style layout that we are used to. As a full-time photographer time is money and I do not have the time to go through another learning curve, especially for no reason other than someone at Adobe, decided to change everything around in ACR. What makes this worse is that the new update has slowed down my workflow and made it a lot more difficult to see the tools on my 13" laptop when I am on location. This is because all the tools are now crammed into a small space making it very cluttered. This does not make any sense as there is still room where the tools used to be, so this has achieved nothing!
I have had to revert back to the old Camera Raw 11.4.1, just so I can get on with my job, which is completely ridiculous!
I hope Adobe can fix this soon.

As many have said here, if we wanted the Lightroom style, we'd use Lightroom. I've got the option to use LR but I don't as I really don't like the UI. Now, the software that I've grown to understand so well over the years has disappeared with no choice in the matter allowed.
I'm a professional photographer, working to a deadline, and have just opened my laptop to file a set of images and have absolutely no idea how to find anything on the software that my company pays a lot of money for.
I have no problem with it being an option but please PLEASE make it exactly that; an option.
Adobe this is a total joke.
Cropping in ACR 12.3 is practically unusable for me (i7, 16Gb, internal graphics). It used to be fine, ACR used to be fine and fast. Not anymore. It just downloaded 12.2.1.
Could someone help me. My PC has updated the Raw Camera to version 12.3 and I am not able to see the changes made only in the localized adjustments, for example only in the radial filter, or only in the brush separately as before. I'm only able to see the before and after of the basic adjustments and the others below where I click on the eye and the before and after with all the adjustments together by clicking on the icon that looks like a little window. How do I see this in this version? Help me please. Thanks.
I use a 5 x 7 crop format often and in the old version the crop format stayed at 5 x 7 aspect ratio unless I used something else. With the 12.3 update the aspect ratio is always at 2 x 4 / 4 x 6 and I have to click each and every time to get 5 x 7. I want to click less to get what I want done, done.
Cropping? Having to move the image around behind the crop frame was time consuming. That UI is not effective imo.
Like Alan Shadduck above my process was like a "well oiled machine" and the new UI was like working with a clunky, sputtering machine.
I've never felt the need to write and complain until the Camera Raw 12.3 update.
Similar issue- after adjusting the first of multiple images, if I select all, use either Option + S, or contextual menu to synchronize settings, it does not remember previously selected items properly.
And I guess I will just have to learn to look for More Image Settings all the way on the right, instead of say next in top of the Basic settings panel, where it would logically make sense to find it like before.
On the positive side, I do really like the ability to click
on the small “eye” next to each panel to see before and after for just that set of adjustments.
I would say Bridge is also a little quicker to launch, and slightly more responsive
when opening a bunch of images into Camera Raw.
Cropping... another mess. Selecting the crop tool reduces the size the image is displayed and after being cropped the image is not resized to fit the ACR window again like it was done in previous versions.
I simply don't get why Adobe would think that it's better to have two tools being very similar instead of two providing a different workflow for different needs. The number of (professional) photographers prefering the speed and UI simplicity of the "old" ACR should not be small.
PS and LR always pushing to the foreground when starting up, continuously obstucting working with other programs in the meantime, littering my computer with Adobe folders everywhere, even where completely out of place like My Documents for settings, to me is symbolic for Adobe's perception of itself and it's software - we are important, not the user.
After the latest Adobe Camera Raw, I hate the UI and can't change it to the old layout. Had to rolk back to old version Camera Raw.
Change to the interface very bad and there isn't an option to have new ACR with old, tried and tested layout.
Please bring back the proper UI/layout.
