Best New Features in Camera RAW 12.3 For Photographers

Best New Features in Camera RAW 12.3 For Photographers

In June 2020, Adobe made a significant upgrade to both Adobe Camera RAW 12.3 and Adobe Lightroom Classic. Most of the updates were long overdue. Although there were many changes, I will only be focusing on the upgrades that concern nature photographers. To upgrade, go to your Creative Cloud app and go the page for updates. All updates can always be found on this page. Make sure to upgrade Adobe Photoshop to 21.2. If you don’t see anything showing the update tab, make sure to sign out and sign back in. The overall engine of Camera RAW, as with most significant updates, has got a speed increase. Access to tools and edits is much faster. The speed upgrade is noticeable when using local adjustment tools, and when merging HDR and stitching panoramic images. In past versions with blending and stitching images, the process could be very long. There is now a filmstrip view at the bottom of the page that has the option to be viewed horizontally or vertically. This new filmstrip view can be a nice feature depending on the amount of screen size available to you when editing. The option to choose the full-screen layout is located in the top right corner.
