In 2023, Adobe Camera Raw’s user interface changed significantly. This can make it hard to follow along with tutorials recorded before the updates. Here are a few tips and tricks that may help you find moved tools and options.
How do you open multiple images simultaneously in Adobe Camera Raw (2023)?
The secret is you need to select multiple images at the same time to open them in Film Strip view and see them at the same time. There are two easy ways to do this.
- Select all images from your Finder window, right-click, and choose Open With > Adobe Photoshop. This allows multiple images to open simultaneously in Adobe Raw in Film Strip mode.
- In Photoshop, select File > Open and then choose multiple raw image files from this prompt.
Where is the Filmstrip View icon?
In the footer of Camera Raw is the Filmstrip View icon (highlighted with the red box below).
Where is Lens Correction in the most recent Camera Raw?
Lens Correction is now under the Optics Tab. You can use the checkbox for “Use profile corrections.”
Where do I find the Adjustment Brush or Gradient Tool in Adobe Camera Raw?
Camera Raw’s adjustment brush is no longer in the top toolbar. It is now accessed by using the Masking Tool. The Masking icon is positioned below the Healing Bandaid icon and above the Red Eye icon. Note that the Masking icon has a small triangle in the bottom right, showing that more tools can be accessed from this tool.
Click M to open the Masking Panel.
You can also access Masking by clicking M on your keyboard. This will bring up a prompt window. Click the blue circle with a plus icon to “Create New Mask.” The Brush tool is an option for creating a new mask, and so is the Liner Gradient tool.
