How can you get a previous version of  Camera RAW? I am having problems with the latest version of photoshop and need to go back to the previous version but when I uninstall the current version and install the previous version it brings in the latest version of camera raw and that one doesn't work. The previous one worked just fine.

You should be able to download a previous version from this link. Just installing the old version should overwrite the new version. If you install an update to PS, it will overwrite the old version though.

What issues are you having with Camera Raw?

Had to go back and install the older version of Photoshop, Bridge, and ACR so I could continue editing photos.  Adobe WAS always the gold standard.

I went back to the older version as well because Camera raw would freeze up, I couldn't use the up and down arrow keys sometimes. Overall cumbersome.

in a word...CROP TOOL.  it just doesn't work the way it did (which was flawless btw).  I spent years editing with Camera raw versions up to 12.1 without issue (just basic stuff...LIKE CROPPING).  Then, with one swing of the axe Adobe screwed up what wasn't broken.    Am I whinning?...maybe, but PS perple have skill our workflow requires using no concious thought to perform. The new Camera Raw violates our learned skills.  You guys trashed CROPPING procedure (maybe other things also) for something "better".   You want to put the tools on the right side, FINE, do it.  We know the symbols, we see them, not a relearn issue.  I limit my complaint to TOOL PREFORMANCE here.

 

So here I am, in the immortal words of Don Henley "trying to find the passage back to the place I was before".  Not fun.  I will be just fine stuck with 12.1 if I can find out how to get it back.

 

Why must you "fix" what is not broken rendering obsolete our hard learned skills?  New ways require NEW skills be learned. I am not against learning new things but CROPPING is NOT NEW.  You FORCE us to stop, regroup and relearn a thing we already know VERY well.  How would YOU feel if I rearranged the keys on YOUR piano when you have a concert to play this afternoon?  We need to WORK, we don't need to spend a day figuring out a new way to do what we already KNOW how to do with speedy efficiency.

Similarly, it appears that they have completely gotten rid of the perspective correction tool. I've only used this new version, 12.4, since yesterday ... who knows what else I'll find. I did find that they removed the possibility to make default a profile other than Color (which pumps up saturation and contrast) or Monochrome. If I wanted. Adobe seems to think I want them to edit my files. (where are emojis? Insert fuming head here.)

 

I think about the teams of engineers and UI/UX workers at Adobe ... they must deperate for something to do, some change to the software that they can own, regardless of whether it's actually beneficial to users.

"it appears that they have completely gotten rid of the perspective correction tool."

 

https://blogs.adobe.com/jkost/2020/06/acrv12-3.html

The Optics Panel — The Lens Correction Panel has been renamed to Optics. Use the progressive disclosure triangle to view advanced Profile Correction options. Defringe is now available regardless of whether Profile or Manual is selected (use the progressive disclosure triangle to view advanced Defringe options).

The Geometry Panel — The Transform tool has been relocated to the Geometry Panel where you’ll find all of the Auto Upright, Guided Upright, and Manual Transformation controls.

It's quite simple. Use the following link, but replace 11_4_1_win with the desired version, for example 11_3_win:

You can revert to the previous version of Camera Raw 12.2.1: https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/camera-raw-plug-in-installer.html#12_x

Also downgrade Bridge to 10.0.4 and the madness that is biased towards lightroom users has gone and harmony is restored

Thank you so much! I'm not trying to be the guy that just hates everything new so I honestly gave this new one a shot figuring that I just needed to get used to it. 

And then I needed to fix geometry and crop. 

Adobe engineers, if you read this, please go back to the prior way those tools worked. They were seamless and worked well. The new crop tool brings my high end editing computer to a grinding halt when I try to move the crop area around. Something's not right.

I agree with you; ACR is looking more like a toy than a professional tool. I have a pretty powerful PC and an up to date 4Gb GPU but whenever I move the crop area there's always a lag before it moves and suddenly catches up to the cursor. The PS crop tool is super-smooth with no lag at all.

 

Also, when I click on any of the group names to expand them (Basic, Curve, Detail, etc.) there's 5 second lag before it opens or closes. Note that it only does that when PS is opening a new image, not when used via the Filter menu.

Yes, emulating LR in ACR was a bad move! It has broken the functionality of ACR to the max. We don't need looks. We need performance. Otherwise, our productivity goes for a toss.
