My letter to Adobe and anyone else who dislikes the Adobe Camera RAW 12.3 update

I have been a long time Adobe fan. I have been a professional photographer and photojournalist for many years and I currently own a graphic design company. As a long-time Cloud subscriber, I have always been okay with the changes and updates Adobe has put in place. However, the latest Camera RAW update is absolutely terrible. The drop-down tabs require me to scroll down thus slowing my workflow, the layout is counterintuitive, everything is renamed, moved and regrouped, and it looks like a cheap 1980's Atari video game. I, my colleagues, and my staff, absolutely hate it. I have always relied on Adobe Bridge, RAW, and Photoshop for my workflow as I never liked Lightroom. I understand the new RAW is more like Lightroom, but I never liked Lightroom. I have to say, for the first time in 10 years, I am considering dropping the Adobe Cloud from all my business and personal computers. Please Adobe, I beg you, for the love of God, give the old RAW UI back to us.

I too dislike LR. However, after using the new UI for a while, I found easier and faster to use. For the issue of scrolling down so much set the tab expansion in the preferences to single. That drove me nuts also. The curves are much improved in that you don't have to use dropdown boxes to change the channels. You can set the localized tools to either be zeroed of remember the last settings - check box at the bottom of the panel. 

I think that after you used it for a bit, you will find it better than the old UI.

Genau so geht es mir! Ich habe mich einen Vormittag lang mit dem neuen RAW Converter gequält und ebenfalls über eine andere Software nachgedacht. Jetzt habe ich die neueste Photoshop Version durch eine ältere ersetzt und eine ältere Version vom RAW Converter heruntergeladen und installiert.

Den neuen RAW Converter finde ich unübersichtlich und unpraktisch, die Nähe zu Lightroom ist für mich absolut uninteressant.

How do we uninstall these updates? I have lost use of Camera Raw entirely and need to get on with things.

Same here. On top of the uncomfortable UI, cropping is working extremly slow now. I want to downgrade back to 12.2. Where can i download v12.2 from?
