Let's take a very brief look at the Adobe Camera Raw interface. The top is the toolbar. And if I've set my preferences in Photoshop or in Bridge to show tooltips, you can see when I hold my cursor over one of the icons, the name of the tool appears. The keyboard commands or shortcut also appears in parenthesis. Which is useful because I can't remember all these keyboard commands.
This trashcan will only appear if you have multiple images open in Camera Raw. And you can open multiple images and what you do they appear here on the left in the film strip. To the right is the Histogram, which is a graphical representation of the tonal values of the open or selected image. And below the Histogram, RGB values that appear when I hold my cursor over the Preview Display window, which is in the middle here, showing the active image.
To the right, underneath the Histogram, this is EXIF data that's generated by the digital camera used to shoot the photograph. Very useful information in my opinion. Down here are more controls over your image processing. Each time you click on one of the tabs, a new set of options will appear underneath the tab, as you can see here. Down here, if I click on this link, I open up the Workflow options.
And these are very important options that you'll need to consider and set before you start working on an image. This has been a very brief overview of the interface for Adobe Camera Raw.
