    Well, allow me to be the first one here So much fun. One big workflow bump though - it doesn't understand ProPhoto RGB.

    Great ideas! The crop lines while straightening are coming in the next update. Copy and paste tiles is on the list and will show up soon as well. We'll look into the thing with raw files not being able to be set to open by default with CameraBag. Noise reduction is the main one we don't have on the docket, since most cameras these days have pretty advanced algorithms for that built in, and I'm not sure we can do better than them on that.

    Hi, Louis. CameraBag 2 is oriented toward adjusting the entire image. It doesn't include localized adjustments such as red-eye -- although if you don't have any other red in the picture, the Hue Brightness adjustment could be used to darken all reds, and/or Hue Saturation to removed the color from all reds. CameraBag 2 also doesn't do printing; you need to save the picture into a separate file and print that file from some other tool. Cropping is part of the Crop/Straighten tool -- it's the first one in the Adjustments tab. It's a bit different from the other CameraBag tools in that you have to click the Apply button when you've got the crop set up the way you want. For resizing a single image, you can just set the desired size in the "Save" dialog. If you're batch-processing an entire folder full of images that are different sizes, you might find the Exact Size and Maximum Size tools -- the last ones in the Adjustments tab -- to be helpful. The Maximum Size tool won't expand images beyond their original size the way the Exact Size tool will.

    Can't wait for the Windows version. Been out all day with my camera and some high-speed videos on the stormy sea... I like to try that in CameraBag Cinema.

    Hi everyone! Just wanted to let you know about the CameraBag & Fotograf Updates newsletter, which you can sign up for at http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/newsletter/ and never miss a beat. We make a point to try to put in good content and not over-send. For example, we recently sent out a user survey to the list to get feedback on who is using CameraBag and what directions they would like the software to go in. We've also sent out updates when new Fotograf filters are available for download, or when we have a new release or update for CameraBag Photo, CameraBag Cinema, or Fotograf. Question for you here on the forum: what kind of content would YOU like to hear about through the newsletter?

    Hello everyone! Today we're very happy to announce the release of CameraBag Cinema, our brand new tool for 4K+ video filtering, color correction, and film emulation for Mac! Designed for professionals and indie filmmakers alike, CameraBag Cinema is a powerful stand-alone package which can be used alongside Final Cut Pro, Premier, or any other NLE. It's built around the same core principles and technology of our original photos-only CameraBag, which was chosen by Apple as runner-up for Mac App Of The Year. Watch the trailer at http://nevercenter.com/camerabag-cinema-trailer. To celebrate the launch, you can get CameraBag Cinema on sale for 40% off for a limited time from our website or the Mac App Store (use promo code LAUNCH40 if purchasing from our website). http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/cinema/ https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/camerabag-cinema/id1101039207 CameraBag Cinema's two core tenets are its advanced color adjustment and grading tools, and the fully-customizable presets which are built out of those core tools (including dozens of film stock emulations). Its intuitive interface is designed around easily creating, re-using, and exporting these filters, allowing artists to work quickly and develop their own library of signature styles. Filmmakers and videographers will appreciate the ease of importing and exporting LUTs, working with REDCODE R3D files, support for 4K+ resolution videos, advanced scopes and histograms, and much more. A free 30-day trial download is available from our website at http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/cinema/. Key Features • Advanced curve-based color and light adjustments found nowhere else • Over 200 carefully-crafted and fully-adjustable presets to start • Save any set of adjustments as a preset for later use • Dozens of motion and still film stock emulations • Dozens of useful preset color grading setups • 32-bits-per-channel Analog Engine offers unparalleled image quality • Innovative scopes and histograms • Easily use alongside Final Cut, Premier, or any other NLE • 3D LUT import/export • Supports 4K+ RED R3D files natively • Tile-based adjustments show everything affecting the footage in a single look • Batch processing • Modeled film grain • Award-winning photo processing (including RAW support) CameraBag vs CameraBag Cinema The original photos-only CameraBag desktop software has been highly reviewed by critics and is a hit with users for its innovative and powerful take on photo filtering. CameraBag Cinema is built on the same core: it works on photos and includes everything in the photos-only CameraBag, but also adds powerful new tools for video processing. Both applications will benefit and grow as Nevercenter develops its core image technology.

    I currently use Fotograf as my main editing app on my iPhone and love being able to use it non-destructively through the Photos extension. This is a much better workflow than taking a photo, editing in an external app, saving a separate copy of it, etc. I’d purchase CameraBag in a heartbeat if I could do the same thing on my Mac, and would love syncing filters between CameraBag and Fotograf!

    I made a quick youtube video showing the layers of a quick vintage filter I made for some old-school muppet footage. I've also attached the CameraBag filter file, as well as a 3D LUT (which includes everything but the film grain). Here's the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rDzAVFpfsKQ&feature=youtu.be Muppet Vintage.cube Muppet Vintage.cbf

    It's probably something on my windows then, but i did some messing around and happens that i figured out how to open files again. Here's what i did if someone run into this too. 1 - Go to program folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\CameraBag 2); 2 - Right click on "CameraBag2.exe" and then choose "Troubleshooting Compatibility"; 3 - On the next window, choose "Troubleshoot Program" option. 4 - Check "The program worked in earlier versions of Windows..." and "The Program works but doesn't display correctly", and then Next; 5 - Choose "Windows 8" and then Next. 6 - Choose "Error message saying the program needs to run in 256 colors or 8-bit color mode", then next; 7 - Click on "Test Settings" and see if the program works... Worked for me! 8 - If it worked (i hope), go back to the troubleshoot windows and click Next, then choose "Yes, save these setting for this program". The window to open files change then, but it finally works!

    Hi there, I'm a new user to CameraBag2 and I have to say I simply love it. It does exactly what I'm looking for. I love the QuickLook option and thought I'd throw out a suggestion that would make saving photos with CameraBag2 an easier and quicker process. For me, I like to save each photo a number of different times with a number of different filters. Right now I have to do that save - and naming each file I save - manually. However, if you added a sort of "Quick Save" option for each thumbnail in the QuickLook page, that would save users an incredible amount of time. What I would love to see is a quick save option for each thumbnail, with each filter having a suffix (of my choosing) simply added to the end of my existing photo name. It could be that simple. So (in the Quick Look layout) every time I want to save a photo with a different filter I simple right click the thumbnail, choose "quicksave", and the application adds a suffix to my existing photo name, and saves it to the folder I set it to save to. A couple of clicks, and the save is complete, then I'm off to save that same photo with another filter... and so on and so forth. I LOVE this application and look forward to using it more! Thanks YahYah

    My (inexpert) opinion: from a usage point of view, the big difference is that the gamma curve is referenced to a horizontal line rather than a 45-degree diagonal. That doesn't sound like a big deal, but it makes it a bit easier to visualize what the effect is. More subtle, but perhaps more significant, the result is more natural. The variation in the adjustment is smoother, and it's impossible to achieve negative contrast, where a brighter input gives a darker output. Of course, if you want negative contrast -- for example, to emulate solarization -- the gamma curve won't get you there. For those wilder artistic effects, you'll need the tone curve. And, obviously, there are a number of variations on the tone curves, including color (R, G, B Curves and Component Curve), while the gamma curve is strictly brightness. Which is in keeping with the gamma curve's function as a practical, rather than artistic, control.

    Hm, yeah, we need to investigate why it's not showing up by default on the "Open With..." dialogue for RAW files--we're looking into that.

    This would indeed be neat, but for now it might be a little bit outside the scope of CameraBag. I've definitely wanted something like this myself while working with photos. Thanks for the request!

    An auto - exposure tile / button with a tolerance adjustment, This means I can control how much automatic adjustment is applied to a batch of images.

    The difference between the sharpen you see in CameraBag and the sharpen you see in your saved-out image is actually due to your computer's display and how it handles zoomed-in and zoomed-out images. When your computer makes an image smaller on screen than it actually is in pixel size, it has to decide how it shows the whole picture using fewer pixels. It compresses the image to display it, and displays often use a smoothing algorithm so everything looks nice; in this case, it sounds like the smoothing algorithm when the image is displayed is canceling out CameraBag's sharpening, and so the image *appears* to have less sharpen when it's viewed at smaller than 100%. This could vary app-to-app, which is why an image's sharpness might look one way in CameraBag and another way when you save it out. The best thing to do is to view images at 100% zoom to see the sharpness level. If you use the Zoom feature in CameraBag (scroll up), you can see exactly how much sharpening is happening on your photo while editing. Similarly, if you are opening the image in Preview (or another photo-viewing app), zoom in all the way to see the sharpening that was added to your photo. Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the feedback! We would LOVE to have more fully-featured access through Extensions or drag-and-drop ability between Photos and CameraBag (like with Aperture/iPhoto and CameraBag previously); unfortunately, this is related to the new restrictions Apple puts on apps and how they can interact with each other. Our hands are tied until they make some changes on their end. We'd love for CameraBag users to write Apple and ask them to allow Photos to interact with external photo apps like could be done in iPhoto--rather than insisting apps only interact with Photos through their new Extensions setup. This would allow US to make CameraBag play well with Photos (drag and drop) just like it used to play with iPhoto, which we would happily do if they allowed it. As people have mentioned, it's not hard to do programmatically; it's just Apple's rules preventing us from doing it. If you'd be up for giving Apple feedback on this, you can do it via http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html

    oh and while we're at it - I understand that it's not possible to import filters to the photos extensions. if that's the case how about adding a second extension for the old filters from previous versions of camera bag. Heck even an extension only pack (or maybe two: one for the current (awesome) subtle filters and one for the (more extreme) old filters) without the actual app would be cool for some people.

    At the very least all the "basics" adjustments. But what would really rock would be a possibilty to stack any adjustment or adjustments on a lightroom style brush (not the "lasso style" selection, but a mask type brush), in the way nested tiles work. Graduated filters would be a nice touch, too :-)

    Thanks It's basically Vintage 06 preset with minor adjustments and grain and blure turned off. There are some local adjustments made both before and after CameraBag in Lightroom and Photoshop. I use Lightroom/Photoshop combo extensively, with loads of postprocessing - this is where 16bit ProPhoto workspace really does the trick.

    I've happily purchased Camerabag for Mac and would love to have it act as an extension of Photos. My current workflow (export original, load in Camerabag, edit, export, re-import into Photos) is very clunky and an extension would really streamline things.

    Here's a quick demo I made using footage from a friend's wedding, filtered in the CameraBag Cinema beta. Shot on a Canon 5D mkII using natural light, 24fps, I think I was using one of those 70-200mm L series lenses. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLJSR-86Hh8&feature=youtu.be
