    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.

    We're prepping a plugin that allows CameraBag Cinema to work as a plugin for Adobe Premiere Pro, take a look!

    Yes, that'd be great to correct GoPro Footage and Wide Angle Lenses.

    This article suggests that one part of getting a "cinematic" look to a still photo is to crop it to a wide ratio, then add window-box borders out to 16:9. This is very easy to do in CameraBag 2 or CameraBag Photo. Activate Crop/Straighten and select an Aspect of 2.39:1 (the last choice on the list). Straighten and adjust edge positions as appropriate. Click Apply (CB2) or Done (CB-P). From the Adjustments tab, add a Fill Border, and select Aspect Ratio of 1.85 and set the color to black (0,0,0). That's it. I've saved off the border created in step 2 as a personal preset. With CameraBag 2 but not CameraBag Photo, you can also save the crop as part of the preset. CB-P doesn't seem to like crops in presets, though, so I don't recommend doing that.

    Are you considering adding local adjustments to the software? I like the way global adjustments work in your software but since I do a lot of local adjustments (for dodging and burning) I rely more on other software programs for processing images. I would rely more on CameraBag if I could make local adjustments and if I could mask out parts of the global adjustments I make both with adjustments and presets.

    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!

    Hi Ray, Thanks for your continued support of CameraBag! It sounds like the login confusion is because the forum is on a different system from purchases--now that you have a login here you will continue to be able to have access to the forums. (Forum membership is separate from having a license because you can be a forum member without actually owning a CameraBag license.) BUT, to your note about a discount--Doug's right in that the initial upgrade offer is over, but I happen to know that the discount code from our recent PHOTO30 sale (30% off CameraBag Photo) is still active even though it's not listed, so you are welcome to use that to bring your price down to $20. Just go to purchase, and then enter in PHOTO30 in the promo code field and click "Apply".

    To my knowledge, there's no upgrade offer from CameraBag 2 to CameraBag Photo. When CameraBag Photo was first announced, there was a $29 upgrade offer. But that's the full price nowadays, so you're not missing anything. There have been occasional sales, so if you can't bring yourself to part with $29, maybe just waiting will help a bit.

    Happy New Year, friends. Here's an old CameraBag Desktop tool that can be used for -- among other things -- selective saturation. You know, those mostly-B&W pictures with only one color still showing. The Hue Saturation tool, or an HSV Mask applied to a Saturation tool, can also get you there, but I find that controlling the curves on those can be a bit challenging. In particular, adjusting how picky the color selection is requires (for me, at least) moving four separate control points on the curve. Also, adjusting the selected color can be a difficult when CameraBag insists on selecting a control point instead of the triangle for the hue control when I click. Not that everything's rainbows with this old Selective Saturation tool, at least when you want most of the picture to be B&W. You have to think backwards in that case, because what you're doing is desaturating the other colors. You need to select the opposite color from what you want to keep, and in order to narrow the kept color you need to widen the range of desaturated colors (and vice versa). Overall, this tool is simpler (and therefore less powerful) than Hue Saturation, and much simpler (and therefore much less powerful) than an HSV Mask applied to a Saturation tool. But for times when you don't need the power, why not keep things simple? By the way, I should mention yet one more -- even more complicated and even more powerful -- alternative that only applies when you want to fully desaturate some of the colors: an HSV Mask applied to a Filtered B&W tool. This is the most complicated combination for producing selective color photos, but I have to say that being able to adjust the B&W part of the image via the filtering is pretty darned nifty. A tip: the Chrominance Chart window (hotkey 5) can often help you nail the Color and Tolerance settings. Another tip: in the Color control, it doesn't much matter where the open circle (in the center area) is, as long as it isn't at one of the edges -- your main interest is the hue slider across the bottom. The CBF file is attached. The initial settings are from the Red Splash filter in CB 2.0. Here's what it contains. <filter version="4"> <mod name="Selective Saturation" version="1" enabled="1"> <var name="Color" type="color">171.000000 229.000000 223.000015 255.000000</var> <var name="Tolerance" type="float">80.191246</var> <var name="Saturation" type="float">0.000000</var> </mod> </filter> Adjustment Selective Sat.cbf

    I agree with Ddigital: a CameraBag Cinema plugin for FCPX would be very helpful to speed up the very time consuming post-production workflow.

    The first of the three masking tools currently in CameraBag, the Hue Mask tile can be placed to the left of any other adjustment tile to mask it so that its adjustments will apply only to specific hues. What are your thoughts? We'd love to hear your questions, comments, suggestions, and other feedback in the thread below. #29 in the CameraBag Adjustments series

    I am using the Win 10 OS latest version, not Steam. I solved the problem by giving the photo(s) a new name. I is probably the letter å, ä or ö, causingvthe trouble for me. Anyway, it is solved! And thank you for your great software. I love doing the filtrering thing in Camerabag! Henry

    Hey, I was looking at the chrominance chart and I still think that a more traditional vectorscope is easier to use (but that can just be me, failing to understand the chart). However something a lot more important is the skin-tone line which seems to be missing. Whenever you try to colour correct a picture (or video) the most important thing is to get the skin-tone's right. Another important thing on a vectorscope are the colour targets (these are especially important when using something like a Macbeth chart). Sincerely, Evert Provoost

    This seems to be some problem with "extended" characters in the folders and file names, and it might only happen with Steam. Your folder name is probably a problem. You might be able to get by just adding one ANSI character, such as a "1", to the folder name. See this forum thread: http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/forum/index.php?/topic/163-ongoing-bug-with-unicode-characters/

    Shift-arrow still works, but yeah, the left and right arrows alone don't do it any more. My guess is that was to prevent accidentally switching from one image to another while editing, but only the folks at NeverCenter know for sure. I'm retraining my fingers to hold the Shift key while scrolling among pictures, but sometimes they forget.

    Sure I'll send them. I did try removing all of my custom presets, and trashing the prefs, but it still happens. Very peculiar..

    Thanks for the feedback! With the release of CameraBag Photo v3, CameraBag 2 was removed from sale and we are not planning on doing any more updates to it. We will still keep the resources/downloads available for all CameraBag 2.x license holders (http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/photo/v_2), but unfortunately we will probably not be able to add in the pin button to v2.

    +1 for this request. Also, a simple lasso tool to use as mask would do wonders. Everytime I want to use the HUE Saturation for making an entire image greyscale but keep just one element red, I have to hit Photoshop first to desaturate only the areas I don't want affected by CameraBag.

    I just wanted to note that this would have been very difficult to do prior to CameraBag Photo. Being able to put both the processed Raw and the unprocessed JPEG into side by side tabs, with their own histograms, was crucial to being able to do this while retaining my sanity.

    I have just bought this software to grade my father's 8mm cine film that has been telecined to HD video for his 80th birthday that has not seen the light of day for over 50 years. The grading seems to work fine but every file that I save is un-openable in other software such as Media Composer, Pro Tools HDX, Media -Slave2, VLC or Mpegstreamclip. Very disappointed - I can't make his birthday deadline and have to give him un-graded and un-mixed raw footage :-( I saved the files as an MP4 - please see attached screenshots I hope I am just missing something simple here? thanks for anyone's help cheers Mike OSX 10.10.3, 32GB ram, NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 1024 MB

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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?

    Interesting idea, thanks! We will look into it.

    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

    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 :-)

    I agree with Greg. It is not possible to use CameraBag with Photos like how it used to work with Aperture anymore (drag and drop). Would be really great to have an extension!

    Hi everyone! Just a quick installer update--if you were having trouble (missing DLL errors) when trying to install CameraBag 2.7 on your Windows computer, we just updated the installer with something that should resolve the issue. The new installer is live from http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/desktop (click the Download button at the top of the page). This was an issue that just happened on a handful of Windows systems, so we really appreciate everyone who wrote in. Thanks especially to CameraBag user Grant for working with us to get us the detailed data we needed! *Note that this is NOT an app update, just an installer update that makes sure the files for these specific systems are installed--so if you already have v2.7.02, you already have the latest version.
