    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.

    I suspect most people are accustomed to being able to use an eyedropper tool on a neutral part of their picture to set white balance. CameraBag doesn't offer that, but with the new Pixel Inspector window of CameraBag Photo, you can get the same general result with a bit of work. Open the Pixel Inspector window ('I' key). Click on the neutral spot that you'd normally eyedropper. Zooming in might help you pick the pixel you want. Be sure that the pixel for that neutral spot has been added to the Recent Pixels list in the Pixel Inspector window. Now you'll need to choose which adjustment tool you want to use. If green/magenta tint isn't a problem: Add a Temperature tool. Watch the values of the selected neutral pixel in the Recent Pixels list as you adjust the slider on the Temperature tool. Try to get the first (red) and last (blue) values for that neutral pixel to match. The middle (green) value should be similar to the other two. Or, if green/magenta tint is a problem (steps 1-3 below are optional): Add a Saturation tool and set it to zero saturation. Remember what the pixel values are for the selected neutral pixel in the Recent Pixels list -- this will be your target value in step 6. Remove (or disable) the Saturation tool. Add a Color Balance tool. Watch the values of the selected neutral pixel in the Recent Pixels list as you adjust the sliders on the Color Balance tool. Adjust the sliders so that all three values (red, green, blue) for that neutral pixel match the target value, or each other if you skipped steps 1-3. In my (limited) experience, you may need to resort to entering numerical values for the slider settings in order to achieve sufficient precision. You could use other color adjustment tools like Color Wheels or Coloring, but Temperature and Color Balance probably cover most of the usual cases with the least complication. You might find that you need to be a bit pickier about which pixel you select than if you were using an eyedropper tool in another program, because this looks at only one pixel while eyedroppers often look at the average of a number of pixels in the area. You can select up to three separate pixels to watch at the same time, which might be useful under some circumstances. For example, maybe part of the image is in shade and part in sunlight, and you want to split the difference in the white balance.

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

    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, I think it would be helpful to have CA and distortion correction is CB. The difficulty in both is of course that these 'faults' aren't in the same degree across the frame. It would also be nice to make the degree of control wide enough so that we, instead of removing it, can also add these distortions (eg. to fake a fisheye lens). Sincerely, Evert Provoost

    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.

    You can re-download the presets from the Download page. Look for the line "CameraBag Photo v3.0 Default Presets" down toward the bottom. That's a ZIP file that contains all of the presets from 3.0 (but not from 3.0.1, at least not yet). B&W Essentials 08 is in there. Here's what's in it: <filter version="4"> <mod name="Tone Curve" version="1" enabled="1"> <var name="Amount" type="float">1.000000</var> <var name="Curve" type="curve">0.000000 0.000000 0.321739 0.065217 0.580435 0.600000 1.000000 1.000000 </var> <var name="Method" type="choice">Luminance</var> </mod> <mod name="Saturation" version="2" enabled="1"> <var name="Amount" type="float">0.000000</var> </mod> </filter>

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

    As advertised, version 3.0.1 has restored the ability to use unshifted arrow keys to navigate between photos in a folder. (Yay!)

    I would second this. The ability to do selection of a foreground shape and do a realistic lens blur on the background would be a great addition. Or at least do realistic lens blur for the tilt/vignetting effect but also permit it to affect the full image, and I can select the foreground shape and composite in another app as a workaround until maybe selection is added. See these videos for similar blur effects:

    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/

    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.

    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

    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!

    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?

    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 :-)

    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
