  1. All Mac versions of CameraBag have now been updated to v3.0.21 (this is a compatibility update only, which is why Windows remains at v3.0.2). A free update for all CameraBag 3.x license holders, you should download your update the same way you originally purchased CameraBag: via the Mac App Store or via the Nevercenter website.

    This update resolves video processing issues with CameraBag Cinema on High Sierra, updates splash screens for Retina displays, and fixes a bug that caused a crash when attempting to open photos from Finder or the Photos app in MacOS High Sierra.

    With the update to High Sierra, Apple has (finally) re-enabled direct interactions between their Photos app and external photo editors. Simply right-click on a photo in the Photos app, choose "Edit With" from the menu, then select your version of CameraBag!


  2. Local adjustments are definitely something we bring up regularly in our discussion of development and the directions to go in. There are some functionality/interface questions to solve with this whole new "kind" of adjustment and discussions on implementation are mostly what have been holding us back--we definitely recognize the value in having local adjustments to go along with the global ones. We have been doing some back-end testing and it's looking more and more like this is a direction we could go in.

    Thanks for your feedback! Hearing what CameraBag users want really does help us decide what is added and how the software develops--we want it to be the best tool it can be.

  3. Sorry we missed your reply for so long!

    It sounds like the problem is related to Steam security--in that they set the system to confirm you want to 1) launch Steam and 2) run a game and 3) include a specific file as part of that process... before just doing that (unusual-for-Steam-games) task automatically. Although opening a photo in CameraBag wouldn't be a security issue, it is possible that opening some malicious file on your computer in a different "game" that was intended to cause harm could cause unexpected behavior on a computer; our guess is that Valve has this prompt set up as part of Steam to ensure that you didn't accidentally click on something. The confusion here is that Steam is actually starting up and then running CameraBag, rather than CameraBag running on its own, so this prompt doesn't come from CameraBag 3 Photo, but instead comes from the Steam app engine.

    This security check may have been included with an update to Steam itself--does CameraBag 2 still open JPGs without the popup or is this now also an issue with CameraBag 2?

    We'll see if there is anything we can do on our end, but since the message is actually coming from Steam, you may want to contact them and see if they can tell you how to disable it on their system. (Sorry we aren't able to offer more of a fix immediately from our end!)


  4. The Luminance Mask tile in CameraBag can be placed to the left of any adjustment tile to mask it so that its adjustments will apply to pixels with varying strength depending on their brightness levels.

    What are your thoughts? We'd love to hear your questions, comments, suggestions, and other feedback in the thread below.

  5. Use the curve-based HSV Mask tool for precision masking around hue, saturation and brightness ("value"). This video will show you how it works and also explain how to use one mask across multiple adjustment tiles.

    (For a simpler masking tool that automates most of this under the hood, check out Hue Mask - http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/forum/index.php?/topic/214-camerabag-adjustments-video-hue-mask-official-discussion-thread/)

    What are your thoughts? We'd love to hear your questions, comments, suggestions, and other feedback in the thread below.

  6. 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.
