  1. Exciting news! Lightleak and an updated Zoom are both coming in the next update of CameraBag for Mac & PC (CameraBag Photo and CameraBag Cinema). You will now be able to zoom super far out and super far in (great for viewing/selecting individual pixel colors) PLUS use the much-loved Lightleak (originally from CameraBag 2, now updated and included in CameraBag 3).

    We wrote a bit more about it in a post on our developer blog: http://nevercenter.com/blog/index.php?pid=8

  2. Hi Yannick!

    Thanks for the update and sorry about the confusion--which filters are you looking for? We have all of the legacy v3.0 filters available at the bottom of http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/photo/download/#otherdls (look for "CameraBag Photo v3.0 Default Presets"), and we have all of the CameraBag 2 filters available at http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/photo/v_2/ (under "Legacy Styles").

    You can add any of these into your current installation of CameraBag v3 following the instructions here: 


    (Although it says CameraBag v2.7 the in-CameraBag process is the same for v3. Just ignore the website appearance.)

    Is this what you are looking for? If it is something else please let us know--we'd love to help!

  3. Hi! You can definitely do this. If you load a LUT into CameraBag you will see it at the bottom in the tray. Whatever is in the tray can be saved as one of your Presets (use "File > Save Filter to Presets..."). You can do this for any LUTs you'd like saved in your Presets (which will make them show up in Quicklook) -- each one that you save will be listed under "My Presets".

    Hope this helps! Please let us know if this is unclear. We've had a couple of questions in about it; we might go ahead and make a quick video showing how this is done.

  4. Sorry about any confusion! The download will ask for a registration code when you install it (because the same download can be fully unlocked to register the program on your system), but you can click the button on that same popup saying you would like to continue in trial mode to get the free trial. Does this help?

  5. Thanks for the kind words! To answer your questions:

    1) CameraBag Cinema can do video color grading, cropping, rotating, and so forth. If you think of a video as a series of photos, it can do to that series of photos the same things (and a few more) that CameraBag Photo can do to a single photo. We don't call it a full-scale video editor because there are a bunch of normal video-editor things it doesn't do--trimming video, joining video clips, editing/changing audio, etc. You will need an additional video editing program to do these things. What CameraBag Cinema DOES do, though, it does really well. So it's a great companion app allowing you to do those tasks more easily.

    2) The way to reduce an image file size without reducing the pixel size is to remove some of the detailed data with it. Commonly, this is referred to as compression/quality. And CameraBag can definitely help with that! If you go to File > Save As, you get a pop-up save dialogue. The width and height are the pixel dimensions of the image. Leave that alone. What you can adjust is the File Type (jpg/png/tiff) -- which are basically different ways of storing photo data, and they will have different file sizes (generally, jpg will likely be smaller than png, for example) -- and also the "Quality" (if you select JPG). We've worked hard to make the photos saved out of CameraBag still look excellent even when quality is lowered; you may find a large image file size drop if you change quality from, say, 100 to 95, while it visually looks just as good (and of course a perfectly preserved pixel size).

    Hope this helps!

  6. Hello!

    We're excited to announce that CameraBag Mobile just got an update on the App Store--this latest release doubles the number of filters, makes adjustments work per-filter, has been updated to support the iPhone X, and more.

    Get it FREE at:

    Thank you for all of your feedback! Keep it coming. :)

  7. Hi Everyone!

    A quick update: CameraBag Photo 3.x for Windows just got an update that should fix image loading errors that some users were experiencing (a common error message was "pFactory is null"), plus a fix for early-expiring trial periods.

    Free for all CameraBag Photo 3.x license holders, you can download this latest update from http://nevercenter.com/camerabag/photo/download

    Happy photo editing!

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. 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!)
