"Lightroom-killer" CameraBag 2020 photo editor launches with new features and non-subscription pricing.

Nevercenter today launched CameraBag 2020, a major new update to the independent studio's standout, Apple-awarded photo/video editor for Mac and PC. It's the software's first full version update in over three years, and includes significant new features along with a new pricing model, which remains subscription-free. These updates position CameraBag even more strongly as an upstart Lightroom-killer in the photo editing space.

"There's a clear, growing annoyance among consumers with the subscription model for desktop software," said Tom Plewe, President of Nevercenter and lead developer of CameraBag. "The big companies may feel they can force it on their customers, but we're able to provide photographers with an incredible alternative."

CameraBag 2020 comes in two versions - CameraBag Pro 2020 for editing both photos and videos, and CameraBag Photo 2020 for editing photos only. This new release of CameraBag includes a much-requested spot heal tool, interactive white balance, advanced auto exposure, dozens of new tailored presets in several new collections, big speed improvements, and more. Additionally, CameraBag is moving away from fewer major releases (spaced further apart) to a continuous-release model.

While many first think of CameraBag as a Lightroom replacement, it has gained recognition on its own for its innovative design and features that are simply not available in Lightroom. CameraBag combines the benefits of quick-access presets and powerful adjustment tools in one simple and easy-to-use intuitive interface, where every adjustment applied to the image appears as a tile in a tray. Tiles can be easily rearranged and adjusted at any time, or saved as layerable, editable presets for later use. Another key feature that sets CameraBag apart from Lightroom is full video support (in CameraBag Pro), allowing videographers to use the exact same adjustments, presets, and tools on both photos and videos. CameraBag also features uniquely advanced tools available nowhere else, in addition to hundreds of high quality presets.

CameraBag 2020 is available now for $50 USD for CameraBag Pro, and $30 USD for CameraBag Photo, both at www.nevercenter.com/camerabag. A free trial is available. Pricing includes access to both the Mac and PC versions and a year of free updates to newer versions.

CameraBag 2020 is also coming soon to other store platforms, such as the Mac App Store, Steam, and Setapp, where pricing models may vary per platform capabilities.

Remastering of Glen Southern's Classic Silo Tutorial Videos!
News & Announcements / January 22nd, 2019 4:26 pm
Remastered Glen Southern Silo Tutorial Videos

We've had an ongoing #SiloFeatureRequest that isn't really a feature, but an ask to have the Glen Southern tutorial videos in higher quality.

Well, today's when it starts! We diligently searched our archives, found the original base recording files, and are recreating the set as high-res as we can go given the limitations on those original files. (Read: It's not perfect for 2019 standards, but it's MUCH improved! Think of it as a remastering of an old classic film.)

We're really excited to share these remade videos with you! Glen's Silo Fundamentals series is first, with the Minotaur (box modeling) and Alien (point-by-point modeling) to come next!

Check them out as they come out on our YouTube channel, or follow us on Twitter or Facebook to get notified as each one arrives!

Thanks as always for being part of this fantastic Silo community.

Best,
Nevercenter
