"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.

Announcing Pixelmash Ghouls, a game project made entirely with Pixelmash art
Pixel Art / May 28th, 2019 6:44 pm


We've decided to start up a fun game project to work on as we develop Pixelmash (nevercenter.com/pixelmash), our pixel art/animation tool. Pixelmash Ghouls is a simple side-scrolling game, inspired by one of our favorite series of the retro era. All the art assets for Ghouls will be made in Pixelmash, and we'll release all the asset files for anyone to play with and modify, and submit their own art if they desire. At the moment we're not aiming to make a full releasable game; our main goal is to develop and refine Pixelmash (and to help get the word out about it). We find that working on a real project brings out all sorts of ideas to make the tool better. Project updates may be a little irregular as this is not our primary focus, but we'll be sure to post new assets as they become available.

Let me emphasize something here: WE ARE NOT ARTISTS. We're developers, so our art may be a little on the programmer-y side. But that's also part of the point: we have a lot of fun using Pixelmash, and we think others of all skill levels will too.

As you can see in the video above, we've already made some good progress. We've created a simple platformer in Unity with some custom physics in order to easily run our character around on curved surfaces (getting the movement right while standing on the turtle was trickier than it looks), with jumping and double-jumps. We've got in some projectiles which aren't shown yet. We've added a few key animated art assets made in Pixelmash, and for the moment we've made it so levels loop indefinitely.

We'll start posting assets, dev updates, and maybe a playable build soon!

Again, we're not intending this to be a full released game, just a fun side project for people to play with. If you want to follow along or contribute, you can subscribe/follow in all the usual places.
