Real photographers have a camera bag. Inside are all the gadgets and goodies photographers need to take better-than-average photos. Extra lenses. Lens cleaner. Light meter. And so on.
Camera bags of the past were a necessity for photographers. Today, all those goodies and much more show up in a modern, Mac-inspired CameraBag. It’s a digital tool set of photo enhancements that’s a must have for your Mac.
CameraBag 2 packs a punch of photographic styles, filters, effects, and tools to take an ordinary photo and turn it into a professional masterpiece.
The interface is somewhat simplistic, but granular controls and sliders abound.
All the basic tools are there, including exposure adjustments, cropping, color corrections, and more.
And the styles are visual. Select one you like, click and the filter is placed on your photo (non-destructive, of course).
CameraBag 2′s claim to fame is a the so-called Analog Engine which brings 32-bits per channel, multi-threaded image processing to your photos.
What that gives you are digital filters, effects, and tools which present a decidedly film-like look to your photos.
Select styles, adjustment tools, and controls from the right sidebar. Slider controls appear over the image and give you both slider and numeric control.
Negatives? A few. While the interface is a bit sophomoric at first, the number of variations in the tools is mind boggling, so you’ll spend plenty of time in trial and error mode. But it’s fun.
