Welcome to CameraBag, a modern, award-winning photo app with a fresh approach to editing your pictures.
At the heart of CameraBag is our proprietary Analog Engine, which applies every adjustment you make using non-destructive 32-bits-per-component accuracy, all at blazing speeds. What that means for you is smoother tones and a more interactive workflow, no matter how many tweaks you make to your images (especially when working with RAW photos).
CameraBag’s innovative tile-based workflow lets you instantly see exactly what adjustments you’ve applied at any point, so you can easily tweak, re-order, layer, and nest them as needed. This workflow also lets you do things that are simply impossible in other photo editors, like layering multiple tone curves rather than trying to squeeze all levels adjustments into one complicated curve.
Start with CameraBag's large set of included filter presets, then go deeper by creating and sharing your own. You can even use any filter you make with CameraBag in our newest iPhone photo app, Fotograf.
--- 10 Things to Try in CameraBag ---
1) Use the curve-based color corrector to perfectly pull the orange-yellow cast out of indoor nighttime photos.
2) Layer multiple tone curves, one for shadows, one for midtones, and one for highlights. Layer as many as you like without losing image quality.
3) When using one of the curve-based tools, turn down the amount slider to make your edits have a lessened effect, allowing you to make more precise adjustments.
4) Create or load a filter with several adjustments, then select all the filter tiles and nest them with the right-click menu. Now you can adjust the amount slider on the nested tile to ease the filter in and out to the perfect amount.
5) Select the Filtered B+W tool and slide the Filter Hue slider to see just how many different black and white images you can create from a single photo.
6) Create a filter that adds a watermark, then batch process a folder of photos with it.
7) Create a filter from scratch or modify one of the included filters. Now press the + button on your keyboard to name it whatever you want and save it as your own new preset.
8) Load a photo from a folder that has several photos taken at the same time under similar lighting. Find or create a filter you like, then press the left and right keyboard keys to cycle through the photos in that same folder to see them all with your filter applied.
9) Press the Quicklook button at the top of the Presets tab to see thumbnails of your photo filtered with every filter in your library.
10) Create a filter in CameraBag and then load it into Fotograf (separate purchase required) using iTunes file sharing. Now you can use that filter directly with your iPhone from inside Fotograf.

Well worth it. Trust me, I’m a professional!
Tired of fumbling through actions or presets to enhance your pictures? I was. Sometimes professional imaging programs are like driving a Corvette to pick up the kids at school. CameraBag 2 is different because it almost entirely eliminates the learning curve when it comes to image enhancing (I say enhancing instead of editing because there are no cloning or image retouching tools here). True, it is a little overwhelming with it’s choices but it makes up for it with easy to see photo enhancements. WYSIWYG in it’s purest form. It’s quick and features thousands (or millions. I don’t know, math isn’t my thing) of visual combinations to give your photos a unique look. You can use the presets, tweak them, or make your own. If you want to give your photos a visual kick in the pants, this is your program. BUT where CameraBag2 stumbles a bit is in resizing and viewing. I personally like to zoom in and see the details but sadly you are sort of stuck with the default screen size. Basically no zooming in or out. It does have resizing tools but I found them lacking. These negatives are minor and did not affect my 5 star rating. I have been using CameraBag 2 for years and it keeps getting better.
Yes, I come from years of using Lightroom and Photoshop, but this app does a wonderful job on a smaller, simpler scale. You should consider it as either an adjunct to your current photo editing tools, OR as an easy-to-learn big step up from the most basic editors. I’m finding that Camera Bag’s quick response, and its smaller overhead/drain on any system, makes it a wonderful go-to app for quick touch-ups, and even more!
Too bad one user bought the app without trying it first. A generous trial period is offered by going to the company’s website! It only took me a couple of hours of trial before I was sold. And BTW, the price is $5 less here on the APP STORE than the price on the web site, so buy it here. (Hurry, before they realize they’re charging too little!!) ;-)
Quick, Effective, Easy to Use, Great Results
CameraBag is well-organized, easy to use, and powerful. The effects can be dramatic, but they can also be subtle. They are always high-quality. It’s light and fast, doing what I want with my photos simply and quickly (and beautifully).
It took me a bit to acclimate to the redesign, but I have all of my old filters/cameras/borders back in sections in the Presets tab, and the new organization is growing on me. I like the cleanliness of all of the filters being in one tab, and all of the adjustments in the other tab. Also, I LOVE being able to make folders in the Presets folder in Finder and have them show up as sections in the Presets tab—I can finally organize and group my filters without relying on creative naming strategies.
