According to its developers, Nevercenter, CameraBag 2 has been rebuilt from the ground up and it shows. The interface is slick and simple with three main areas: the preview pane (where the image you’re working on sits), the bottom tray (where effects you’ve applied can be individually adjusted) and the side panel (where you can choose from a variety of effects or filters to apply).
Getting photos into the app is as easy as dragging them into the preview pane and CameraBag will accept JPEG, TIFF and even RAW format files. It would have been nice to see a few more options on the list, but the three basic formats that are available will cover most bases.
Editing in CameraBag doesn’t stop there either. Every style has a number of controllable parameters that appear in the form of sliders at the bottom of an image once it has been applied. The most useful here is the Remix slider which takes you through a variety of different variations
of the same style, and makes getting an individual feel for each photo easy.
Add to that the ability to apply and tweak multiple filters on the same image, batch process a whole folder of photos at the same time, advanced editing controls for colour correction and cropping, curve editing and a whole lot more, and you’ve got yourself an image editor that will surely find its way to the top of the Mac App Store charts in no time at all.
