Review: CameraBag 2 Image Editing Software

Though there is still quite a bit of hype going around about Adobe Lightroom 4, it’s nice to know that there are other options available tailored to the styles of different editors. We previously went hands on with Nevercenter’s CameraBag 2 while it was in beta and have been testing the now fully released version of the software for quite a while and over many different shooting sessions.

In a nutshell, the software is perhaps what every enthusiast photographer that doesn’t want to spend a ton of time in the editing stage may want to get their hands on.

CameraBag 2 Comes Out of Beta; Essentially Lightroom with More Presets

Not long ago, we did a quick hands on review of the beta version of CameraBag 2. Today the company has announced that they are releasing the entire version. CameraBag 2 is a piece of software for Mac and PC that lets the user apply loads and loads of those amazing Instagram-like filters to their images (both RAW and JPEGs.) Additionally, it offers a totally different interface that Lightroom 3 and 4 do while still allowing the user to do quite a bit of the manipulations that those programs offer. It does all this while still remaining non-destructive in the editing process.

For the person that doesn’t want to take the plunge into Lightroom yet, you can surely consider CameraBag 2. However, don’t consider it a replacement for Lightroom or Photoshop.

CameraBag 2 is available now for Mac and PC. A single cross-platform license is available at www.nevercenter.com for $29 (launch sale price: $24), and a Mac-only version is available via the Mac App Store for $24 (launch sale price: $19). A free, fully-functional 30-day demo is included in the download from www.nevercenter.com, where more info, tutorials, and videos can also be found.

I’ve been using the final release for around a week now and will have a full review coming soon.
