Nevercenter has released CameraBag 2 for Mac and PC. It’s an update of the desktop photo app.

Redesigned from the ground up, CameraBag 2’s new Analog Engine pairs a full suite of photographic tools with the filters and vintage simulations of previous versions. According to Nevercenter President Tom Plewe, the key innovation in version 2 is a straightforward approach to layering, rearranging, and tweaking all of these effects in realtime. CameraBag 2 ships with 100-plus, adjustable filters and 25-plus professional controls

With CameraBag 2, you don’t have to know what look you want to get started, Plewe says. It lets you see all the possibilities at once: old-school instant film or modern high-contrast portrait, subtle color adjustment or complete artistic overhaul. You can choose from side-by-side comparisons with the fullscreen Quicklooks, or get large, instant previews on mouseover.

Once you’ve chosen a filter, its components are all in the tray to tweak and adjust non-destructively with large, interactive sliders. The new CameraBag features a suite of photographic tools, from simple exposure and cropping to advanced vignetting, color correction, and curves.

CameraBag 2 is available for the Mac and PC. A single cross-platform license is normally available at for US$29; however, the limited time, launch sale price is $24. Also, a Mac-only version is available via the Mac App Store for $24 (the launch sale price is $19). A free, fully functional, 30-day demo at the Nevercenter web site.
