Welcome once again to our Daily App Giveaway section of theappwhisperer.  We value you all so much we want to share our love of apps with you. That’s why we have created this section as each day we will be giving away free apps.

Today we have CameraBag 2 for Mac to giveaway, this app is worth $23.99/£16.99. You may recall our post yesterday where we mentioned you could win an Canon 5D Mark III worth $3499, well that promotion is being hosted by Never Center the developers of CameraBag 2. You need to use CameraBag 2 to enter the competition so this giveaway will help you out.

CameraBag 2 is a desktop photo app with a whole new approach to photos. Redesigned from the ground up, CameraBag 2’s Analog Engine pairs a full suite of photographic tools with the high quality filters and vintage simulations the series is already known for. Its key innovation is a stunningly straightforward approach to layering, rearranging, and endlessly tweaking all of these effects in realtime. The 100+ fully-adjustable filters and 25+ professional controls CameraBag 2 ships with are only the beginning, forming the palette from which users create their own styles. Watch the trailer at nevercenter.com/cb2trailer.

Freedom To Play



With CameraBag 2, you don’t have to know what look you want to get started. CameraBag 2 lets you see all the possibilities at once: old-school instant film or modern high-contrast portrait, subtle color adjustment or complete artistic overhaul. Choose from side-by-side comparisons with the fullscreen Quicklooks, or get large, instant previews on mouseover; the emphasis is on creative exploration. Once you’ve chosen a filter, its components are all in the tray to tweak and adjust non-destructively with large, interactive sliders. The Remix slider in particular brings back the “happy accidents” of analog film, smoothly transitioning between infinite natural variations for each style.

Advanced Control



The new CameraBag features a full suite of photographic tools, from simple exposure and cropping to advanced vignetting, color correction, and curves. The built-in styles also now have full control over their strength and variation. Since every adjustment appears as a tile in the tray, it’s easy to see everything affecting the image at once, and rearrange tiles or edit amounts without compromising image quality. Adjustments and styles can be freely layered to create new looks, which can be saved right into the interface as new filters. Whenever a filter is loaded, the user once again has full control over all of its tiles.

The Analog Engine



At CameraBag 2’s core is the brand new Analog Engine: high-fidelity, 32 bits-per-channel, non-destructive, multi-threaded image processing. In other words, it’s fast and smooth. CameraBag 2 matches the power of high-priced software, yet it’s light on its feet and starts up instantly. Its old-school looks are particularly high tech: recreating the natural blemishes and random variations of the analog world is one of the hardest digital challenges, and that’s where we’ve devoted much of our research. Even the most heavily-modified photos retain smooth, film-like colors (especially with the extra color information in RAW files).

    Ever since I surfed into theappwhisperer.com while looking for the best apps for my iPhone and iPad I have been downloading the apps I really need and want, instead of wasting my time (and money) on apps that weren’t great to begin with. I use CameraBag on my iOS devices and would really love CameraBag 2 for my iMac 🙂 I’m mad about iphoneography and you’ve been a wonderful and credible source of apps info!

    Just saw this on Twitter. Is this your first Mac app giveaway?
    I love CameraBag on iPhone. I think I am going to love it on my Macbook Pro if I can get a promo code to try. It’s always nice to add some effects on your photo before you share it on social networks.
    I really love your video reviews and interviews, especially those on photography apps.
