Camerabag2 Review and Giveaway

Happy Friday Everyone! I have a fun giveaway for you today! 


We all know that pictures are a big part of our blogs. Good looking pictures help get our point across and engage our readers. There is a lot of photo editing software available out there today and I want to share a really exciting one with you today.


If you haven't heard of CameraBag2 it is a full suite of photographic tools, from simple exposure and cropping to advanced vignetting, color correction, and curves. It works with both Macs and PCs.


I'm always on the lookout for new ways to edit my photos. CameraBag2 was easy and fun to use. The interface was easy to use, I was able to jump right in and get started. There are lots of filters to play with and they have a mobile app as well so I can edit photos on the go. 


Check out some pictures I edited using the software:

Here's a screen shot of all the adjustments you can make to your photo. CameraBag2 gives you an idea of what your photo will look like with each adjustment so you can decide which to work with. Then you can play around with them- Exposure, Contrast, Light Curves, Color Saturation, the list goes on!

After playing around with the photo you can then add borders:



Or give photos a different feel with filters. Again there are lots to choose from and you can preview any of them before you decide which one you want.




I currently use Photoshop to edit photos but I only know the basics. CameraBag2 seems easier to use right off and theres lots of options to play around with.


So the exciting news: The awesome folks at CameraBag2 are generously giving away 5 licences for the software to 5 lucky readers!! Woo Hoo!
