New review and giveaway! CameraBag 2 editing software and a Canon 5D MKIII!

Hi sweet friends!


Are you ready for a FANTASTARIFIC new review and giveaway? I am soooo delighted to start a new branch in Easie Peasie world, and that would be offering various posts about photography. I’ve been thinking for months now that I want to incorporate information such as how to start your own photography business, what works for me living in a small town, what does not work, and of course everything in between such as taxes, how to hang your prints and outfit ideas. There are so many things we can talk about in the world of photography and I am ecstatic to implement this topic on EP!
The awesome folks at Nevercenter recently asked me to review their new photo editing software Camerabag 2. You know I was thrilled! It was also a perfect way to kick off the new photography features! I even let my parents look at the software and they instantly loved the user-friendly features. If you have wanted to edit your photos, but weren’t sure you could jump right into Photoshop or Lightroom, this program is perfect for you. It has all the bells and whistles you need to jazz up your favorite photos. And, the software is a dual platform for both Mac and PC's.
Check out this video clip and you will be HOOKED!

Soooooo….are you ready to get started?
Here we go!
I recently took this shot of an old, junky, beautiful truck in Marathon, Texas. You know how much I love rusty, old goodies. I thought she would be a perfect shot to edit with the program.



I opened my CameraBag 2 software...

To load your photos...simply click the large "LOAD" tab.

Then if you look to the right-hand side of your screen you will see five tabs starting with "Styles."

These will actually be your navigation points for each type of editing you are wanting to accomplish.
Let's start with the "Styles" tab. If you click on the tab you will see a long list of various names. When my Dad first read it he asked me why there were so many dates on his picture. Those are actually just a name for the type of edit on each picture.


As you scroll through the choices, it will show you a preview of the effect on  your photo.


I LOVE this feature. Instead of applying an action, then seeing what it looks like, you have a "live" view of the edits on your photo! AWESOME!
Here's one of the color edits.

Here's one of the black and white edits.

If you want to see a full screen of the various edits, simply click the bottom tab on the righ-hand of the screen titled "Quicklooks."

Then click the "Styles" tab. A full screen will be generated with your photo and each type of edit style. You can actually go through each type of editing style in the "Quicklooks" format. This is super cool! It makes editing a SNAP!


After perusing through all my options, I chose the 1937 filter. Ohhh I love the vintage black & white feel!



Then I scoped out the "Borders" tab. Hello cuteness!






This one is my far by FAVORITE! It was destined to be paired with my old truck love!





And here's the FINAL PRODUCT! I looooooooooooove it!!

Ha - I had one of the cameras that used 110 film....and I LOVED it! I'm now a Canon Rebel owner and certainly love the upgrade! :)

I don't remember my first camera. Have been through plenty but could use an upgrade now. My boys are rough.
