CameraBag 2 {Review & Giveaway!!}

If you are a regular follower of Peanut Butter and Whine you know certain things about me already. First, I get excited over new products!  I love product testing. Second, I love taking pictures and sharing them. (it's like my Nonnie's Brag book times a million!!)  Sooooooo when CameraBag 2 agreed to let me write a review  I was so excited. I immediately started playing with the program and now??  I'm not just excited I'm GIDDY!!!  The first day I played with CameraBag2 for three hours, my husband was tired of hearing 'Look at this one!'  My daughter Lael, after I emailed a few dozen original vs enhanced photographs, cried uncle and went to bed.
I LOVE THIS PROGRAM!  I can't believe how EASY this program is to use!!
I have to share before and after pictures with you!! Some of these shots I was going to delete and now they are some of my favorite pictures!!!!!!!!!!

After pictureThis photo was okay..... it's cute.... I love the expression on Eli's face.  I love the sweet look on Emma's face but it was just an okay shot..... now its one of my FAVORITES!!

Another shot I almost deleted is this one of Eli.  I mean really, do I need a picture of the back of his head??  OH YES I DO!!!!!  I love this shot!! It's a completely different look!!

This picture of Emma dancing is an okay shot.  I wouldn't delete it but I wouldn't  make prints of it.....  OR WOULD I?!?!

I used CameraBag2 for the pictures I took at Alice's Birthday Party. The photo's came out amazing!!  I also used CameraBag2 for the pictures of Jamie's Graduation Party.   
This program is so much fun to work with!! I love that once I have a 'favorite' effect zero'ed in I can save it to use over and over.  As you can tell right now I'm very obsessed with the Vingette setting.  It blurs the outside of the picture to the density YOU want!! The effects are amazing in this program!! Seriously I could post a million pictures showing you the amazing effects or I can send you to CameraBag2 and play with the program yourself.... ummmm what to do.... what to do....... Alright...... you win.... here are some of the links to try out the effects for yourself!!

    I like the Vingette setting also. So many pics I have that I wish I could do this to

  8. I don't know if this program does it or not, but i LOVE turning a color photo black and white, then "coloring" only certain areas, like a bride's boquet, or candy hearts in a child's hand.

  9. Love "apocalypse"- such a neat effect. Looks great with photos of flowers & foliage!

  10. I like the Relaxed Sepia!


  11. I also like the Vingette setting, I like how it frames the picture.
