Adobe Revel

Formerly called Adobe Carousel, Revel is the new cloud-based application produced by Adobe. Revel is a really cool application that allows you to upload your photos from different devices, and then sync all your images to one connected library.

Revel comes complete with editing features worthy of the Adobe brand, with pre-set filters to create film effects, as well as some of the more powerful editing tools you’d find in full-fledged photo editing software.

The brilliance behind Revel, and what sets it apart from other storage programs, is it’s both family friendly and family focused. Let’s say you go on a road trip or family reunion. Everyone takes different pictures with different devices. Some images are on phones, some on cameras. Here’s where Adobe Revel comes in: Revel gives users what it calls carousels, which work as group image libraries. They allow you to send invites, so that friend or family member can then upload, edit, and download images with it. In other words, it lets friends and families share image libraries, even with people who do not have subscriptions to Revel.

The other benefit to Adobe Revel is that it helps you gather all your images into one place, and allows you to view them online on the go or at home. Revel works across different platforms and uses the same tools and interface for each. Currently it’s only on Apple products—Mac OS, iPad, iPhone—but the Revel website says Adobe is developing a version for Windows and Android, with a release date coming soon. Uploading images to Revel is simple and fast too.  The user just needs to tell it what image folder to upload.

One of my favorite features with Adobe Revel, is the photo editing capabilities. The photo editing tools in Revel are fabulous, and have a very Instagram feel to them in that they are very easy to use and have similar effects. I like how they go above and beyond by allowing users to also adjust exposure and cropping.

Overall, I thought Revel was a great tool to have for sharing and editing photos! The cost is $5.99 a month, which is comparable to many other photo storage programs yet most other don’t have such cool photo editing capabilities. If you are interested in trying it out, you can download a free 30 day trial here.

Thanks Adobe for letting me try out this amazing organizational program!  To learn more about Adobe Revel, go here.
