Adobe updates Revel cloud-based image service to v1.5
Adobe has announced an update to Revel, its cloud-based storage, editing and browsing service. Available as an app for Mac users and iOS device owners, version 1.5 offers the ability to organize your pictures into photo abums and share these privately with friends and family online in galleries hosted by Adobe. Images can now be captioned and the updated UI includes a 'Library' grid view for easier image browsing. Subscription pricing for the service remains at US $5.99 per month. Revel desktop software is available in Apple's Mac App Store and iOS versions can be found in the iTunes App Store.
Adobe is clearly pitching Revel as a family-friendly (read mass market) solution aimed at users who have little use for editing tools as robust as Photoshop Elements or similar software. One of the more useful features offered here is the ability to share photo galleries online with friends and family, neither of whom need to have a Revel subscription or app. And in keeping with Revel's sync-everywhere mantra, should you re-edit an image already hosted in one of these web galleries, the image will update to reflect those edits as soon as the page is refreshed.
Adobe Revel 1.5 Now Available
New Album and Captions Capabilities keep photo libraries organized on Mac, iPad and iPhone
August 23, 2012 - Adobe today announced the immediate availability of Adobe Revel 1.5. Available in the Mac App Store and the iTunes App Store, Adobe Revel is a photography app that marries powerful and intuitive organizing and editing tools with a cloud technology uniquely designed for photos. With Revel users have one place for all their photos, which they can access using their iPad, iPhone, and Mac. And thanks to automatic syncing of everything a user does – importing and editing photos, creating albums – Revel is the only app that allows consumers to access and manage one photo library on virtually any iOS device or Mac computer.
My favorite things about Revel are having my whole photo library always with me and automated syncing,” said Gayle Vehar, blogger at Mom and Camera. “I love being able to make adjustments and manage photos on-the-go without having to manually sync when I get home—Revel just handles all of that for me. Revel is the perfect photo app for families because we’ll never miss a moment.”
New features available in Adobe Revel 1.5 include:
- Albums to organize photos – Create an album on one device and it is automatically updated and accessible everywhere
- Sharing albums on the Web – Share private albums with friends and family via AdobeRevel.com
- Captions – Add context to memories with text descriptions
- An updated all new UI makes the app more intuitive and easier to navigate
- Library grid view – Browse photos in track or grid view
- Sign in with Facebook or Google IDs – Eliminate the hassle of remembering another password by logging in with a Facebook or Google ID and password
Revel helps users keep their photo library organized with the ability to create albums and apply event tags. In addition, Revel makes it easy to create better-looking photos — users can crop, apply Looks (filters) or use sliders that control lighting, color and clarity. With effortless syncing and no limits to the number of photos that can be imported, consumers now have the freedom to use any device of their choice to play with all their photos anytime.

Users with an expired trial as of August 21, 2012 will have another 30 days to try the new version.
