After landing on the iOS platform way back in 2011, Adobe Revel is finally making its entry onto Android. For users who are not familiar with the app, Adobe Revel is a collaborative tool that lets users view and share photos with options to perform simple editing functions.
Adobe Revel App Review
To get started with the app, you will first need to sign in. You can do it with an Adobe ID, Google, Facebook credentials. You can also sign up for an Adobe ID if you don’t wish to use your social credentials.
Once in, you will be asked to select options to auto upload photos or upload them manually. Once you’ve made your choice, you will reach the Home page which displays a beautiful view of all your uploaded images in the library in a live tile format. The Home page is tabbed, so all you need to do to access your albums, favorites, and activity, is swipe from right to left and vice versa.
Your images and videos are automatically stored in your library, but you can create and store them in albums too. To edit an image simply tap on it and then choose from the icon buttons at the bottom of the screen. You have options to add a caption, add filters, apply contrast, highlights, shadows and so on; rotate, flip, and remove red eye. The app’s integration with Photoshop Elements 12 and Premiere Elements 12 means that you can bring your previously edited images from over there to your Revel library.
There are also options to favorite images and post images to your social network. Select an item and tap the heart button to favorite it or and tap the comments bubble to start a conversation and post it. You can also invite your friends over to start viewing your uploads.
Adobe Revel is free to download but isn’t entirely free to use. You can upload unlimited images and videos the first month, but after that it will be limited to 50 photos and videos per month. That may be just about enough for an average user, but if you want, you can unlock the unlimited version for $5.99 a month or $59.99 a year via IAP.
With competition fierce in the photo storage and collaboration space, Adobe’s subscription plan may not be to everyone’s liking, but do take a look at what the app offers before you make up your mind.
