I'd like to select multiple images with simple click of a mouse to:
- rotate all
- delete all
- edit all
- copy all to local hard drive
- upload all to printing web service
- move all to album
- edit/add/delete tag to all

Actually for example to delete one only photo we have to click on a single photo, click on edit, click on delete, confirm de deletion ....
Too many click, too many waste of time ...

Hello Carousel Team,
I would like to introduce myself, i think I'm one of your target customers for this product. Young professional, tech savvy, very keen photographer (not professional) and owner of mac, iPad and iPhone.

Firstly i have to congratulate you all on a wonderful new way of viewing my photos. I love swiping though my carousel and being able to access all my images where ever and when ever. It so easy to look though my images with others, to show and share. I work in a film and Tv production and really think this is going to be a bit help to me. So thank you very much!

The one major feature request I have is a simple on. To apply actions to multiple photos. Ie. sharing, rotating, editing, apply looks and deleting etc. The biggest annoyance for me is not being able to up load a collection of images to Facebook.

I would very much like to help in anyway I can with what I see as a great product, so is there a way of signing up to be a beta tester?

Many thanks

Agreed! At the very least, being able to remove multiple photos that we no longer want on the carousel, but multi-editing seems like a basic feature that any user of this program would want (and require).

I strongly agree. This is an unacceptable limitation to an otherwise excellent product.

I second this! Specifically I need to select multiple photos and rotate them from landscape to portrait. Editing each photo, clicking rotate and Apply takes far too much time...

This is more of a comment than a question.... Carousel needs the option to do a batch delete. Single photo, one at a time delete is not efficient enough, especially with large libraries.

Because a decision was made to discontinue and focus more on archiving, organization, and sharing across devices, users were given the option to have their jpg files in copied to Revel. This was offered as a convenience so that users did not have to go to the effort of downloading from the one site and uploading to another, since that can be very time consuming.

Revel was not designed as a replacement for (it has more of a focus on sharing between devices without requiring storage on each), it is an alternative cloud storage and sharing option that existed in parallel with

We realize that Revel does not have some things that you are used to seeing on, and we realize how frustrating that must be, especially since we do not have one option that covers all of the needs of what is being discontinued. Many of the requests we have seen will be implemented in Revel moving forward.

Regarding the actual topic of the original question, currently you can select a group of photos to delete or move to an album.

I'm going to assume this is no longer under consideration.
