I installed the Adobe Carousel iPhone app on my iPhone. However, I have a PC not a Mac. Can I use Carousel on my PC?

Right now Adobe Revel works only on iPads, iPhones, and Macs. The Revel team is developing a version for Windows and Android and hopes to release it in the near future. Your Revel subscription includes support for new platforms, so when those versions become available, you will be able to use them.

Tanya, Harold, and others

The reason you are getting a message about running out of space is because you can no longer uplaod to Photoshop.com once you migrate to Revel. Since Photoshop.com sharing and storage component is being discontinued, it will become unavailable for download and viewing in June after the transition. If you have files there you wand to archive, be sure to user our media downloader to save them all to your computer.

I understand that many PC and Android users feel abandoned and think that they can not use revel right now. There is an option though. Today you can login on Android and PC by going to adoberevel.com on a browser. There is not a full app like Mac for PC or android at this time, but we do plan to add them moving forward. Android has an uploader tool available also.

Most people do not realize that Revel is not meant to be a replacement for Photoshop.com, but rather was designed to address the changing needs introduced by the new multi-device world we now live in. Because of this shift in device technology, Adobe made the decision to focus more on archiving, organization, and sharing across devices. Since a business decision was made to shut down Photoshop.com, we have offered to migrate jpg files to Revel automatically as a convenience to those who want to try Revel as a storage and sharing service and don't want to have to load all those files themselves.

Revel is based on a modern technology platform that currently includes clients for iOS and Mac. We also have plans to release Revel for Windows and Android in the future. In the meantime, those users can access Revel via a web browser at adoberevel.com. We realize that Revel does not have some things that users are used to seeing on Photoshop.com, and many of them will be implemented in Revel moving forward. We hope you will give it a try and let us know any good ideas you have for enhancements.

Since some of you have Elements 11, you can edit files and upload them to Revel. Users of older versions of Elements can save to their hard disk and then upload to Revel if they wish. Other users who do not own Elements, Photoshop, or Lightroom can still use the Photoshop.com Photoshop Express Editor. (I gave instructions to another user on this post if you are interested. http://forums.adobe.com/message/52328.... )

Regarding cost of Revel, using Revel is free up to 50 uploads a month with unlimited storage. The first 30 days are unlimited uploads, so you can get a lot of photos up there in that 30 days and decide if you want to pursue it or not.

I hope that clarifies a few things and helps some of you.

The creative cloud includes the Adobe professional creative desktop applications
and does not include the consumer applications such as Photoshop Elements, Premiere Elements, Revel. These have always remained separate.
