Carousel is not just another cloud service! Carousel is comprised of client applications that run locally on each device, and these client apps are connected to each other via a content-aware, mesh technology in the cloud. Sound scary? Well, what it essentially means is that your entire photo library is always up to date across all the devices where you have Carousel installed. That's your entire library, not just the most recent 30 days of photos, and you don't have to worry about any manual syncing! The mesh technology works behind the scenes to provide that benefit and to enable you, if you want, to team up with friends and family to collaborate on contributing to, editing, and sharing a library of photos. Carousel isn't just a bunch of disparate apps, nor is it just a service. It’s all intertwined. That's how we're able to give you the smooth UI and powerful image editing capabilities of native apps.

What if my libraries across computers are large? I have two Lightroom catalogues that are several hundred gigabytes each. I don't have room to store both catalogues on both computers. How does this work if I run Revel on both machines?

Large collections of images should not be an issue. You probably would need to turn off the option to store copies of the originals on the computers to prevent running out of space and remember its going to be somewhat bandwidth intensive transferring everything initially. You might want to start by testing out the 30 day trial first.
