Revel: How do I use the service?

All I wanted to do was upload old B&W family photos from a physical photo album, put captions on photos, organize them for the family and then upload them to the "cloud." I finally figured out how to get the photos into Adobe Revel. I created an album and shared it to the cloud. But then I couldn't find the album in my library to make changes as family members told me I had identified some wrong people in some pictures. Still can't find out where my album went but I can get to see it if I click on the link I shared. Ugh! Then I thought, I'll strat to create mini family albums using some of the same pictures I had used in the "lost album." Revel didn't like me using some of the same pictures so I had to leave those out. Ugh again. Then I wanted to organize the pictures to an order that made sense to the family - summer pictures with summer, winter pictures with winter - but again Revel decided to organize them the way it wants to. This is very frustrating. I have spent literally hours trying to find work arounds to Revel. Still can't find where my "lost album" is. Still can't find the editing features. Still having trouble editing captions to make corrections. I am working with Revel on a PC computer not any other devices. Right now I don't care about that. I'm just trying to share an old family picture album with my family. Help

You have successfully loaded 77 photos into your Revel library named "Siri's Library". Although you can not load a photo twice into the library, you can assign photos from the library to multiple albums.

To view the albums from the browser at, click the album icon on the top (see screen shot below)

To change the order (newest or oldest) click on the icons on the top right of the screen from album view. It is an arrow pointing either up or down. (see screen shot below)

Revel does not currently display the filename or tags/metadata, but it retains the information so it could be used in the future.

You can not edit from the browser version of Revel. You can edit using the apps only. If you want to edit and do not have an editor, you can download a photo, edit in> online tools -->photoshop express editor. Then save to your hard disk and upload to Revel. We will be releasing a windows app in the future.

To be notified when Revel is available for Windows and Android:

I hope that helps.
