Initially, Carousel won't offer any metadata or tagging features. When you start to use it (if you do), please use this site to give us feedback on what you'd like to Carousel to do with metadata.

It may be helpful to know that Carousel does not strip out any metadata that was already embedded in the photo prior to importing into Carousel.

That is really helpful to know. I teach scrapbookers how to organizer their photos at - several of my students want to tag and organize their photos while using their iPad. I'd LOVE to see the ability to import a keyword list from Lightroom, Bridge, etc. and the ability to keyword your images on the iPad. That would take individual digital asset management to an entirely new level. Making it so much easier and accessible for everyone to do.

Another "wish list" feature is face recognition that you could import back into Lightroom...

Metadata is as, if not more important to the future viability of our images than editing. imho of course. :)

I fully agree to Kayla! In my eyes the iPad is an ideal tool for a first review of the images and assigning metadata is an essential part of this process for me. It would be great if Carousel offered at least tags, even better would be the full IPTC metadata set (like Lightroom).
I ́d also welcome a direct Lightroom integration a lot.

We need at least basic tagging! Please. My ideal search would be "show me photos of Ted in Hawaii" and then it brings up all photos that were tagged Ted and Hawaii.

Face recognition and auto applying people tags would be huge as well. But get at least the manual tagging dine for now and I'll be happy.

Was hoping that Adobe Carousel would be a good solution for professors, educators, curators, etc. who need to effectively manage personal image collections. Without the inclusion of at least basic metadata support / editing features (IPTC Core for ex.) I wouldn't feel comfortable recommending Adobe Carousel for these user groups.

Agree completely with Kayla (above) that metadata is important to the future viability of images, image organization, and image sharing.

Currently Adobe Revel does not reference tags or metadata. The data that is in your images is still there but Revel does not use it. You should still be able to use the tags in Photoshop Elements 11.

While Revel offers some of the top features from, it doesn't offer everything. We know that can be frustrating. We are working very hard to deliver more capabilities and expand onto new platforms, devices, and file formats. But we need your help. Please give us your thoughts on how to make Revel a better product.
