I would love to be able to share an existing folder or collection in LR with Revel simply by highlighting that folder/collection and select "Add to Revel". This should work as an automatic two-way publish feature (i.e. changes done in Revel for that carousel/collection/Album should be included in LR). The hierarchical structure of the selected folder/collection should be reflected in Revel.

I also thinks it makes sense to be able to view Revel photos shared by others to me directly in LR since I am in favour of having all Revel-features also present in LR, but I think this is of less importance. I guess that somewhere down the road, shared Revel photos could also be viewed in a web browser.

It would be great to see Lightroom and Revel be designed to integrate into the same cloud data to provide access everywhere to my Lightroom library.

I appreciate that Revel is geared towards consumers, but I think there is likely overlap with Lightroom users... I can envision many potential use cases:

-download, review and mark favorites / rejects, and mark keywords on an iPad while traveling without access to Lightroom. Or even better, start editing. All this saves a lot of time when you get home.

-Easily share a set of images with someone else

-Sync images across Lightroom catalogs on multiple computers - for example, laptop access when away from a desktop computer. If there will be a higher end version of Revel, this is likely more a case for the Creative Cloud than Revel Cloud, but it would be ideal to make the image sharing work on both to enable an upgrade path as user's needs grow over time.


Revel as currently designed (nomenclature / structure) does not appear to preserve the option for the user to easily integrate the two later. Even if integration is a long ways off, it would be ideal to structure them in a way that allows seamless integration later.

Would love to see Revel and Lightroom integration (or at least preparation for future integration).

It would have been very good if the publish service could bring some data back from Revel to LR. I am not sure what the API supports, but the star-rating in Revel would be great to get back to LR as something. A keyword or a label at least.

If this was possible, I could export recent photos from LR and my wife could review and pick photos that she wanted to print using the star and I could get this info back to LR.

Revel can edit the caption, so this should also get back to LR. And in the future I hope other metadata can be edited in Revel too, so this should also be possible to sync back.

To make me happy, even photo editing done in Revel should be sent back to LR!

I must say i agree that Lightroom and Revel should get better intergration. I`m just ha hobby photographer but its realy enoying that these 2 programs dosen`t work better together.

You managed to get a tight integration with facebook, but not with your own sharing program Revel. Dont know if this is because that Lightroom and Revel are 2 separate development teams... and i dont care, you shoud start working better together and just make it work.

I and many other just want our pictures available where we are and on the device we are using. I use Adobe Mastercollection CS6 at work and are used to Adobe programs working, but the integration between Lightroom and Revel are very disappointing. I`m truly considering dropping Lightroom and Revel and start using Aperture and icloud instead...

Hope someone at Adobe fixes this sooooon!
