I created a Mobile album by mistake in PSE12. I have no mobile device. ALL of my pictures went to Revel-thousnads. How can I delete this mobile album and all of the pictures on Revel? I like using it but not for all of my pictures.

If you check the option to make all your Elements photos and videos available in Mobile Albums, then Elements will move everything over to Mobile Albums, and upload it all to your Revel Library.Be careful with mobile albums because if you delete an image in either Elements or Revel, it will be deleted in all the apps. So, be careful.

If you have mobile albums that you only want in elements, there is a way to move them back.

Simply select one or more of the photos in the Elements Organizer. Then right click on one of them and select Remove From Revel at the bottom of the list. That will move them out of Revel, and keep them in the Elements Organizer. Does that help?

The "Remove from Revel" is grayed out so I cannot select it. I get an error message that says "My Revel account limits have been reached...". Does that cause the "Remove from Revel" option to be grayed out?

If so, how do I get the Remove option back?

Note: I do NOT want to pay to increase the size of my Revel account just to delete all photos on it.

Please go to Edit>Preferences>Adobe Revel and uncheck the option to upload all media automatically to Adobe Revel. Then select all files marked for revel by selecting library in left panel and select all media by control +A and select remove from revel.
Or all these media to one mobile album and then move it to local. These would make all these media local and later you can delete the local album by right clicking it.

Please let me know if that helps.

You can also drag and drop a mobile album onto a local category. Media in the mobile album is downloaded as it exists in Revel and stored locally. Then, the downloaded media is deleted from Revel.
