Adobe Revel on the desktop keeps a local copy of all your original photo files. We've heard from customers that it's really important to keep these photos on your computer. In your ~/Pictures directory there's your Adobe Revel Library. Your originals are also replicated to Adobe servers in the cloud and protected by your Adobe ID. That way, your photos are accessible on the other devices where you have Adobe Carousel installed, and your desktop computer doesn't have to be turned on or nearby.

On your tablet and smart phone, Adobe Revel loads thumbnails and proxies of your photos for viewing, and only downloads an original if you edit a photo. That way Adobe Revel is moving the smallest bits whenever possible, meaning it doesn’t negatively impact storage or bandwidth on your device, but it’s also grabbing the full res bits when you need them, enabling a full fidelity editing experience.
