With a subscription, you can certainly use Adobe Revel with your own photo library by yourself. So nobody else has to see anything at all. You also have the option to give other users access to your full library OR to create additional libraries that include a subset of photos you want to collaborate with others on. Each library is called a carousel. Ultimately, you decide what you want to collaborate with others on and who you team up with. People you add to your carousels have full rights to add, delete, edit, and share photos.

With your Adobe Revel subscription, you can create up to 5 carousels in total, and on each one you can add up to 5 other people to team up with. None of the other people you add have to pay anything in order to collaborate with you. Collaborative editing is meant for a group that you trust and feel tightly connected to. You also likely all share similar aims in what you plan to do with the photos. For instance, you might want to share a vacation carousel with your immediate family. That way, you can all see the same set of photos, edit them together from any device and each member of the family can add their photos from their individual cameras along the way.

There is a BIG issue with this, I like how the app works and the whole idea as I believe everybody is failing with too much sharing-social networks implementation and photo apps ideas.

The BIG issue is that I do not want to give FULL right at all to anybody, let's say I have all my kids photos for the past 4 years, I want to share with my parents as they have an iPad and this seems to be a great solution.

Now I see that they can DELETE the files too? If my parents make a mistake I'll lose my library forever, ideally it should be a just "observe" option if you want to just show your photos.

My family want to see the photos but not "collaborate".

Can you tell me how to do this?

I agree, there should be at least one more level of sharing. An observe option sounds great!

Yes, if this is an option I'll subscribe for the year but as not it is not good for me.

Currently sharing a carousel is all or nothing. Keeping a local backup copy of all your photos is highly recommended.

I want to b able to protect access to my images. Until Carousel allows specific viewer permisiions and the ability to create multiple sub viewing categories, I'll stick to SmugMug Pro.

@Rebel Spy you're absolutely right
Also 5 users are too few.
On other end while actual collaboration feature is it good for very strict family members, We should have also a feature to allow friends to see our pics with no full right to edit / delete my pic but at least to add new one.
Any official reply on that?
If these feature will be added i'll buy 1 year service in a fraction ...
