You can now use Lightroom Mobile to access your photos on mobile devices, and
Lightroom web (lightroom.adobe.com) to share with others.
You took a professional tool and made it into a consumer tool so that I can clutter up my LR client files with photos of my cat? Huh?
Revel is still very much alive. The 2.3.2 installation issue was fixed in 2.3.300.
You can upload your Lightroom photos from you computer using adoberevel.com.
Lr mobile is designed explicitly to work with Lightroom on the desktop to provide access to your images on mobile devices and the web but unlike Revel it is not a backup or archive solution at this point. We welcome any feedback on what customers would like from future versions, including how it might interact with Revel.
If I have a link directly between LR and Revel then my changes in LR could be seen in Revel.
Now, that there is no direct link between LR and Adobe and if I drag a photo from my browser to Revel instead then it is just the, (in my case as all my photos are in raw) unprocessed raw-file that shows up in Revel. What does Adobe want me to do with that? Which friend or client would I want to show my unprocessed pictures?
This is strange!!
We are forced to use Revel App to open a browser on our computers, log in , drag a copy of our photos ( raw, tiff, pep , JPEG exp.....) and and wait for your web server to take them. So I can view them in Revel ? How does the editing "non destructive editing ", of course from Lightroom .. If I'm right ..... The only possible way to make this work is to export them as JPEG copy's , then drop them into the browser and upload........ this is not worth the trouble
Sorry you are having so many issues. Let me see if I can help and if I can't I'll send someone over who can.
It sounds like you are trying to sync from the LR desktop but can't is that right? Or am I misunderstanding you?
Can you sync from Revel directly, not through the LR plugin, ie, from Revel on a mobile device?
When Revel worked with LR I could easily do this. They could download the ones they wanted - though the ability to download ALL of them would have been a much appreciated improvement. Revel was far from perfect. But it worked.
Also as an archiving solution, Revel was another place my pictures lived if something went terribly wrong with my other backups. If I made changes to photos in LR, those changes could be pushed to Revel - updating my backups. Ditto for those pictures shared with family/friends.
Given these two uses for Revel (the only two I care about), I find it completely maddening that LR mobile is continually suggested.
First, if you are going to constantly tell people to use LR mobile, why are you still collecting money for Revel?
Second, LR mobile does NOTHING that I use Revel for. Sharing photos a few at a time via email or social media . . . ? Um, no. That isn't what we are looking for.
Third, I've PAID for Revel.
Fourth, how hard can it be to RESTORE functionality that used to exist. Why have you stripped Revel???
I KNOW Revel can be used independently. BUT IT SHOULDN'T HAVE TO and any potential elegance of using both programs is lost when your LR edits don't sync to Revel.
Can an Adobe representative PLEASE acknowledge the legitimate concerns we have here??
After downloading the app across on my devices, editing my recent holiday photos in Lightroom 5, I went to publish them and... lo and behold.... nothing.
I cannot in any way understand why Adobe would remove its OWN PRODUCT from the list of publish services. This makes no sense.
Reading the comments and replies above I do not think Adobe has given any coherent answer to these concerns. It is not an answer to direct us to LR mobile. What then is the purpose of Revel?
Please Adobe, give us a real and coherent answer. Listen to your customers and restore this functionality.
I'd just like to add that I have spent a couple of hours editing my photos in Lightroom so they look their best.
I uploaded them to Revel via the browser, but of course none of the Lightroom adjustments are there. So again I say what is the point of having a great organising and editing program like Lightroom if it can't interface with the same company's sharing and storage program???
Turn off auto renewal for your Revel subscription.
Find and replace your image upload software with another
integrated Lightroom plug in!
Adobe I love you but enough is enough.....
Unfortunately for right now, the only way to get your LR images to Revel is via the web browser. If it is a RAW file those images would not retain the edits from LR as it doesn't sync edits.
If you want to retrieve sync’d Lr-Revel photos from Lr4 we highly suggest to use the Revel Mac or Revel Win8 client desktop app. Otherwise, yes, they must be downloaded one at a time through the web browser. At least for now.
Please know Adobe is working to come up with a solution for its LR users.
It's F@#$all use to me now.
Because Apple has decided to kill Aperture I have made the switch to Adobe Lightroom and Revel. Revel should be able to replace the iCloud photostream, but unfortunately there is no way you can easily export photos to Revel from within LR. Does Adobe have plans to (re)introduce a plugin? Furthermore: are there any plans to make an Apple-TV app of Adobe Revel like Flickr did?
I am not at liberty to discuss what Adobe may or may not be working on, as I'm sure you understand, but those are great ideas. I will be sure to pass them along to the Lightroom team.
I wanted to move from Photoshop Elements to LightRoom but... I was really upset trying to find the integration with Revel until I fund this post...
Mr. Adobe, you really did a BAD decission removing Revel integration from LightRoom. If you d'ont bring it back, I can assure you I won't EVER buy LightRoom.
With Lightroom Mobile I would not be able to share my pictures with my family now :(
As per Steve's comment, you can indeed share your Lightroom images through the lLghtroom website: lightroom.adobe.com
1) stop updating every 2 days flash
2) try to write a 10Mo adobe reader and stop updating every 2 days
3) go for lightroom 6 with real sharing, online etc
4) we want to pay lightroom only 1 time not everymonth
5) think lean
