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

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Tight integration with Revel

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.

-etc...

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.

This. A thousand times, this.

I hate being tethered to my desktop, or even my laptop, when I have my swanky new iPad. The very last thing I want to do is make some half-hearted adjustment while I'm out, knowing that I'll fully have to recreate it at home. Worse still, is knowing that I can't rate, organize, or slim my GIGANTIC library until I get home anyway, so I might as well never use a mobile tool like Revel or iPhoto.

(Yes, I'm one of those shooters that only realized I was getting better after years, and didn't have the foresight to organize and rate and search after EVERY IMPORT.)
