Adobe launches its Carousel app | Practical Photoshop
Adobe is bringing its own brand of cloud-based photo editing and storage service to the App Store.
Launched at Photoshop World in Las Vegas, Adobe Carousel squeezes the photo-processing tech from Lightroom into an app for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Mac OS.
The scope of Carousel’s subscription-based service is much broader though, as it enables you to upload your entire photo library and edit and share the images across multiple devices without having to sync them or manually transfer files between them.
You’ll also be able to invite friends and family members who have a Carousel capable device to view and edit galleries, as well as uploading their own images.
“With Adobe Carousel we are extending the power of Adobe’s imaging expertise beyond the desktop and onto tablets and smartphones, delivering instant access to your complete photo library and the freedom to edit and share photos anywhere, any time,” says Adobe Digital Imaging’s Winston Hendrickson.
“Thanks to Adobe Carousel, users never need to worry about wasting time syncing, remembering if a photo was saved to a particular device, or worrying about maxing out storage on their iPhone or iPad.”
Adobe Carousel will hit the iOS and Mac App Stores in late September, starting at $59.99 (£40) a year or $5.99 (£4) a month. From 1 February 2012, this will rise to $99.99 (£65) or $9.99 (£6.50) respectively. A Carousel subscription enables you to install the app as many times and across as many compatible devices as you like,
Android and Window versions of Carousel are expected to launch in early 2012.
