Adobe's Carousel apps cloudify photo libraries and editing tools


There are plenty of products to help you manage your photos in the cloud and it's only natural that Adobe — the big name in multimedia software — is offering an option of its own. The apps — and corresponding service — are called Carousel and they are available for Mac and iOS users now.

The Carousel apps can be downloaded for free from the Mac App Store and iOS App Store. (Windows and Android compatible versions will become available in the future.) The corresponding service comes in the form of a paid subscription which is priced at $60/year or $6/month until January 31, 2012. After that date, the subscription will set you back $100/year or $10/month.


What do you get for all that money though? You'll get the option to import a "virtually unlimited number of JPEG files," syncing between all your devices, built-in photo editing tools, and tools to share photos on your favorite social media services. Additionally, you'll have the ability to create photo libraries to which you can invite friends (they in turn can add and flag photos).

Just snap a photo using your mobile device or import it using the desktop app and ta da! You'll be able to instantly view, edit, and share it it from all your other Carousel-enabled devices.

Here's how all that looks in action:
