Work with Revel Carousels and Libraries

By Barbara Obermeier, Ted Padova

Your online Adobe Revel photos are comprised of two libraries: your Revel Carousel, which contains photos you upload to your Revel account, and a library if you used in an earlier version of Elements.

The library is added to your Revel account when you first log in from the Organizer. You can download selected photos or an entire library from your Revel account from both your Carousel and libraries.

To download photos from your Revel account to the Organizer, do the following:

  1. Click the + button next to the Mobile Albums link in the Import panel on the left side of the Organizer.

    A log-in window for Adobe Revel opens.

  2. Type your e-mail address and your Adobe ID password and click the Sign In button to access your Adobe Revel account.

    Alternately, you can sign in to Adobe Revel by choosing File→Sign In to Adobe Revel. The window shown in figure opens.


  3. Choose what you want to access from your mobile albums:

    • Access your entire Elements catalog from your smartphones and tablets. Select this option if you want to access your entire Elements catalog from your mobile and tablet devices.

    • Choose specific photos and videos you want to view on your smartphone. Select this option if you want to select specific photos you want to view on your devices.

  4. Click Next.

    Your entire Revel library or the selected photos appear in the Media Browser. This step can take some time, so be patient if you have a lot of photos hosted online. When you complete the task, your media is synced and can be viewed in the Elements Organizer and on your devices.

You can choose how to sync your media in Photoshop Elements Preferences. In the Organizer, press Ctrl+K (Windows) or Cmd+K (Mac) and click Adobe Revel. You can turn the automatic sync on and off in this preference setting. When the Revel Agent is on, new and edited photos automatically appear in the Media Broswer.
