There are so many different kinds of devices for shooting and sharing photographs now, so Adobe has developed a series of free apps called Adobe Revel that you can use to share your photographs between your Desktop computer, your smartphone, and your tablet. As of the time I am recording this movie, this system works best if you have Mac products, because not all the pieces are in place yet for Windows users, or those who have Android phones, for example. So, I am showing you this here on the Mac. Mac users, in advance of using this system, you will need to sign up for an Adobe ID, and you will also want to download and install the Adobe Revel app for your iPhone, for your iPad if you have one, and for your desktop Mac.
Now, here on my Mac, I'm going to select these three photos in Elements Organizer. Then I will go to the Share menu at the right side of the Organizer, and down to Adobe Revel. That asks me to enter my Adobe ID and Password. Again, if you don't have one, go to the Adobe site, and sign up for a free Adobe ID. I'll click Sign In, and here in my Adobe Revel window, I can see the three photos that I want to have available on my mobile devices, as well as on my computer. To do that, I'll Export to my Library, and you can see here that even if these aren't JPEGs, Adobe Revel will automatically convert them to JPEG for use in this system.
I will come to the Export button, and click there, and the Organizer goes about preparing and exporting these three photos. When it's done, it tells me that the export was successful, and I'll click OK to close that box. Now if I were to look at Adobe Revel on my iPhone or iPad, I'd see these three photos in my library there. I can also see them in the Revel Desktop app that I downloaded and installed for free on this Mac. Let me open that to show you what it looks like. Here in my Adobe Revel software, the column on the left shows that I'm in my Library, and the content area on the right shows all of the photos that I've uploaded to this library.
The first three are those that I just uploaded. These last two are a couple that I'd already uploaded before I started recording this movie. On the right, I have some options. For example, I can change the sort order of the photos in my library from Newest to Oldest, and over here, I can create albums to organize my photos. So, if I click Create New Album, I could make an album for photos taken in Paris, and maybe another one for photos taken in Belgium, and then I can select my photos here, and drag them into the appropriate album.
They all still appear in my Library, but then I can see subsets of my photos by clicking on one of my albums. That's not all. I am going to go back to the Organizer, so that I can show you that you not only can export photos from the Organizer into Adobe Revel, but you also can import photos into the Organizer from Revel. So I'm going to go to the File menu in Elements Organizer on my Mac, and choose Import from Adobe Revel. In a moment, I'll see all the photos in my Library. I'd like to bring these two photos into my Organizer library, so I'll select those, and I'll click Import, and that downloads those two photos, and in just a minute, I can see them here in my Elements Organizer.
What a great system for sharing your photos between Elements Organizer, and all your devices.
