Adobe To Shut Down Revel Share This on LinkedIn   Share This on Google   Tweet This   Forward This

20 November 2015

In an email to Revel users today, Adobe announced it will shut down the service on Feb. 23, 2016. The email also provides a link to the Adobe Revel Downloader to "help you download all of your Revel libraries to your computer."

The company recommends moving to its Creative Cloud Photography plan for $9.99 a month. It suggested downloading your Revel photos and videos to import them into Lightroom, which is included in the plan.

More help is available via a Revel blog post and a FAQ.

Revel, which runs on both desktops and mobile devices, preceded Adobe's Creative Cloud as an online photo sharing and collaborative editing tool with a $5.99 monthly charge that was dropped in December 2012. The unlimited (but metered) photo storage was capped at 2-GB in May 2014.

For more information see the text of the email below.

Act now to move from Adobe Revel to the Creative Cloud Photography plan.

We're writing you with some important news about Adobe Revel. Revel will no longer be available after Feb. 23, 2016.

Members tell us that the Creative Cloud Photography plan -- which includes access to Adobe Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC -- is the best solution for organizing, editing and sharing their images. Lightroom works on your iOS and Android mobile devices, so you can access all your images anywhere you are -- just as you could with Revel.

To get started with the Creative Cloud Photography plan, download your Revel photos and videos and import them into Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

If you used Revel exclusively on your mobile device and still have copies of your files in your camera roll or gallery, download Lightroom for mobile to get started.

If you no longer have copies of your Revel files on your device, use our Download tool to download them to your computer.
