During the Photoshop World 2011 keynote, Adobe announced Adobe Carousel for the iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Mac OS.
Adobe Carousel is designed for anyone who loves photographs, takes a lot of them, and needs a simple way to view, browse, adjust and share them without worrying about manual syncing or storage, says Winston Hendrickson, vice president of Digital Imaging Products, Adobe. It utilizes the photo-processing technology used in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
Adobe Carousel is comprised of a set of client apps for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Mac OS X desktops. When customers import their photo library into Adobe Carousel, or take new photos using Adobe Carousel on an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, those photos are automatically accessible on any supported device through the cloud-based smart mesh technology incorporated in Adobe Carousel.
Once imported, any edits, deletions or additions to the library made on one device are automatically updated across all devices linked with the account. To set up Adobe Carousel, customers download the apps, set up a subscription plan on their iPhone and iPad, and they’re ready to go. Subscribers can import a virtually unlimited number of JPEG files, and install Adobe Carousel apps on as many of their compatible devices as they want.
The Adobe Carousel apps will be available through the Apple App Store and for Mac later this month. Through Jan. 31, 2012, Adobe plans to offer Adobe Carousel for a special introductory price of US$59.99/year or US$5.99/month. Anyone subscribing at that price will be able to renew at that same price for an additional two years.
At the conclusion of the introductory offer, Adobe Carousel will be US$99.99/year or US$9.99/month. By subscribing, customers automatically receive any enhancements and updates to Adobe Carousel at no additional charge. Customers receive a complimentary subscription for up to 30 days and can purchase a monthly or yearly subscription at any time from their iPad or iPhone.
Customers can download and install the Adobe Carousel apps as many times and across as many devices as they want as a part of their subscription (no additional fees apply). For more information, including system requirements, visit http://www.photoshop.com/carousel .
