Adobe has announced that its photography app, Carousel, is available for iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches as well. The program is designed for users who take a lot of photographs and need a way to view, browse, adjust and share them. Adobe Carousel uses the photo processing technology that's also present in Adobe Photoshop. Adobe Carousel is comprised of a set of client apps for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Mac OS desktops (versions for Windows and other devices are expected in the first half of 2012). 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 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.
Adobe Carousel coming to Macs, iPads and iPhones
To set up Adobe Carousel, users need to download the apps to their mobile devices or computers and set up a subscription plan on their iPhone and/or iPad. Subscribers can import an unlimited number of JPEG images and use the same purchase of Adobe Carousel on as many of their compatible devices as they want. Carousel supports multi-touch gestures and users can also play with the exposure, shadows, highlights, white balance, vibrance, clarity and contrast of their photographs. Carousel facilitates sharing by allowing users to invite their family and friends to collaborate on a photo library for free. So anyone with a Carousel capable device can view existing photos and contribute new ones, apply adjustments and Looks to images, and grab and flag favorite photos. Of course, users can also share photos by sending them directly to Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr or via email.
The Adobe Carousel apps will be available through the iTunes App Store and for Mac, later this month. Through January 31, 2012, Adobe plans to offer Adobe Carousel for a special introductory price of US$ 59.99/year (Rs. 2,669) or US$ 5.99/month (Rs. 266). 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 (Rs. 4,449) or US$ 9.99/month (Rs. 444). 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.
