Adobe's Revel photo-editing app comes to Android

Users can upload unlimited images for free the first month, after that, uploads are limited

Adobe has made its Revel photo-app available for Android, allowing users to share and edit photos on their Android devices.

Revel is an app meant for sharing, storing and managing photos and videos. Users can create albums, share photos and videos via social media and edit pictures as well as add captions and comments to the photos, Adobe said in a blog post announcing Revel's availability for Android.

Revel is also integrated with the Mac and Windows applications Photoshop Elements 12 and Premiere Elements 12 to allow users to upload photos to Revel's cloud in order to access edited photos on the move. Files can also be uploaded to revel from Photoshop Express, GroupPix, VideoBite, Lightroom and iPhoto, Adobe said.

The app can also be used to create a group library in order to share certain pictures only with family or a group of friends. Users can control who can view, add, organize, and edit the images in such a group, Adobe said.

Photos and videos that are imported to Revel are stored in Adobe's cloud and can be accessed via the app that, asides from Android, is also available for iOS, Mac and Windows 8. Images can also be accessed via the browser, Adobe said, adding that the files are automatically synced across all devices.

Revel is available for free with unlimited imports for the first 30 days after which users are limited to up to 50 photo and video uploads a month. A subscription version with unlimited imports is available for US$5.99 a month or $59.99 a year.

When a user decides to quit the service Adobe will store files for up to two years, Adobe said on its website, adding that users can always remove photos and videos via the apps or in the browser.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
