SHARING OVERVIEW:

In Revel, you can share links to albums which allows others to view photos and videos from a web browser at adoberevel.com. Revel also supports sharing in a variety of other ways, by email, facebook, twitter, message, etc. In addition, users can create libraries and invite other revel users (such as close friends and family) to collaborate in a group library. Collaborative users in a group library can add photos and videos, make comments, and favorite photos and videos.

 

SHARING PHOTOS AND VIDEOS ON SOCIAL MEDIA

Users can share specified photos and videos on social media sites such as facebook and twitter. They can also post a link on social media sites that will take users to view an album on adoberevel.com in their browser.

 

SHARING LINKS TO ALBUMS (Recipient does not need a Revel account)

General sharing in Revel is done by sending a link to an album to others so that they can then click on it or paste it into a web browser in order to access your Revel album online for viewing and downloading files (You can enable or disable downloading for each album). If you want to share a particular photo, you can view an album in the browser, then select the photo of choice, and then copy the url in the browser bar and send that instead. Users will still have access to the entire album, but it will open one specific photo.

 

SHARING VIDEOS

In iOS, you can share a video by tapping on the video to bring it up in full screen view (loupe view). Tap on the arrow on the upper right hand corner and pick "share". You can share via message, twitter , or email. Alternately, you can select the arrow and pick share to facebook.

 

In adoberevel.com, videos must be put into an album and then a link to the album can be shared as described above in “Sharing Links to Albums”

 

Video is not yet supported in the Mac and Windows 8 versions of Revel.

 

 

GROUP LIBRARIES  (Recipient must have a Revel account)

 

Revel users have the ability to create additional libraries, and the option to maintain them collaboratively with selected trusted users. This feature allows multiple users to login to Revel and access a "GROUP" library. The owner invites other users to participate in his/her group library by email invitation. Users who participate in a group library will have access to the library when they login to their own accounts. They can add and edit files, and remove files that they have added, but cannot delete files that others have added.
