Adobe kills cloud photo storage

News: The competitive cloud storage space has claimed another victim, Adobe’s Revel.

By James Nunns

Revel, a cloud photo storage service like Flickr, will cease to exist on the 23rd of February 2016. This gives customers just a few months to move their photos elsewhere.

Customers have been advised by the company to move into Creative Cloud, or more specifically the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan. This product was introduced a year ago and appears to have proven to be the final nail in the coffin of Revel.

Of course customers will have to pay for this, at around £8.50 a month, but the company says you get a lot more apps and tools.

To add to the hassle, customers will need to download all photos from Revel before then uploading them to the Creative Cloud.

Other cloud storage services to shut their doors recently include the Seagate subsidiary LaCie which closed Wuala, while AVG shut down LiveKive in 2014.
