Adobe Systems has announced Adobe Carousel for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch and Mac OS, using the cloud to provide a simple way to view, browse, adjust and share photos without worrying about manual syncing or storage.

Adobe Carousel uses the powerful photo-processing technology used in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, providing quality photo-editing results on multiple devices. Edits, deletions or additions to the library made on one device are automatically updated across all devices linked with the account.

Users can adjust exposure, shadows, highlights, white balance, vibrance, clarity, and contrast. There are also over a dozen “Looks” that allow customers to quickly experiment with the appearance of a photo.

Friends and family members can collaborate on a photo library free of charge — 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. Users can also share photos by sending them directly to Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr or via email. Price is US$59.99/year or US$5.99/month.
