The Revel team is hiring! Developers, White Box Quality Engineers and Program Managers.

My organization is having a bit of a growth spurt and we’re looking for good folks with a passion for Photography and making high-quality, easy-to-use software for desktop, tablets, phones and the web. Here are the positions we’re looking to fill:

The Revel client team is looking to hire two senior computer scientists. This team is building the Revel client for desktop and mobile. You can find out more about the positions from this link and this link.

Prefer coding in Ruby to ObjC or C++? The Adobe Revel web services team is hiring both a computer scientist and white box quality engineer.

The Adobe Camera Raw team is looking for a talented engineer with a passion for photography. This image processing engine not only powers applications like Lightroom on the desktop, but also Revel on mobile, and is a major part of other products like Photoshop, Photoshop Elements and others.

Finally, we’re also looking for an experienced Program Manager to work with me, the engineers, and our Product Managers.

If you are attending the Siggraph conference next week and would like to talk more about any of these positions, leave a comment here or send me a tweet and we can talk.

Issue updating Adobe Revel 1.1 from the Mac App Store?

Several users have encountered a bug in the Mac App Store when upgrading from Adobe Carousel 1.0.3 to Adobe Revel 1.1. The issue is that the app fails to update and you get an error message:

revel update error message

revel update error message

To fix the issue, after seeing hash mismatch error:

  1. Close MAS
  2. Delete Adobe Carousel
  3. Open MAS
  4. Search for Adobe Revel, if not there, search for Adobe Carousel.
  5. Re-install.

These steps have worked for several folks, so let me know if they don’t work for you.

New Adobe Carousel release and name change to Adobe Revel

Tonight we went live with the 1.1 version of Adobe Carousel, this fixes a bunch of mostly small bugs and adds a couple new features as well: auto-import from camera roll and posting to flickr. We’re working on a bunch of new features now for another release soon, some requested by you on our forums. Keep those requests coming!

Another major change with this release is that the app is now called “Adobe Revel.”

There is more information on the product page and on the Photoshop Blog.

We reached a few milestones recently that the team is also pretty proud and excited about. We are now managing more than 21 million customer images. The application has also been downloaded almost 4 million times. We want to continue to improve the application and make it ever more useful and fun for you to use, so please send us your suggestions and feature requests!

Adobe Carousel is now available!

I’ve been waiting a very long time to finally post this. Adobe Carousel is now available in the Mac App Store and the iTunes app store!

Getting this into your hands required a tremendous effort from a great team, and there is a lot more to come. More than just supporting more platforms like Android and Windows. This first version is just the tip of the iceberg. We wanted to put it into your hands, but it isn’t done. There is a lot more we want to do, but we want to hear from you. What do you need to make Adobe Carousel work even better for you? We want to know. We’re already hard at work on the next release, and hope to put it into your hands soon. Until then, download the client from the Mac App Store (requires Lion) or the iTunes app store. We have a 30 day free trial. Upload some photos, create a new Carousel to share with family or friends. Edit your photos and see how much Adobe imaging power we’ve been able to fit in your hands. The subscription pays for UNLIMITED storage for both you AND THE PEOPLE YOU SHARE WITH. That is a pretty serious deal.

Want to know more? This post on the Photoshop blog provides a lot of the official details and links.

This video summarizes what we are trying to create:

and this video tells you more about the team that I am so proud to be a part of (no actors, just really us):

Wondering why I sound so tired in that video? We shot it only days before we finished the product and we’d all been putting in long hours for weeks!

Are you graduating this fall or spring? Do you love photography and writing code? I may have a job for you!

I currently have two positions open for students graduating with a bachelors or masters degree on my team, Adobe Carousel. One position is for a developer and the other is for a white box test developer. The requirements for both are very similar, since both are coding positions. I need strong coders with experience in C/C++ as well as ObjC, Java or a functional language. We are building on a heavily threaded foundation, so familiarity with multi-threading is important. You’ll get to work with some amazing developers on a product that is both interesting to work on and a lot of fun to use. Plus, your family and friends will want to use it so you won’t constantly have to answer questions about what it is you work on!

Here are links to the positions:
