Adobe Carousel is a new paid subscription photo catalog, sharing, and editing service that works between a user’s Macintosh and iOS devices. For this first look Nemo Memo introduction, I tested Carousel on a pre-unibody MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo and an iPad 2.
Macintosh OS X 10.7 Lion is required. For best results, upgrade your iPad to the latest iOS. Both of the above are available from Apple’s App Store. Carousel downloads are free, and installations are effortless on both computer and iPad.
