# My Photo Management Quest, Part 1: Adobe Revel and Everpix

I am frustrated and I know I’m not the only one. I want want a photo management system that requires minimum maintenance and gives me maximum flexibility. I’ve complained about this before, but I’m tired of waiting for Apple to hand me a gift-wrapped solution. They didn’t last summer in iOS 6 and I have no faith that they will in iOS 7.

In my household, we take most of our photos with our phones, but we also have a big digital SLR which we break out for big events (if we remember to). Ideally, all our pictures would be automatically whisked away into a shared database in the cloud as soon as they are taken. From there we should be able to browse, organize, edit, and share them from any of our device, be they Macs, PC’s, iPads, or iPhones. In 2013, I don’t think that’s unreasonable to ask for.

In the next few weeks, I’ll be looking at several products and hopefully finding answers. Today the journey starts with two separate app/service combos. One is Adobe Revel and the other is Everpix.
