Project Nimbus is not a secret. Adobe already previewed a app during a MAX conference. But MacGeneration was means to download and play around with a arriving app. Adobe told MacGeneration that it was accessible to some Creative Cloud subscribers for a brief time by mistake. It has been private given then.
In many ways, Project Nimbus feels like a Photos app and iCloud’s print library on iOS and macOS — though on steroids. It lets we store your photos in a cloud, revise them and synchronize them between your devices.
Based on a leak, Project Nimbus gives we 1TB of storage to store all your photos, or during slightest your many new ones if you’re a veteran photographer. Project Nimbus supports RAW files and non-destructive edits. According to MacGeneration, we can return any change we make from any device.
When it comes to modifying tools, Project Nimbus isn’t a duplicate of Lightroom. There are fewer, some-more streamlined tools. It should be reduction intimidating for new comers and easier to yield a same collection on a computer, a inscription and a phone. If we need some-more tools, we can always revise your photos in another app. Project Nimbus isn’t going to reinstate Lightroom.
Finally, while we can still tag, dwindle and rate photos, Adobe is putting a hunt margin front and center. Now that your photos are stored in a cloud, a association can brand a calm of your photos. This way, we can perform absolute searches regulating healthy denunciation (“sunrise”, “penguins”, “mountains”…).
Project Nimbus isn’t going to change a approach photographers revise their work. But it could turn a fortitude behind your print library on all your devices. And while this trickle isn’t quite surprising, it proves that Adobe is still operative on a app and that we could design a beta or a final chronicle during some indicate in a nearby future.
