Project Nimbus: Adobe's cloud-based photo-editing app on steroids



Adobe has been grappling with its failed Flash plugin, the once-ubiquitous tool that allowed anyone to play video on numerous platforms, but the company is already working on a new project, Nimbus that allow users store photos in the cloud, edit them and synchronize them between devices.

The peek into Project Nimbus happened by chance as it was accidentally made available to some Creative Cloud subscribers for a short period.

And based on the sneak peek, Nimbus feels more like the Apple's Photos app and iCloud’s photo library on iOS and macOS, but offers 1TB of storage to store all your photos, with support for supports RAW files and non-destructive edits.

According to the leak, any changes you make can equally be reverted from any device.

The app isn’t complicated to use, there are fewer streamlined tools, but it should be more accommodating for new users as its easily accessible on computer, tablet and smartphone.

The Nimbus cloud infrastructure means your photos can be accessed from anywhere and any supported device, while you can still tag, flag and rate photos, albeit Adobe has prioritized the search field.

Project Nimbus is still a work in progress, so the app could be coming in a beta before a final version at some point in the near future.
