to reveal; to develop
The word revelar has two main meanings. First, to reveal something.
No quería revelar su identidad.
He didn’t want to reveal his identity.
Reveló los nombres de sus cómplices.

Perhaps less relevant nowadays, when there are digital cameras, is the other meaning of revelar, developing film from cameras:

We haven’t had the photos developed yet.
