  1. add subfolders (sub-albums) into albums

    I would like to be able to put albums into an album. For exemple, if I have an album called "Travel in Italy", I would like to create sub-album "Rome, Milan, etc.).

    Thank you

    • Allow two way sync of Camera Roll

      Please add an option to enable two way sync of the Camera Folder. If the option is enabled then when a photo is deleted from a device or OneDrive.com, then that photo would be deleted from all other devices and OneDrive.com. The Android Photos app

      • Sorting

        I find the sorting in this app hard to use. Id like to be able to sort by date created. Also, it would be great to be able to choose a date for an album. I have recently been creating loads of albums with my photos and the date I made the album is not necessarily going to be the same date as the event I've created an album of. Id like to be able to choose a date, in which the event happened, so albums sort in a logical order.

        Cheers

        • Include or exclude folder option for Photo View

          There should be an option which folders I want to see in the Photo View, as default the "Pictures" folder. You should be able to choose all folders in your OneDrive, maybe even shared folders from other people.
          As an example: something like the option from "Selective Sync".

          Previous idea:
          Choose which folder will be included or excluded in All Photos view.
          https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/7536082-choose-which-folder-will-be-included-or-excluded-i
          Hasn't been solved. Only one option to switch between All and Photos isn't enough.

          Previous idea:
          Exclude folders from Photo View

          • Add timeline to Photos View for quicker navigation

            At the moment its difficult to scroll to a particular date of interest. It would help if a timeline was available to speed up this process. For example see timeline on the left of the page in new (as of May 2015) Camera Roll in Flickr.

            • Slow download speed.

              I have 1888 pictures and it's taken 24 hours to get to number 464. The wifi is strong here so that couldn't be the problem. Faster downloads speed.

              • Add the auto tags back to source source files (my offline copies)

                The auto tags feature is great!! I love it so much, I would love it to actually write those tags back to my offline copies of the files so that as I work with them in Lightfoot, WLPG or, really anything but onedrive.com, that same metadata is available.

                This would need to be configurable on/ off as I'm sure some people don't want you messing with their pictures.

                This supports the idea of truly portable files that are the same no matter where or how I look at them.

                • Support for newer Canon .CR2 RAW format

                  Up till now I have been able to get viewable tumbnails and fullscreen of my pictures taken with Canon 600D in RAW format .CR2, when using the webinterface and onedrive app on windowsphone.
                  Now, I changed my camera to Canon 7D mark II which is using a newer/other version of .CR2 RAW format and no tumbnails or fullscreen picture is available in webinterface or app on windowsphone.
                  Please upgrade server to support this newer/other version of the Canon .CR2 RAW format.
                  I am looking forward to be able to see my newly taken pictures again.

                  • It would be great if there was a Tag management functionality. That would sum up all current tags, let you delete tags manage tags better.

                    • sort pictures by the date when it was taken and not by date of the upload

                      in my smartphone the pics are sorted by the date when it was taken. After an upload to onedrive the pic are sorted by the date of the upload.

                      • Lightroom Integration

                        I'm storing all my photos (raws) in OneDrive. Enable a mechanism to sync keywords (or tags in OneDrive terminology) with Lightroom.

                        Since differential sync isn't supported on OneDrive I have to keep the database on DropBox.

                        • Map view of photos

                          Other competing apps have a map view of photos. I know that geotags are copied from my iPhone camer to the OneDrive photos, so why doesn't OneDrive allow for a view of all my photos on a map? OneDrive photos tries to create this view with folders of "Photo Places" but that simply falls short.
                          I actually pay for an upgraded storage level so I can store all my documents and photos in OneDrive, but am strongly considering leaving for Google due to this lacking and wonderful feature. When will this be added?

                              • OneDrive Albums

                                PLEASE, make it possible to disabled the automatic option of making galleries or albums from my photos. It is really frustrating. I wish to turn it off and I can't. If you have such option one should be able to control if he wants them or not. You can't just force it on me to automatically make weekend albums or whatever.

                                  Photos taken with iPhone 6s/7 camera are "live" photos that move when you hold down on them. It would be great to save them in that format to OneDrive! I don't want to store some since they will become still photos on OneDrive :(

                                  • iOS app should support Live Photos

                                    This seems natural to include in a future version. I'd like for OneDrive to include the live photo versions of all my photos so I can stop paying for iCloud so I don't miss out of these features. I have amazing clips of my friends and family and special events and the live photo captured the special moment perfectly. I have already lost too many of these moments since OneDrive stripped that functionality.
