  1. Make OneDrive work with Lightroom photo processing

    Recently attempted to use OneDrive in "save space" mode for storing photos. Can't process photos with Lightroom because the images are not automatically downloaded when Lightroom is attempting to use the images. Please fix. Until then I will continue to store my images locally and not use OneDrive to save local disk space.

  2. Add shared folder to Photos

    I would like to add photos from a shared folder to my own photos library. Background is that we use one drive for our photos in my family. Thereby we share photos with each other so that everyone can access it.
    To avoid that I have to sync all the photos locally I do not want to add them to my one drive itself. I just want to be able to add the to Photos so that they get indexed and that I can use the online application to access them.

  3. Olá meu nome é Ivo, sou um usuário pouco comum no OneDrive, achei muito interessante a forma de salvar imagens pelo celular.

    Mas creio que não só comigo, mas vários outros usuários acontece o caso dele salvar arquivos de imagem e vídeo que você não quer guardar, então, uma função interessante seria você poder escolher uma pasta pelo OneDrive em quando eu estiver com acesso a internet ele somente pegará arquivos daquela pasta. Espero que seja uma boa e futuramente bem implementada função.

  4. I would like to delete duplicate photos but I can not tell which file they are in untill I delete them.

    I would like to delete duplicate photos but I can not tell which file they are in until I delete them. I would like to know from which file folder I am deleting the photo from before I delete it.

  7. “Upload in Background”

    I would love to activate my “upload in background” feature to ensure my photos are always uploaded without me having to think about it. However, I will not use it unless it becomes independent of the “ share my location” function. I don’t see why my location whereabouts need to be known for the app to be able to upload my photos automatically. Please adjust and make your customers happy.

    Thank You,
    AP

  11. Sorting of photos in my own albums

    It's not possible to sort and rearrange photos in onedrive albums. They can be sorted in files but when creating an album of your own the photos are mixed again. While using traditional photoalbums everyone wants to clue the the photos in a certain order. Do you agree?? Is is impossible to put into practice in onedrive albums, too???

  12. Customize Camera Upload

    I’d like to be able to control camera upload to a designated album. I take lots of photos as temporary memory aids and do not want to have them cluttering my personal, more important photos

  13. Better native iOS support for photos

    I should be able to airdrop a photo, not a link. If a link, they should not be able to edit! If a link is received, provide better support to save the photos to the photo app.

  14. Alert users when Wi-Fi is turned off in Android OneDrive rather than telling them "All photos have been uploaded".

    I spent a lot of time troubleshooting OneDrive for Android when it reported all photos had been uploaded, even though new photos were in Gallery. I finally figure out that Hotpot (used earlier in the day) had turned off Wi-Fi. Can OneDrive photo upload alert the user that Wi-Fi is off if "Upload only with Wi-Fi" is turned on, rather than falsely reporting that "All photos have been uploaded". Thanks!

  15. View for Videos

    Hello. Within Photos, can you provide a view for just your videos? Seems I have to scroll through tons of photos to find my videos. It should work much like the way Apple does it in the iPhone Photos App.

  17. More tags improvements

    Also, it would be extremely logical and useful to sort tags alphabetically. And to be able to search for tags.

    Thanks,

  18. We need better tag-editing capability

    I think it’s a huge oversight that we cannot edit tags from within the tag section of the photos view.

    We need a batch-edit feature ASAP!

    Many thanks.

  19. Performance

    The upload speed aeems to be very slow on onedrive. Seems to take 2x the time vs other services.

    Also, background upload of photos doesnt work. I have to siit and watch the full pics get uploaded. A waste of time... Pkease fix this!
