  1. Allow to select the location where to put photos upload

    Allow to select the location where to put photos upload

    The auto photo upload function not so effectual.
    Because they put all the photos in the same folder.

    It should allow to select where to put these Pic separately.

    Likes I created a folder for my phone only, and in this folder, I separate each period to place photos.
    Maybe you guys could consult my habit.

  3. Upload pictures automatically for Mac

    Automatically save photos and videos to OneDrive whenever I connect a camera, phone, or other device to my Mac device. This feature is not available in OneDrive desktop app for Mac device. But this feature is available in Windows device. I am trying to move from DropBox to OneDrive but this feature is very important.

  5. Camera Upload- choose destination folder

    So I really appreciate the camera upload feature. Would it be possible to let users set a destination folder by choice? I like to organize all my photos and it's not easy when I end up with a few thousand in one folder after forgetting to go in for a few months. Right now they just seem to end up somewhere random and I'd like to be more deliberate.
    Thanks and keep up the hard work!

  6. Well I can’t see the words I’m typing now, that’s for sure... still haven’t solved the phone X thing yet eh?

    I don’t know if the app is uploading from camera roll... no progress bar, nothing. I don’t see a transfer rate or what file name (like Dropbox). I’m on an iPhone (obviously) and have around 8000 photos, it has decided to upload everything in my iCloud library (which I’ll have to delete from this as you can’t support my storage needs without a subscription. No thanks). Upload in the background (with or without WiFi) does unequivocally NOT work. It only works when plugged into power and on WiFi. Oh and my screen has to be unlocked. Too much...

  8. Onedrive photo edit

    There is no easy way to edit a photo, just like a simple rotate a photo on OneDrive, and then save it to the same file. This is really frustrating as it should be a simple process to manage photos, edit, and share them with onedrive, instead of having to upload it to another photo app, then edit, then save back to OneDrive. Really dumb way of handling large amount of photos.

    I can neither do this on my phone or my computer.

  10. Reading the "Description" metadata from photos badly needed

    Right now only the TITLE metadata is read from the photos (which you call 'caption'). Ability to read the DESCRIPTION metadata is badly needed. Filckr can do it, SmugMug can do it, why not OneDrive? I described it in detail the Support ticket #288424. Should go into the info panel on the right. A 'must have' for all the photographers. Or we'll all migrate to Filckr, who also offers 1 TB (for free) and 'gets' the metadata issue...

  11. Change date of photos

    As it sorts the photos by date it would be useful if you could change the dates of photos taken as some used date saved

  12. Allow photos to be moved from the "photos" area to the "files" area or vice versa

    When I first purchased OneDrive cloud I uploaded all my photos. These now reside in the "files" area. My new Samsung phone dumps all its photos into the "Photos" area. I would dearly like to move all my photos into the same area of OneDrive. But unfortunately I now have my photos taken in two places rather than one convenient place - even though they are on the same OneDrive database. This means I have duplicate directories as well - not happy MS

  13. Uploading to onedrive folder

    Just uploading a file and it seems to be taking along time, I know it’s in progress but would be good to understand how close to completion it is.

  14. Allow background camera upload without needing GPS

    It seems in the latest version that the background camera upload now requires GPS access all the time to detect location changes. Although this maybe useful for some users, I don't find this useful as I simply want my photos uploaded when it's taken, not when I change my location. That way I can turn off location services for OneDrive to save battery too.

  15. Facial recognition

    I would like to be able to filter by facial recognition through my photo album. I would prefer this to be an opt in feature.

  16. Image size

    New layout is poorly designed to view image thumbnails. Please make them bigger like before.

  17. Bring back old photo layout

    The new photo layout is poorly done. The thumbnails are really small. You can barely see the pictures which makes scanning through them very difficult.

  18. Restore the photo preview on folders with photos in

    Prefer the old format, my photo library now looks bland and all the folders look the same. I have a photo in each folder to show what it is about to make it easier to navigate, now I have to look at the folder names to determine how to navigate so it is not as clear, and more difficult for people with poorer eye sight to navigate around.

    If I could roll back to an earlier version to get the functionality back, then I would.

  20. No photos show on your new version folders

    Dear
    I have a huge quantity of folder. With photos show on folder helps me to find the right folder I want easily.
    Now I have to read the file name one by one to find it.
    It really slow down my searching speed.
    Will you consider to have a photo on each folder again?
    Thanks
    Daniel
