  1. Select folders for photos tab

    I do not want every image file from my entire OneDrive displayed in the photos section of the app. Either default to the pictures folder or let me choose folders to include.

  2. Destination Folder For Photo Uploads

    When turning on Camera Uploads please allow the end user to specify a OneDrive folder name where the photos are uploaded to. This should be done in the iOS app or Android app so that each device can have separate folder.

  4. Automatically Rotate Images

    I use the OneDrive app on iOS to upload all the photos I take on my iPhone. I then use that folder on a Windows 7 PC for my desktop background. For some reason, the image rotation data does not come along in the same way it does when I download the pictures from my iPhone with Windows Live Photo Gallery. Thus, many of my pictures on the desktop slide show are not rotated properly.

  5. Delete photos after upload

    It would be nice if the app would have option to delete the photos from the phone after they were successfuly uploaded to onedrive.

  6. Viewing of OLYMPUS RAW .ORF files

    Please consider to update your RAW codecs and to include Olympus RAW files - orf.

    In particular the Olympus OMD-EM10 support would be nice, but in general the whole OMD line has many users.

    Thank you.

  7. Dedicated Photos app for Android and iOS

    I'd love a dedicated app for Photos just like Google unveiled at I/O 2015.

  8. Albums

    Hello Microsoft
    I have been using Onedrive for a while now and I really like it. It has great memory, is fast and is very useful across all my devices. The only thing so far that I think should be added is a way to make it so all photos taken and uploaded onto the camera roll should also be able to transfer/copy into a folder. This would make it easier to move photos about and you could have groups such as Nokia Photos, Screenshots and more.
    I would really like to see this feature because it would save time…

  9. Live photo support

    Hi,
    Been a user of this app for a while and it is really coming along. It needs to support Live Photos or the value proposition is diminished.

  12. Better photo quality

    The photos upload with original quality, but to see them like that from onedrive you must download them, which is tedious.
    It would be good to be able to see our photos without the toned down preview quality onedrive has.
    Flickr does it right.

  13. Facial recognition

    I really like One Drive, but the Google photos app is much easier to use. Adding facial recognition would help immensely in finding specific pictures. :)

  14. Send update notifications to people I've shared an album with

    Send update notifications to people I've shared an album with so I can share an album once with family and keep adding photos later on. When I add new photos, the people I shared an album with will get an e-mail notification so they can view them right away.

  15. Automatic album creation

    Please add the option to uncheck automatic album creation. This is very boring!

  16. Include shared folders in photos view, automatically for shared folders included in my onedrive

    I am not seeing photos in folders that have been shared with me, even when added to my one drive, showing up under the photos view. IT would be good to have this working across all clients.

  18. Ignore folder or album

    Putting pictures into a specific album or selecting albums to ignore. I take screenshots, pics of documents or just odd things as a note, I don't really want them uploaded.

  19. Offline Thumbnails for photos.

    When searching for a photo on a mobile device it takes a while due to the thumbnails having to download. It would be nice to have the option to have a static offline thumbnail for fast location of a photo in a folder with a large number of items. When the photo is selected then it would access the high resolution photo that is stored in OneDrive.
