  3. Sync folder structure with pictures.

    Over time, we are all ending up with thousands of images. Having them all merged together into one folder cameraroll is more than inconvenient once you have more than a few thousand images.
    In my devices they are organized into folders, but once synced the folder structure is stripped out and they are all bunched together. Finding an image is challenge and usually not worth the time. I and up finding it on the device and sharing it separately.

  4. Enable Photo Search by Location geo tag

    Almost all of my photos taken from my phone include location information with the photo. I can see the location information for each photo on OneDrive when viewing the photos individually. However, I see no ability to search for photos taken at any given location. Hoping this is an easy one for OneDrive team to roll out...

  5. Change the camera roll backup destination folder

    When I started to use OneDrive on my phone (doesn't really matter which one it is), OneDrive chose to backup my camera roll to a folder called "SkyDriven kameran kuvat" (it's in Finnish and you can see it uses the name 'SkyDrive' in the folder name). I have no idea why this folder name was chosen or why it chose the root of my OneDrive either.

    I think it should be possible to change the name (and destination) of the folder to which camera rolls are backed up.

  6. Stop indexing album arts on my Photos

    Stop indexing files of my Music folder in my photos, album art is a hidden file that shouldn't appear on my photos, and if is on a Folder called Music, Is really obvious that should not be indexed as a Photo, it also applies to Documents.

  7. Optionally ignore album art in Photos

    Please make an option to ignore/skip/hide all of the album art images in my OneDrive's Music folder so they won't show up in my Photos view in the OneDrive iOS app. Finding and showing all those images is slow and useless since they're not photos I've taken.

  8. Photos Section - Show Photos From Feature should have "Custom Folder Selection"

    I want to be able to select which folders the PHOTOS section can scan for media to show under that tab.

    the problem i have now, if for example, i upload a small website (as an example), and its not zipped, all the icons and website photos show in the PHOTOS section.

    It would be nice to omit these type of folders.

  9. Duplicated

    When I copy a photo from one drive back to my local iPhone photos, it copies it again to one drive creating a dupe. It should recognize that it is already there.

  10. tvOS application

    Imo it would be a welcome addition if a tvOS compatible version of OneDrive were to be released. Mostly to take advantage of the photo library that is synced from a phone and can then be viewed on the big screen. Then one could replace the native tvOS 'photos' application that requires iCloud/photostream (instead of one drive).

  11. Photos

    Photo dates in camera roll need to be more searchable. Add functionality similar to Photos app on windows 10, where if a date is selected a date picker pops up.

  13. Would like to print photos at a photo kiosk

    I use one drive as a secondary hard drive for my most treasured photos. I would love to see the option to print photos at a CVS, Walgreens, Sam's Club, Costco or just a Kodak kiosk. Recently my computer had to be sent into the Microsoft store and I had an all about me project due for my 5 year old. I was in need of photos to print at a photo kiosk and was unable to do so through one drive. These kiosk have access to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and etc; but no option for one drive. This was…

  14. Hidden Folders and Passcode lock for selected folders

    In iOS Photos app we have hidden folders and any can have look at the photos which is not the reason why those pictures were hidden. If there is an extra security for hidden folders like choose pin and so on then it would allow the person owing the phone to hide some epicures which he doesn't want to show to some friend peeking in.

  16. Memories/On This Day

    Onedrive should feature the uploaded photos, taken on the current date in any past year, on the landing page for a user. The feature could have a collage of memories or an album, but should be available with 'share' option to post on Facebook or email, etc.
    This feature is already very popular on Facebook. Among cloud spaces, I've found Amazon doing this fantastically, and now even Google Drive is having the feature.

  17. Searching Photo Albums

    It would be great to be able to search using photo album titles rather than having to scroll through all the albums to find what I'm looking for. Just a thought...

  19. Mirror camera roll on phone

    I would very much like to have the ability to mirror my camera roll on my phone. I use OneDrive primarily as a redundancy measure for my photos. When I delete a photo I want it to be deleted from OneDrive as well. Currently when I clean up photos on my phone, I have to go to OneDrive to do the same which is a very tedious task.

    I've sent a question to support asking if I delete my photos on OneDrive, disable upload on my phone and then re-enable it will make OneDrive resync my photos and the answer…
