Now that I'm able to add tags to photos, you should give me a simple way to add the tags to a set of photos.
As an example, I want to tag all photos I take at work with the #work hashtag.
Thanks for the suggestion – we just finished rolling this out. You can now easily edit all the tags on one or more photos. Just navigate to the tags view, pick the photos, and select “Edit tags.”
I can see this is an old thread but this is still coming up when I search for batch tagging in OneDrive. Has this been implemented? I can't see any Tag view and don't seem to be able to select multiple photos for batch tagging. Tagging photos individually just isn't feasible and the automatic tagging isn't reliable. Thanks
I have imported 50,000 photos and they are named by category. Now I want to tag them accordingly. I.e. the 5,000 files with names containing "China" needs to be tagged #China. How do I do that at once?

The auto tagging is a disaster! Not only that it get it more wrong than right but once you discover that all your photos have been polluted there is no way whatsoever to get rid of them if you have more than a handful photos.
WTF Microsoft ?
Has this since been removed? I can't even see a "tags view".
That doesn't do the job. I have 580 automatically created tags which I don't want.
When I realised OneDrive was tagging photos automatically I switched off automatic tagging.
However, by that ,after my uploads, I have thousands of photo's automatically tagged with 580 tags which I don't want.
To use Douglas Pearce says has been rolled out would involve going into each set of 580 tags, select each photo within that tag and select "Edit Tags". That would take hours and is simply not practical.
It should be possible to do a select all from the main photo page and then edit or remove tags on all selected photos.
Microsoft - awesome that this is done, but there is an issue with them implementation that needs addressing.
Issue is that when I am tagging and add new tags, the list of "existing tags" does not get dynamically updated.
I am considering migrating all my photo collection to OneDrive, this is one major missing feature that is making me hesitate.
Any news on the possibility of adding this? I really want to be able to tag my photos but have thousands and can't do them all one by one!
The hashtagging is a very good idea, but it is very time consuming doing it photo by photo.
A batch mode should be possible.
tags like Indoor , outdoor, house, grass etc. are not very helpful get better file structure and transperance.
This would make a world of difference to Onedrive
Basically just bring Flickr's Organizr to OneDrive and I would move everything over to OneDrive immediately. Managing photos on OneDrive is still a pain - unlimited storage doesn't help much... also have unlimited on Flickr.

On the Photos area within the OneDrive, after selecting several pictures, have the option to write the TAG I want on all the selected pictures.
I also see that tags are not shown in the folder view

Is it possible to tag this idea in Photos instead?
I checked out the new format on OneDrive and I wasn't sure I liked auto-tagging so my initial thoughts were to be able to a) remove tags from multiple photos at once, which led to b) adding tags to multiple photos at once.
I was surprised this didn't have more votes and wondered if it would get more visibility under "Photos", which has only 13 ideas versus the more generic "OneDrive.com", which has 217.

I'm hoping they start to go this way. I know a new photo app is coming out. I use windows live photo gallery today and have a ton of pictures. I'm assuming we won't see an update to WLPG ever again so I'm hoping the tagging, sorting, rating features end up here at some point.
