Sync pictures Metadata (tags and titles) both ways
Applying metadata (tag and title) to a file on a PC syncs the metadata to the online storage, however metadata applied online does not sync back to the client.
Please fix that. Tags are grate for pictures.
Thanks again for the suggestion. Tags you explicitly add to photos will now sync down to the photo and should work in other apps that read these standard tag formats. We also recently updated the website to make it easier to manage tags on multiple photos. We hope you enjoy these updates and please keep the feedback coming!
This is only partially done, titles aka captions still do not sync back, this issue still needs attention

I would just like to seeyou pictures
Tags are now syncing properly, thank you.
However Title and Caption are not. Caption on onedrive.com is Title on the local onedrive.
If I change the local onedrive, the change never appears on onedrive.com. Instead, the original from onedrive.com overwrites the local onedrive.
Let me know if you need more info. Please fix as soon as possible.

Now it would be helpful one could visually diferentiate between automatically generated tags (tags added by image recognition) with the user-added tags. Flickr does it by changing the shadding of the tag text.
Another thing with differentiating the tags is by adding an functionality in which the user could "confirm" that the machine added tag is relevant to the photo and have it write back to the file could help the machine learning algorithims in improving.

Please!!!! i have found this issue too, it would be great to make changes anywhere and on my current device so that my pictures are constantly getting more detailed and up to date.

Interesting issue... syncying without metadata included.

Can this also work for the "Caption" feature in Onedrive online photos?
If I put captions on my family images, i find I am not able to see these captions offline in desktop. Is there a way this could be rectified?
I support this. The standard metatags is Tags->IPTC Keywords and Title->IPTC Title, and have to be stored in the file.
My guess is storing tags in files are too huge job for OneDrive today, but if they enable differential sync (http://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/262982-onedrive/suggestions/6369855-enable-differential-sync-only-sync-parts-of-the-f) this should be piece of cake.
Until that, disable all autogenerated tags, don't tag online, don't tag in app and tag your photos only on your computer.
It seems wrong that tags created with the online browser do not sync back to my PC.
