  1. 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…

  3. Rotate images

    When you view images, sometimes they appear sideways, so having the option to rotate the image allows us to not use the screen lock button and rotating the device.

  7. Photo caching

    Please have a look at the photo caching of Google Photos! You can set the cache size and have a fast photo viewing experience. Thanks.

  8. Default sort order?

    It looks like the default sort order is "Oldest" first and I wish I could change it to "Name - Ascending" for all folders and subfolders. Maybe you can give people an option to change the default. Thanks!

  9. OneDrive Photos as a separate App

    I love the whole concept of OneDrive and I'm using it as my FileStorage too. But please separate the Photos to another app. The best example for that would be Google Photos.

    If you do a separate App way more People would store their Photos on your Platform.

    Merging a File Storage with Photos isn't that what users want.

    So please Microsoft, develop a standalone app for photos stored in OneDrive and do whole magic with automatic albums, face recognition etc. there.

    Would be great to see that!

  10. Smaller pics in thumbnails

    Hi,
    The large thumbnails are pretty cool but they take quite a while to load. Could you guys make a third option of having smaller thumbnails like you did before? I have iPhone 6 iOS 9.0.2, more than 75GB available, extremely fast cable internet, an 88% charge, about 5 low memory/power apps open, over 1000 images in OneDrive. It's slow no matter where I try to work with them.

    I work with a lot of images and I've got over 1000. Besides trying to get them to use them, looking through them is a huge chore because it takes so…

  11. Allow camera roll folder to mirror additional folders that are sync (or subfolders in camera roll folder)

    If you turn on the feature to enable syncing of additional folders on your mobile, the folder structure should be mirrored on onedrive.

    Lumping all the pictures into the camera roll folder is messy.

    Treat them like individual files and mirror the folder structure on the phone or at least allow subfolders in the camera roll folder.

  12. Exclude folders for camera upload

    The additional uploads folders shows every media folder on my sd card for music, hundreds of folders, one for each album. It should be possible to select to ignore a root folder and therefore all the contained sub folders. I.e ignore sdcard/music

  13. Photos View Like Google Photos

    Photos should be sortable like Google Photos app. This includes:
    -Scrub bar on left to quickly navigate to dates.
    -Search function that works quickly to find named photo files.
    -Exclude folders from the photo viewer.

    As it stands, the photos part of the app is useless to me as I cannot find the photos I want to show. The search never finds named photos or it is super slow to find anything. And with 7,000 photos, I cannot scroll through all of the photos.

  14. Background upload

    I have to open the app so it recognizes new photos and videos to upload. Please update so it's always checking for new photos and video to upload without having to open the app. Dropbox does this and it's a very nice feature.

    Thank you,
    Jeff Sprott

  15. Add Photos feature from OneDrive Personal into OneDrive for Business

    Please add the Photos feature from OneDrive Personal into OneDrive for Business.

    It is really disappointing that there is a feature in the free version that we cannot access with out Office365 E3 license.

    In particular we would like the Album and Tags functionality on a Pictures folder in OneDrive for Business

  16. a way to find and delete duplicate photos and videos

    no amount of free space is going to be enough if everything is going to keep duplicating everytime I sync! I have jumped from 15GB to almost 29 GB to now 99GB in 1 week!
    There is not enough time in my life to go through every photo and individually delete that many photos.
    Short of totally deleting my entire drive and possibly starting over, there is got to be a way for the program to search the actual photo file name and give you the option at least not to upload duplicates.
    There should be a "similiar" or dupicate…

  17. Allow updating the photo automatically which taken by mobile devices to OneDrive for Business.

    Currently, it is possible to upload photos automatically taken by mobile devices to personal OneDrive, however, the image data is huge in capacity besides it fills up the usages quickly. In order to effectively use of capacity, I hope the feature will be implemented enables updating the photo data within the devices for OneDrive Business via mobile devices such as the iPhone.

    In addition, it would be great if I could modify tint adjustment by [Office Lens] App as well. Thank you for your support.

  18. Stop renaming my photos!

    OneDrive app renames my photos when they are uploaded! Stop this! You are a file sync service, if the name of the photo is different from the original than it is no longer in sync! Again, stop the renaming photos uploaded from my iPhone to OneDrive!

  19. Sync "captions" from online stored images to offline files

    If I put captions on my family photos, i find I am not able to see these captions offline in desktop. Is there a way this could be rectified?

    I've put a lot of time on these captions and hate that I can only see them online.

  20. Photos displayed by location

    Can you provide a view of photos by location using a map similar to the way the iPhone photo app works ?
