  1. Photo search with daterange

    It would be nice feature to search photos with a date range or approximate date range (ie. startmonth/year - endmonth/year) or by weeknumber. Thank you! :)

  2. 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.

  3. 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...

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  9. Sorting Photos!!!!!

    I would like to support other users who have suggested that photo Albums in OneDrive be sortable, especially alphabetically, and that photos within Albums also be sortable. Wish you could enable a feature like this TODAY. thank you.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. 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!

  14. 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…

  15. Automatically tagging people faces and grouping

    Add some type of engine which tags faces of different people automatically. I have around 138gb of photos on one drive. If you can show unique faces as a list and I click on any face, then all related photos and videos of the person should group and display separately.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. Photos timeline specific folders exclude option

    The timeline should allow exclusion of specific folders (eg, excluding work folders so in case there are images/photos it doesn't mix with family photos)

  20. 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
