  1. Face Recognition & Share Face Collections

    Face recognition and tagging would be incredibly useful! Because whenever I take a photo of a friend or a family member, it will be able to recognize them and puts their photos in their own face collection which then I will be able to share their face collection with them.

    This way, all my friends and family members will instantly get notification from OneDrive whenever I take a photo of them. and they can see it in their OneDrive or Photos App on Windows without me having to create an Album for each event, put their photo in that album…

    • Face Recognition and Album Creation

      There one missing key feature and that is face recognition and ability to tag faces of friends and family members. So that I can find them easier and share their photos with them. Whenever I take a photo of a friend or a family member, it recognizes their face and puts that photo in their album which is shared with that person and they can see their own photo! This way, it brings more people to OneDrive because they can see their photos taken by other family members in real time and get notified. Windows 10 has face recognition in…

      • Keep uploaded files creation date and not upload date

        Upload date is arbitrary and has no correlation to when a file was created. The creation date is very important in photos and even in technical documents.
        Changing the original file creation date is a very bad idea. Please allow for an option to prevent this.

        • Sorting of photos in my own albums

          It's not possible to sort and rearrange photos in onedrive albums. They can be sorted in files but when creating an album of your own the photos are mixed again. While using traditional photoalbums everyone wants to clue the the photos in a certain order. Do you agree?? Is is impossible to put into practice in onedrive albums, too???

                • Make OneDrive work with Lightroom photo processing

                  Recently attempted to use OneDrive in "save space" mode for storing photos. Can't process photos with Lightroom because the images are not automatically downloaded when Lightroom is attempting to use the images. Please fix. Until then I will continue to store my images locally and not use OneDrive to save local disk space.

                  • Add shared folder to Photos

                    I would like to add photos from a shared folder to my own photos library. Background is that we use one drive for our photos in my family. Thereby we share photos with each other so that everyone can access it.
                    To avoid that I have to sync all the photos locally I do not want to add them to my one drive itself. I just want to be able to add the to Photos so that they get indexed and that I can use the online application to access them.

                    • We need better tag-editing capability

                      I think it’s a huge oversight that we cannot edit tags from within the tag section of the photos view.

                      We need a batch-edit feature ASAP!

                      Many thanks.

                      • Olá meu nome é Ivo, sou um usuário pouco comum no OneDrive, achei muito interessante a forma de salvar imagens pelo celular.

                        Mas creio que não só comigo, mas vários outros usuários acontece o caso dele salvar arquivos de imagem e vídeo que você não quer guardar, então, uma função interessante seria você poder escolher uma pasta pelo OneDrive em quando eu estiver com acesso a internet ele somente pegará arquivos daquela pasta. Espero que seja uma boa e futuramente bem implementada função.

                          Can one drive please add face recognition to help find and accumulate photos. It’s 2018 after all. This should have been added long ago!!

                                • “Upload in Background”

                                  I would love to activate my “upload in background” feature to ensure my photos are always uploaded without me having to think about it. However, I will not use it unless it becomes independent of the “ share my location” function. I don’t see why my location whereabouts need to be known for the app to be able to upload my photos automatically. Please adjust and make your customers happy.

                                  Thank You,
                                  AP

                                    • Allow to select the location where to put photos upload

                                      Allow to select the location where to put photos upload

                                      The auto photo upload function not so effectual.
                                      Because they put all the photos in the same folder.

                                      It should allow to select where to put these Pic separately.

                                      Likes I created a folder for my phone only, and in this folder, I separate each period to place photos.
                                      Maybe you guys could consult my habit.
