  1. Add the ability to view pictures on a map

    On Facebook you can go to www.facebook.com/(username)/map and view your pictures on a map. You see number indicating how many pictures and where, and you can also geotag and add additional pictures to places, and see check-ins. You can then zoom in and see your pictures specifically according to geotag information.

    I would propose:
    -add the ability to geotag picture based on typed address, latitude/longitude information, or clicking directly on a map
    -add ability to see all facebook check-ins here
    -integrate Bing Scrapbook and update it to work with Windows Phone 8.x
    -add ability to "Play" a group of pictures,…

    • Sorting photos

      When sorting photos by date, the app seems to sort by date modified as opposed to the date when the photo was taken. When looking at pictures, it is more helpful to sort by the date the picture was taken. It would be helpful if the app could read the meta-data of when the picture was taken and sort that way instead of by when the file was created or modified.

      • Show captions on photos in shared albums

        I have added captions to the photos in a fairly large album, thinking that when I shared it with others they would see them. But the only way that they can see them is by opening the information pane on each photo.

        Captions are a vital part of sharing photos. They should be visible:
        1) In the slide show
        2) On each full screen photo, with an option to turn them off
        3) On the thumbnail screen, perhaps as tool tips

        • make my photo tags usable for others with whom the folder is shared

          Make my photo tags usable by others with whom the folder is shared. No one else sees to be able to search my shared photos by the tags I created.

            • Co-authored albums

              The new albums feature is great. But I can share albums only as read only.

              I would like a way to create a "Editable" album, where people I share the album with can add photos.

              • shared folders show up in Photos app

                I love the new feature (released in July 2015 I think) where folders that are shared with me can be added to my OneDrive.
                However, I'm dismayed to learn that any photos in those shared folders do not show up in either:
                a) The Photos experience at onedrive.com
                b) In the new Windows 10 photos app.

                If I'm adding a shared folder to my OneDrive then I consider that folder to be part of my OneDrive just like all the other photos so i'd expect photos to show up in the Photos experiences. please could you change the Photos experience…

                • Completely remove automatically generated tags from photos

                  My experience, using Norwegian OneDrive, is that the automatically-generated tags do not tag nearly correct enough that I want to use it. Most of them are wrongly tagged, and they mess up my manual tags, making the whole service worthless. The tags don't even have the same translation between the app and the webpage. On the iOS a Court is translated Domstol, which is Norwegian for Court of justice. On the webpage is correct translated, but... you know. Really?

                  And there are way to many tags. Some of the tags, like People and Sky, have almost 100% hit, but 90%…

                  • Rearrange the order of photos in an album

                    It would be really useful to make path to rearrange the order of photos in an album by dragging. Also I need to choose by myself the cover photo of the album, not to be selected at random. Thank you in advance!

                    • Facial recognition

                      It'd be great if OneDrive could recognize people's face, and if it could automatically create folders of people and all the photos where they appear. Like Google Photos

                      • Add timeline to Photos View for quicker navigation

                        At the moment its difficult to scroll to a particular date of interest. It would help if a timeline was available to speed up this process. For example see timeline on the left of the page in new (as of May 2015) Camera Roll in Flickr.

                            • Add the auto tags back to source source files (my offline copies)

                              The auto tags feature is great!! I love it so much, I would love it to actually write those tags back to my offline copies of the files so that as I work with them in Lightfoot, WLPG or, really anything but onedrive.com, that same metadata is available.

                              This would need to be configurable on/ off as I'm sure some people don't want you messing with their pictures.

                              This supports the idea of truly portable files that are the same no matter where or how I look at them.

                                • It would be great if there was a Tag management functionality. That would sum up all current tags, let you delete tags manage tags better.

                                  • Sorting

                                    I find the sorting in this app hard to use. Id like to be able to sort by date created. Also, it would be great to be able to choose a date for an album. I have recently been creating loads of albums with my photos and the date I made the album is not necessarily going to be the same date as the event I've created an album of. Id like to be able to choose a date, in which the event happened, so albums sort in a logical order.

                                    Cheers

                                    • sort pictures by the date when it was taken and not by date of the upload

                                      in my smartphone the pics are sorted by the date when it was taken. After an upload to onedrive the pic are sorted by the date of the upload.

                                      • Lightroom Integration

                                        I'm storing all my photos (raws) in OneDrive. Enable a mechanism to sync keywords (or tags in OneDrive terminology) with Lightroom.

                                        Since differential sync isn't supported on OneDrive I have to keep the database on DropBox.

                                        • Allow custom order on albums
