Disabling photo auto-tagging disables places as well.
When I disable auto-tagging in onedrive.com settings, photos with geolocation won't be added to correspond places album anymore. So please allow to disable auto-tagging and retain places functionality.
I agree 100% - the "Allow OneDrive to automatically tag your photos by theme" setting should control the auto creation of #tags only. The 'Places' geolocation categorization should be treated separately.
The inability to have 'Places' enabled and automatic #tagging disabled is preventing me from purchasing more storage and uploading all my photo's because all my user defined tags (created from keyword metadata) are lost in the clutter of the automatic #tags and I can't disable automatic tags as I still need the 'Places' categorization.
