Show only photos from Photos folder
On wepage we have option so see pictures/photos from only the Photos folder but in Android version of OneDrive, we don't have this option when we go to the "Photos" from the mainmenu, it shows all pictures, what we dont want.
So please add that same function from webpage to app.
You can now filter the photos view to show all pictures, only the pictures folder or for Samsung Gallery Sync customers, the Samsung Gallery folder.

Not working for me.
The Option "only the Picture folder of Onedrive" is not shown.
I can only choose if i want to see the "Samsung-Gallary", the "whole onedrive Pictures, including Pictures outside the Pictures folder", or both.
So it does not matter what i choose, i also see a lot of "files" from the Documents folder for example, who have nothing to do with my Albums.
This incredibly basic feature is still not done after several years. Amazing. Please just give me access to the code repository, and I'll do it myself today.

Boom sansung isnt the only phone maker in the world!!!!!!
Think befote you post microsoft. And fix your app. It is tbe number one reason i hate using your app on mobile.
Please fix this adding the option to filter photos by folder in iOS. So easy!! Thanks.
Why is it not possible to select a directory recursively in the app? That nobody can tell me that such a thing is not possible! Except disinterest.
This isn't in the current Android app. There is currently no easy way to filter the photos to only show images from the Photos folder. Instead, the Photos section shows all images in OneDrive creating tons of clutter. Searched in settings high and low, there is no option to change this.
Either they don't want to, or they can't. What's up, Microsoft?
It only works on the web interface. None of the mobile apps have this feature. I use iOS and android and also need to see a lot of book covers and other pictures before I can find a family photo.

This does not look fixed in the latest version of the Android app.

Am I blind or you just didn't really made a filter? Where is to be find?
Mike Vio commented
Is this feature available on iPhone yet?
Does not appear to be done ... where's this filter option?
Seriously, admin, where is this option in the app, cannot see it...
How ? I dont see any option to do this...

This is a glaring omission on MS
Android is really a disaster compared to Microsoft Mobile 10. I hope the problem is not an Android problem. Because, so OneDrive is not to be used for photos. I see thousands of pictures of my disk collections in my photo folder. Unfortunately, this good proposal needs 500 votes before Microsoft responds.

I have more than 4000 covers of books. Since I cannot choose to only show pictures from the picture folder all these covers show up as photos. In other words: photos shows files that are not photos (but happen to be .jpg files).
