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.
I’m going to open this one back up. We are working to add support to filter the Android photos view to include all photos or those only in the Pictures folder, for all users not only for Samsung Gallery Sync customers.

Not available, in stock store app neither on 6.6 beta 2.

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...

Yesssss!!!! Bercause of this Problem i'm here ! Nice to see, that i'm not the only one ! I hate it !!! I see almost 100.000 Images from the whole OneDrive( Screenshots, Tilesets, Backgrounds, Wallpapers, Sprites, Graphics i made and so on, before i see a single Family Photo !! That's really unusable!

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).
How come this is not fixed already? What is the point of auto upload photos from the phone if there is not photo album out of it - just all pictures from whole OneDrive together.

this should have been a feature for a while now. Its the only thing i dislike about onedrive tbh. For the rest its been perfect so far.
It quite frankly is ridiculous for this to not already be a feature. I download an icon pack or something and suddenly my photo feed is totally useless. Why on earth would I not be able to specify what images actually count as photos to put in a photo feed? It's 2019 guys, sort it out.

I need this Feature to. For Example; On my OneDrive is my Calibre Ebook Libery and every new Book Cover is shown under Pictures :(
Or i use scans of User Agreements as jpg, that is Not a Photo, its a scan outside the Picture Folders
Yes please. I save some portable apps on my OneDrive and everytime an app gets an update and therefore updated graphics, a lot of ugly pictures are on top of my pictures list in OneDrive for Android. MS should really put more effort in the picture gallery part of the app, it's the number one reason why I'm very close to switch back to Google Drive and the inferior Google Photos app.
Strongly agree, it is frustrating the way it is implemented now
Photos view on Android finds thumbnails, album cover art etc photo files which it shows on photos stream and makes quite mess of it. I hope view could be limited to Pictures folder only.
The directory is actually "Pictures", but yes the mobile app should have parity with web. It feels incomplete.
