Photo View only Photos folder(Android app)
Why the Photo view(Android app) show all image files from OneDrive? It's better If I can choose what folder I want to see when I use Photo View featute or is it possible Photo view default folder is Photos folder?
Now the photo view is useless if I want to show my photos taken from cameras.
The Onedrive website allows the exclusion of folders from pictures.
Onedrive for Android does not allow exclusion of folders from pictures.
Consequently, Onedrive for Android shows all the book covers from an ebook program along with personal photos from the pictures folder, even though the ebook covers are not located in the pictures folder.
Please allow Onedrive for Android to exclude folders from the pictures folder.

I have photos and other media files in my OneDrive. On the website I can restrict OneDrive to showing only files from "Pictures", but the tagging option still brings in pictures from the whole of OneDrive. On the Android app it's even worse - there's no option to restrict the folders at all. For me this makes the photo and tagging options almost useless - I don't want to see pictures from my media folders displayed in a "on this day in the past feature", it makes no sense at all.

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.
Yeah I'd love this! It's really annoying. On my PC I set the photos app to only show things from the Pictures folder in OneDrive.
On Android (or IOS) it shows folders from everywhere so my photos view contains a load of things I don't want in it.
Completely agree doesn't make sense to show all pictures from all Folders, this should be a basic feature.
Any solutions for this?
