  1. Duplicate files/photos ( duplicates )

    Like other suggestions I would like a way to not have duplicate files/photos, to save space.

    Can we have some specific way to:

    1) run a "duplicate" search that can automatically delete files/photos based on a name, size and date
    2) search for duplicates and then list them all in name order, showing name, size and date to then give option to review then delete
    3) a file compare search for similar looking files, then the option to delete one(s)

  2. 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,…

    Wanted to provide an update, thanks for the suggestion, but this is not in our current plans right now.

  3. 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

    Wanted to provide an update: we understand the scenario and ask; and while we’re looking into this, it’s not in our immediate roadmap.

  4. folder color

    It would be nice for the user to be able to assign different colors to individual folders to improve their readability. I guess this has probably been requested yet,n but I could not find any previous post dealing with that subject.
    Thanks.

    Thank you for the request. We understand the ask. At this point it’s not in our immediate plans. We will share more info as we have updates.

  5. Enable customisable slideshow speed on onedrive.com

    The only way to see photos full screen on onedrive.com is to use the slideshow. But this automatically scrolls through the photos way too quickly.

    Please add a customisable speed, preferably with a manual option that only scrolls to the next photo with a key press.

    (Being able to view a photo full screen without using slideshow would also help)

    Wanted to provide an update here. While this is something we want to do, we are not working on it for the immediate future. When this is in current plans, we will update the status here.

  6. 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%…
