Bring back Photo Information Pane!
When viewing individual photographs on OneDrive.com, the Information Pane (Camera settings, date taken, shared with and comments) is no longer visible!
Instead you have to click an "I" icon to the bottom right and wait for it.... the information is ridiculously superimposed over the photograph!
Totally distracting, with UI elements such as scroll bar (I have a lot of people I share photos with) and an 'Information' button at opposite ends of the screen.
This renders the whole user experience clunky and unusable; basically everything is far too spread out. Why is the photo title/caption relegated to the bottom left hand corner???!!!!
The Information Pane/Window should not be positioned over the photo! It really does make me wonder what's going on in your design Department....
Basically, the Information Pane should be positioned side by side with the photo. That way, both can be read simultaneously without distraction.

That´s a great idea! I support it!
I agree with you. Are you aware of a bug that will make onedrive not backup your photos (but telling you it did)? See this topic and please vote!
Agreed. I really dislike this change.
I want to be able to see info - at least basic info - in a non-overlaid format.
I concur with jw. The new UI has greatly diminished the functionality of OneDrive's web interface.
In particular, the removal of picture captions is especially egregious since it provided an excellent method of communicating the content (and context) of photos to friends and family (when shared).
Once again, as with the removal of file placeholders, I am dumbfounded at decisions made by Microsoft and its usability team. These changes have removed value to the customer and have in no way improved the user experience with OneDrive.
Please improve your UI and reinstate captions.
