OneDrive users can now edit pictures after they've uploaded them to the cloud storage service, thanks to the addition of basic photo editing features announced this week by Microsoft.

Similar to tools found in Google Photos, the new features include standard cropping options with built-in presets for images to be used on social media, as well as flip and 90-degree and incremental rotate options for uploaded pictures.

There are some useful new light and color adjustments, too. Users can adjust brightness, exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, and color saturation, with a before/after comparison option to check your edits.

When you make edits to photos on OneDrive, you'll get the option to save the changes as a new image or overwrite the original image. And if you accidentally overwrite your original, you can use version history to recover it. Photo editing in OneDrive is currently limited to JPEG and PNG formats.

The new image editing features are now rolling out to OneDrive for Web and OneDrive for Android, with Microsoft bringing them to OneDrive for iOS later this year.

You know why now one ever complains about how bad OneDrive is like they do with iCloud? Because no one uses it.
heh, i use it for lots of stuff and think it's really great actually.. it beats google drive because well google is gross and the office suite you get with it is obviously awesome too.

also has a nice auto-backup feature for picture in iOS (inc. live pictures) .. i like :)

I’m guessing you never had to support it and all of its idiosyncrasies? PIA. 😖

I use OneDrive, iCloud, Google Drive, and DropBox. DropBox used to be far and away the most reliable cloud storage in my experiences... Google Drive was a close 2nd,with OneDrive and iCloud trailing badly. But Microsoft has made great strides over the past few years to significantly improve.

I've switched over to OneDrive as my primary personal cloud storage solution and Google Drive for collaborative needs and those tasks I run on chromebooks.

Interestingly, I'm finding that for myself, the more that Microsoft and Google improve their software and service presence on iOS/iPad OS, the more desirable those OS environments become.

But then again, cross-platform is a high priority for me... which unfortunately means using fewer and fewer of Apple's software and services.

OneDrive with Microsoft 365 is more valuable than iCloud subscription. Moreover, OneDrive files/folders can be shared publicly but iCloud ones can’t. You have to log in iCloud to view.

OneDrive is bloody awful. I am forced to use it at work under corp O365 and it’s buggy as hell. Especially when corp policy is to store compiler output in Documents which is synced to OF. Consistent conflicts editing office docs and occasional data loss. Also try recovering a specific old file version that has been deleted. Absolute ball ache. They never considered that use case other than testing it with 2 files or something in the bin. Total crap.

OneDrive has had image enhancement capabilities for a long time. These are just new capabilities being added.

While unfortunately you are technically correct (I'm forced to use that combination at work) it is a terrible experience in practice. OneDrive stops working faster than a McDonald's worker who just received a stimulus check.

I wish Apple would pick their game up in the professional office apps.

We don’t have perfect choices currently. I also don’t want to trust Google on this as the company treats the customers as pigs— feeding functions or storages as many as possible and suddenly killing them.

True. Apple has no interest whatsoever entering the enterprise market with iCloud. Box is crazy expensive. And Dropbox is just kind of…. there. I guess…

Perfect for who exactly ? Google is good but only if you don't feed the beast in the first place.
