OneDrive for Web Gains Image Editing Tools, Coming to iOS App Soon

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 :)

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.
