Microsoft announced A number of new features are coming to OneDrive for Web and OneDrive for Android, which includes photo editing and gallery management. As of today, OneDrive users can crop, rotate, and adjust the light and color of their photos from either platform.
The cropping feature gives OneDrive users chose preset ratios to make it easier to crop images on the fly. Of course, free-form cropping is also available so you can crop images the way you want.
The rotate feature is self-explanatory, but it’s worth mentioning that you can rotate images left and right 90 degrees or rotate the image 180 degrees. There’s also a gradual rotation that makes it easier to straighten tilted images.
Equally important are the new adjustment options that allow OneDrive users can change brightness, exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, and saturation. All of these improvements can be made on the go with a simple tap and you can even compare the new version of the image to the original.
All of these editing features are now available for OneDrive users online and on Android, but iOS users will get them too later this year. Keep in mind, however, that editing is currently only available for OneDrive personal accounts, as OneDrive for work and school accounts are set to receive these features sometime this summer Microsoft.

In addition, Android users get more options to organize and view their photos. The new setting is added to OneDrive, which creates folders based on the upload source so that images from specific sources (e.g., WhatsApp, Facebook, text messages, screenshots) are automatically added to the corresponding folders.
In addition, OneDrive users can keep images organized by date and group images by month and year. Unfortunately, these features are set to arrive in the next two months in the OneDrive for Android app. On the other hand, a new option to filter photos by folders is now available for both OneDrive for Android and OneDrive for the Web. Android users will find it in the upper right corner of the Photos tab.
