Microsoft is updating OneDrive, your file hosting service, and both on the web and in the Android application has included a simple photo editor to modify them at will without the need for additional tools.
This launch is just the beginning of a series of news in terms of photos that will arrive throughout the next year, they explain from Microsoft, just shortly after Google Photos has ceased to be the great alternative for image storage by ceasing to offer unlimited space. There are different alternatives and one of them may be the Redmond service.
OneDrive image editing allows you to crop, rotate, flip, make light and color adjustments
Editing photos in OneDrive
It goes without saying that we will not find a powerful editor at the level of a specific software, nor can we find it in Google Photos or other solutions, but we will a very useful tool to perfect our photos uploaded to the cloud without complicating us.
Editing OneDrive images allows you to crop, rotate, flip, make light and color adjustments. We can carry out changes of this type in both JPG and PNG files, the most popular, excluding others for now. Modifications are extremely easy to carry out with controls familiar to most.
And, yes, only from personal accounts. Those with educational or business accounts will have to wait to receive the publisher.
During 2022, and if Microsoft's promises are fulfilled, we will see a renewed photos experience that will improve the management of photos
Once all the desired changes have been made We can both overwrite the original photo and save a new image to keep both versions. Even if we make a mistake and accidentally overwrite the original image, we will have the possibility to recover it thanks to the history of OneDrive.
The editor, as we said, is available on the OneDrive website, in the Android application and is expected to reach iOS by the end of the year. During 2022, and if Microsoft's promises are fulfilled, we will see a renewed photos experience that will improve the management of photos, an area in which Redmond's solution has faltered compared to Google's.
